How To Make Your Own Dhoof?

Recommended Posts


Does anyone make or know how to make their own dhoof (incense sticks)? If you do please share on this thread – along with results.

I came across the following ‘recipe’ in Sant Jagjit Singh Ji’s book – Society of Saints which can be downloaded from the following: http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CBsQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.boss-uk.org%2Farticles%2Fpdf%2FTheSocietyofSaintsv3.pdf&ei=A8n0TZedGs6WhQfmgojjBg&usg=AFQjCNFJE5bfzdxJmaQf1Hv7uDgcSE7kjg

“Kastoori – 2 rati

Kesar (Saffron) – 4 mashe

Mushkapoor – 3 mashe

Suche Moti – 1 rati

Butter of cow’s milk – 3 shatank

Sugar (unrefined) – 2 shatank

Javiti, Desi Joon, InderJoon – 1 tola

Shal Shalira, Kapoor-kachari – 1 tola each

Whitesandalwood, Red sandalwood – 1 tola each

Small cardamom, bi cardamom – 1 tola each

Dried coconut, fresh coconut, almonds - 2 tola each

Raisins, special essence stick - 2 tola each

Black aniseed, white aniseed, Nagar motha – 2 tola each

Basmati rice, scent: Rose Brahmi (should be fragrant) – 3 tola/1 tola

Phool Dhava, Loh Bhan - 1 tola each

Kachoor uch, cinnamon – 1 tola each

These should be mixed together with sugar and butter to prepare the essence sticks.”

I think I’m going to need mum’s help with quantities, sourcing and shopping for the above.

On Ang 525 Bhagat Ravidaas Ji tells us how to make dhoof and mentions how we can enlist the help of our Mother.

The calf has contaminated the milk in the teats. The bumblebee has contaminated the flower, and the fish has contaminated the water.

O mother, where shall I find any offering for the Lord's worship? I cannot find any flowers worthy of the incomparable Lord.

The snakes encircle the sandalwood trees, poison and nectar dwell there together.

Incense, lamps and offerings of food have become impure, so how are your servants to worship you?

qnu mnu Arpau pUj crwvau ] gur prswid inrMjnu pwvau ]4]

I dedicate and offer my mind and body to you. By Guru's Grace, I attain the immaculate Lord.

Apart from this, I cannot offer any other worship. What will my fate be?

Bhai Gurdas Ji expands on this here: http://www.sikhitoth...?ShabadID=5837.

    • First thing, these types of situations aren't anything new to the panth. Second thing, if we don't do different moves to previous ones, how can we expect outcomes to be different? Plus, if he's put his head up above the parapet like that, I'm sure he full well knows where it can go.  I'm sure he's not naive.    They should break out all those people who have been imprisoned for Waheguru knows how long, well after their sentences were completed. Actually that should have been done a long time ago. 
    • Hello everyone! Its a been a minute...How you been? Guess i am back because H*ndus are out full force wanting to k*ll Sikhs ..... We are facing turmoil.... Meanwhile on twitter they going insanse with their genocide threats memes etc I dont even know anymore what there is left.....sick and tired facing injustices  Either Amritpal will be k*illed of or an 'accident' like Deep Sidhu  Its insane last 3 years have been like we are in the same ditch cycle  @dallysingh101 @californiasardar1 @Kaurr @MisterrSingh (and rest i can't remember)
    • There is a lot of false media , false allegations , false whereabouts of Bhai Amritpal Singh. A person who has taken a step , to devote is life in helping :- 1. Those who on drugs 2. A lifeline for those Mothers who see there children ,dosed up in Drugs  3. Telling them to take amrit , do meditation , do seva , read gurbani 4. Stand up for your rights 5. Get together as a kaum  6. Speaking up against atrocities carried out on the minorities   He is deemed as a threat to Punjab , for his actions . How low can the Police , MPs, the leadshership in India go . They are very threatened by Bhai Amritpal Singhs mindset , a mindset to free the Sikhs , and unravel the corruption behind Indias politics.  May waheguru keep Bhai Amritpal Singh in chardikala and give him strength to fight against injustices and wake up the Kaum worldwide regardless of ones background.  
    • There's bus service called Indo-Canadian operating from Delhi to main cities of Punjab (like Ludhiana). Never tried it but I know people who have and heard it's quite safe and stops along the way at restaurants. From Ludhiana, you can take a local bus to Moga city and book a hotel (don't know much about Punjab hotels as I never stayed in one). You can book online for the bus.  I've travelled to Punjab for a long time, as a local of that area, it's perfectly safe. Just take normal pre-cautions. Local shop food in Punjab is safe to eat if you can handle oil, masala's, etc.  You don't have to worry about being targeted because of being Sabat Soorat. Seen plenty of Sabat Soorat men and Nihangs and no one targets them. Police are not an issue, they don't bother anyone whose trying to get by their life normally. You can keep a few hundred rupees in your pocket just in case you do get into trouble with them in an unlikely incident.  To blend in, Try to dress like a local. Wear a white Kurta-Pajama or simple western clothing  Pretend you're just visiting from another Indian or Punjab city (don't tell people you're from abroad as you can get overcharged for cheap things) Communicate in local Punjabi as much as possible or speak in an Indian accent if you can't. But some NRI's have accents that give it away easily.  Bargain when you're buying things (apart from food places or if the shop specifically says "fixed price"). Bargaining is great and you can bring down the price by half.  Lastly, just enjoy your stay, there's a lot of history to explore in Punjab too apart from the mainstream/popular places like Wagah border, Harmandir Sahib or Chandigarh.
