Lama Chodpa Incense sticks are a result of centuries-old Tibetan monastic recipes merged with the traditional Vedic herbs of the Gaadi nomadic Himalayan tribal community. Over 60 years ago the 8th Khamtrul Rinpoche settled His Tibetan refugees in the small Gaadi village of Jhikli
Blending the Ancient Tebitan recipe held in scrolls at the monastery with traditional knowledge and Ethno-botanic research conducted over a lifetime by the world-renowned scientist Dr.Nag, The nomadic heritage of the Gaddi and their seasonal harvesting of sacred medicinal herbs is brought to life and preserved through the artisanal production of Lama Chopa Incense
With a tradition of environmental stewardship, Lama Chodpa is a very different Incense. This project was born from a desire to unite two communities, with each other and the world.
