In Tibet, the seed of traditionally using incense exists at an early age of human evolution. Buddhism flourished to a great extent in the 7th century under the reign of successive religious kings of Tibet, along with the preservation and development of making incense based on the secret and tantric text by the great Indian Buddhist scholar Nagarjuna. Various formulas for making incense were developed by the great scholars of Tibetan medicine like Zurkhar Lodge Gyalpo and Deumar in 14th and 17th century respectively. These were well preserved by modern scholars like Ven. Dr. Kyenrab Norbu. In accordance with traditional formulae this quality incense is prepared.
