THE TEN VIRTUES OF INCENSE


Written by an anonymous Zen monk over 400 years ago and they still hold true today.



  1.  Promotes communication with the transcendent
  2. Purifies the mind and body
  3. Has a cleansing effect
  4. Keeps one alert
  5. Is a companion in solitude
  6. Offers a moment of peace in the midst of chaos
  7. When it is plentiful, one never tires of it
  8. When it is scarce, one can still be satisfied
  9. Effective, even when aged
  10. Used daily, it does not harm
