Incense

Incense burning has been an important aspect of practice in many of the world's religious traditions. In Japan, the "Ten Virtues of Koh (incense)" as understood in the practice of Kodo, the Way of Incense, are:

1)  it brings communication with the transcendent,

2)  purifies the mind and body,

3)  removes uncleanliness,

4)  keeps one alert,

5)  can be a companion in the midst of solitude,

6)  in the midst of busy affairs, it brings a moment of peace,

7)  when it is plentiful, one never tires of it,

8)  when there is little, still one is satisfied,

9)  age does not change its efficacy,

10) used every day, it does no harm.
