Universal Incense Offering Day & Lhabsang Puja

This is a Tibetan Buddhist festival also known as Dzam Ling Chi Sang. This is celebrated on the 15th day of the fifth month in Tibetan Calendar. This is the festival wherein a spiritual cleansing is performed. On this day, Tibetan Buddhists go to the tops of local mountains to burn incense and hang prayer flags. And because of the burning of incenses as offerings, this is also known as The Incense Festival.


This festival was originally meant to commemorate Guru Rinpoche's subjugation of the local deities. 'Sang' is a Tibetan 'ritual fireworks'. Branches pine and cypress, leaves of herbs such as Artemisia argyi and heath are used to burn the incense.
