Incense is burned to provide pleasant fragrances for rooms and clothing, to communicate with the gods, and to drive out evil spirits. 

In China, incense burning is a long established tradition and has many applications.

 

Incense is burned to provide pleasant fragrances for rooms and clothing, to communicate with the gods, and to drive out evil spirits. Burning incense during I Ching readings is an absolute must, because it creates the right atmosphere in which to receive the divine wisdom or the pure breath of the gods.
