Shechen Surpoe Pure and Sacred offering Tibetan Incense|
One of the six main Monasteries of Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, Shechen Monastery, originally located in Kham, Tibet was destroyed during cultural revolution in late 1950s and rebuilt in Boudhanath, Nepal in 1985.
In the 1980s, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche transplanted the rich tradition of the original Shechen Monastery to a new home near the Stupa of Boudhanath in Kathmandu, Nepal . It was his wish that this monastery would maintain the philosophical, contemplative, and artistic traditions of the mother monastery.
Sur is used by the Buddhist as a pure and sacred offering to the sense of the smell, whereby it is said to be able to not only please Buddhas and Guardian deities, but also to satiate the ordinary beings from the six realms and pacify demons and obstacle makers.
This Sur is cleanly and carefully prepared according to ancient Tibetan tradition. Its ingredients include the "three white things" (Yoghurt, Milk and Butter), the three sweet things (Molassses, Honey and Sugar) the six medicinal spices; Barley flour, and special, sacred substance, which are all precisely combined in order to make this supreme offering.
