* Lhasang : A lhasang is a liturgical ceremony derived from the Tibetan tradition involving the burning juniper to make an offering of fragrant smoke to the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, transcendent and worldly deities. The function of the lhasang is to purify negative actions, obstacles, and environmental problems, and to magnetize positive circumstances, health, prosperity, and harmonious relations with people and the environment. Lhasangs are performed on significant days of the calendar, such as Summer Solstice.
