Cow Dung Incense

 

Obtain one kilo of the following items and grind into a fine powder:

1. Nagarmutha

2. Ral

3. Lal chandan

4. Jatamachi

5. Kapoor kajuri

6. Ghee Proceedure:

Mix the 5 powders together Sprinkle and mix in the ghee thoroughly Blend in three kilos of fresh gober and again mix thoroughly. Keep the mixture in a covered pot so that it stays moist. It should be wet enough so that it stays together when pressed into cones or dhoop sticks. Then dry them in the sun. We made some 2-foot frames out of half inch angle with screen and lay the moist cylinders on them and plance the screens in the sun. They dry in two days of good sun.

The incense offers a clean earthy and sancified aroma akin to Tibetin incense. All of the ingredients are said to produce oxygyn while burning.

Packets of 14 sticks are available for $4.00 each. Click here to order 

 






To a man whose mind is free there is something even more intolerable in the sufferings of animals than in the sufferings of man. For with the latter it is at least admitted that suffering is evil and that the man who causes it is a criminal. But thousands of animals are uselessly butchered every day without a shadow of remorse.

Romain Rolland, Nobel Prize 1915
