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).

Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche (1904–1987) edited the version published here, which appears in modern editions of the Nyingma Kama.

This short ritual for offering fragrant incense smoke was written at Lapchi, in the mountains near the border between southern Tibet and Nepal.
