Which type of Incense do Bon Monks use for meditation? I would think that is important as there are so many kinds of incense made. Some good and some not so good. I purchased some "Lama Chodpa 100% pure natural Tibetan incense" I bought all four types. Maybe it is just me but I was very disappointed with it. Can anyone give me some heads up on this.

Thanks

Mike

I can't directly answer your question, but here are a couple links to Bon incense from Bonpos.
The folks at Lingmincha's store are very friendly and you could ask them what the Lamas recommend.

This one is Menri Incense, shipped from U.S.

Several kinds of Bon incense.

Have you or anyone else tried to order anything from the Bon Foundation? I sent them an email @ marilynear@aol.com from the contact email address at the bottom of their order form and the email never went through? So, I'm skeptical of sending any money until I can make sure the offer is still valid. I would also like to Order the "THE YUNGDRUNG BON KANJUR" CD's from them also if i can. I will check out the Ligmincha Institute's Bookstore and Tibet Shop and see what they have to say. You will have to forgive me as I'm a real newbie to Yungdrung Bon. Thank you very kindly for your suggestions. :namaste:

No, I haven't bought anything from the Bon Foundation, I mostly go through the Ligmincha webstore. They may know how you can get those cd's. Can't hurt to ask.
