香客 __ buddhist pilgrim __ zarándok

among Buddhist symbols incense is used in the same sense as in the offering of flowers. it is a symbol which signifies the spirit of self purification and self-dedication.

some kinds of incense are powdered; others are in the form of sticks of various shapes. there are also different colors: purple, black, yellow, green, and brown.

as this incense burns, it is our joy to diffuse sweet fragrance: “I will dedicate my body for higher purposes, more than just for myself.”
