Dhupaya incense is traditional to the indigenous people of the Newari Community in Nepal, who burn rope style incense daily during meditation practice and as offerings to the Gods, popular in both Hindu and Buddhist traditions. It is made by turning many different aromatic herbs foraged from the Himalayas into finely powdered form and then wrapping them in very thin strips of Lokta paper (an ancient form of Nepalese artisan made paper) and gently twisting it into what appears to be a rope-like incense.
Meaning: Karma is a sanskrit word that translates to "action", it is a concept adopted by eastern religions where like causes create like effects, therefore positive actions lead to positive effects while negative actions or deeds lead to harmful consequences. The smoke that is created from this incense helps to connect with this concept, allowing for reflection upon our own existence and the current path that we are on.
Packaging: Stupa Incense have created packaging with a lovely modern twist that beautifully honours an incense with an ancient tradition. The 100% recyclable lokta paper tube with lid is cream coloured with black writing and a blue icon style image of rope incense on the side.
