Further Information:

Texts on the subject of Sang (bsang/bsangs) or Purificatory Incense Smoke Offering:


A simple, eight-line text to accompany the offering of sang or fragrant incense smoke to Gesar, the great leonine warrior-king.

Lasel Chenmo, 'The Great Spirit Clearing', is a practice for offering sang (incense smoke) to the nāgas (serpent spirits). It is a terma composed by Padmasambhava and revealed by Karma Chakme. This edition also includes further practices written by Paṇchen Lobzang Chökyi Gyaltsen (1570–1662), Tsasum Terdak Lingpa (1694–1738) and others.

A simple practice of smoke offering, which Mipham composed at Thrangu hermitage in 1905.

A very short, four-line liturgy for a purificatory smoke offering (mnol bsang) based on the view of the Great Perfection.

Divine Blue Water (lha chab sngon mo) is a smoke offering (bsang) ritual that functions as a remedy against ritual pollution (grib), specifically the form known as ‘contamination’ (mnol). The text is attributed to Padmasambhava, but was not hidden as a treasure (gter ma); it was painted on the wall at Samye Monastery and it is from there that the textual lineage derives. Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche (1904–1987) edited the version published here, which appears in modern editions of the Nyingma Kama.
