At other times we feel far from connected, we feel separate. The notion of a hostile world out there, and us in here, seems overwhelming. In these times meditation helps to ground us, and return us to the source. Over time it can help to dispel this sense of separation entirely, resulting in a much talked about state called ‘enlightenment’
What is enlightenment?
In this journey of meditation, ritual plays a useful part. When life sweeps us away, and the busy mind chatters so fast it seems, more than ever, to define our experience of the moment, then simple rituals like chanting, yoga asana, breathing, and lighting incense can help bring us down to earth. Many cultures use incense sticks as a gesture of thanks, as part of a puja offering, and as a signal for the beginning of devotional practice. They light a stick and bow in namaste, and thanks existence for the miracle of this moment.
dhuni has no creed or belief system to espouse, and welcomes all faiths to use our incense in praise of whatever you feel to be divine. For us, the burning of incense is the bringing together of sacred herbs and flower essences, the purest and most extraordinary in the natural world, and to offer them up to Agni, the God of Fire, which represents the power of transformation in all of us. We burn these meditation incense sticks as a precedent to asana or meditation, and with gratitude and love. (http://www.dhuni.co.uk)
With the exception of citronella (although even this is useful when in a mosquito rich environment)
