Guggul is a resin of Commiphora Mukul tree that grows in India, its fragrance is similar to that of myrrh. Small amounts of guggul should be burnt in the beginning of various sadhana practices at the moment of dispelling the obstructing forces and visualizing the protection circle. It is said in the teachings that obstructing forces cannot stand the smell of guggul.
Guggul is burned in a separate vessel over hot coals. The vessel is then carried around the prayer hall to dispel evil spirits with the smoke.
This guggul has been thoroughly selected by the Senior Chöpön (master of ritual ceremonies) of Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling monastery. Same guggul is used daily during the pujas at KNSL.
According to the teachings, guggul should be consecrated before being used in the ritual practice. Therefore our guggul has been properly consecrated during a puja conducted by an assembly of Senior Lamas and monks of KNSL.
One pack contains 50 gram.
