This black ceramic incense burner is handmade by potters in Kathmandu.
It features the sacred mantra of compassion, 'Om Mani Padme Hum' in Tibetan script.
The Om Mani mantra invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion.
This simple incense burner carries with it a meaningful message. It is a great reminder each time you burn incense to live with compassion and understanding. It includes one larger hole for Tibetan style incense and one smaller hole for Japanese style incense.
This compact incense burner is now my everyday one because it fits nicely on my small altar, accommodates both Tibetan and Japanese incense sticks, and adds a pleasing touch of Nepal handicrafts to the presentation.
