Guggul is a resin of the Commiphora Mukul tree of India, its fragrance is similar to that of myrrh. Small amounts of guggul are traditionally burnt at the beginning of various sadhana practices to dispel obstructing forces. It is said that obstructing forces flee immediately unable to stand the smell of guggul. This guggul has been selected by the Senior Chöpön (master of ritual ceremonies) of Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling monastery. The same guggul is used daily during the pujas at Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling. Our guggul has been properly consecrated by the ritual master at Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling following an extensive Vajrakilaya puja.
