Description

The history of Chinese incense burner culture can be traced back to the “Ding” in the Shang and Zhou dynasties. In ancient China, bronze tripods were used for cooking meat and offering sacrifices. The ancestors devoted all they had to pray to the heavens, asking the gods and ancestors to bless their tribe and the country. However, this is still different from the incense burner that people see today. “Rizhao censer produces purple smoke” “Looking at Lushan Waterfall” written by Li Bai, a great poet of the Tang Dynasty, has been passed down through the ages. The work describes that on the censer peak of Lushan Mountain, the first sun is shining, the purple smoke is dense, the waterfall is high, and the waterfall is flying. It shows the atmosphere and time of the prosperous Tang Dynasty. People’s preference for incense burners. In people’s living habits, it is believed that the biggest function of the incense burner is a ritual vessel for worshiping Buddha or ancestors. In fact, the censer is also a favorite of literati. If you place it in the hall or on the desk in the study, light a stick of incense when reading, and you will have the wonderful artistic conception of “reading at night with red sleeves and incense”. The spiritual incense burner endows people with more life and spirituality. It travels through the tunnel of time to pursue and appreciate the profound history and culture.
After Indian Buddhism was introduced to China, it had a relationship with local culture, gradually changed its appearance, and integrated into Chinese traditional culture. The trinity of Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism formed the mainstream of Chinese culture. During the Wei and Jin Dynasties, people used Lao and Zhuang to explain Buddhism. After the Eastern Jin Dynasty, Buddhism and metaphysics tended to merge, which was deeply appreciated by scholars and bureaucrats. Until the Southern and Northern Dynasties, the independent status of Buddhism, together with its deep-rooted spiritual and cultural influence, was in full swing, especially when Bodhidharma, the first ancestor of Zen Buddhism, came to China from the east, and Chinese Zen Buddhism began. It has become common practice to build Buddhas and temples in various places, and the incense burner as a sacrificial ritual vessel has been widely used.
