Legend has it that the first one who burns an incense stick to send prayers to gods can receive additional good luck from Jade Emperor.
As a matter of fact, there is a holy paradise within ourselves, which is our Godhood or Buddhahood.
At the beginning of a new year, we are advised to burn the first good-luck incense stick to appreciate, recognize, admire what we are and we have completed. By such doing, we simultaneously wish ourselves peace, health, wealth, good luck, wisdom, compassion, and courage. With all those mentioned, we allow the love within us spread all over to any corner of this world.
Love, indeed, is the prettiest of all.
Love, doubtlessly, can be compared to the incense of our heart that can emanate the furthest.
