Description
 
Shin Mainichi Koh Sandalwood Incense, approximately 50 Sticks - Each stick is 10 inches long.

Sandalwood, or chandan, is cooling, and considered to be of the padma (lotus) group and
attributed to Amitabha Buddha. Sandalwood scent is believed to transform one's desires and
maintain a person's alertness while in meditation. Sandalwood is also one of the more
popular scents used for incense used when offering incense to the Buddha.

Sandalwood smells somewhat like other wood scents, except it has a bright and fresh edge with few natural
analogues.  Its sedative property clears stress from the nervous system.

Called Chandana, Rakta or Raktachandana, Red Sandalwood, and Santalum Album.  Chandan belongs to the family Santalaceae. The sandal tree grows almost exclusively in the forests of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Timor Islands, and Indonesia.

Why is sandalwood an ingredient in so many different kinds of incense?

Chandan, also known as Sandalwood, is considered to be of the padma (lotus) group, associated with the qualities of Amitabha Buddha, which are compassion, devotion, and love. Chandan's scent is believed to purify desires and maintain a person's alertness while in meditation. Chandan is also one of the more popular scents used when offering incense. Sandalwood smells somewhat like other wood scents, except it has a bright and fresh edge with few natural analogues.  Its sedative property clears stress from the nervous system.

Called Chandana, Rakta or Raktachandana, Red Sandalwood is a traditional Indian incense and dye wood used for ritual, meditation, candlemaking and cloth dyeing. In Hindu marriages, it is burned on a sacred fire within the marriage tent so that the fumes surround the bridal pair. The sandal tree, botanically known as Santalum Album, belongs to the family Santalaceae. The sandal tree grows almost exclusively in the forests of Karnataka, followed by Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, and the Timor Islands of Indonesia.

Because of chandan's (sandalwood's) enrichment of the Padma (Lotus) Buddha wisdom
qualities, it is the most frequently used scent for Bhakti (devotion) practices, since sandalwood or chandan is a tonic to the heart, evocative of calm love and devotion.


According to traditional Ayurvedic sources, Chandan dispels nervousness, cooling, clears
depression, relaxes headache, lessens insomnia, reduces stomach pains, helps urinary
troubles, relieves Pitta heat conditions, sunburn, acne, rashes, fevers, herpes, sores,
ulcers, pitta imbalance, and heat sickness.  

It is also calming, helps sleep, and centers the mind.
