Is burning charcoal incense safe?

Recommended Posts

I am not questioning any maryada. We should use dhoof and jot as that is maryada, but I was looking to buy some new doof with charcoals, but read somewhere that the coals produce smoke that is similar to that of tobacco. It is not the same as tobacco, but was linked to similar health effects due to combustion like lung cancer or lung diseases if used for many years continuously in rooms with little to no ventilation. My question was, can this be avoided if it is true by increasing ventilation and how much ventilation would you say is good. Like I was thinking of just lighting it daily at amritvela, do my nitnem in the room where we did prakash of maharaj in sancheya, walk around the entire house with it, take it back to maharaj ji's room, do ardas and put it out. Maybe an hour or 2 daily. I thought of just turning on exhaust fans in kitchen, washroom, maybe open window, although that is not preferable right now in Canada's winter.What would you suggest/recommend/advise?

If you wanted to know, I was looking at bakhoor incencse with charcoal disks

Then I found this article:

Either way, smoke is smoke. In the older era, most homes were more open.. Unlike homes in the west withglass windows. Just use normal stick toof and open the window. Even one toof stick seems like so much for me during Canadian winters. I keep my rooms window open a bit no matter how cold it is outside, for fresh air. Just compare the indoor smell with outdoors. Whichever room I light a toof in, I open the window.

I burn dhoof when doing morning nitnem, leave the windows open and make sure that the smoke is able to get out of the room. I have loads of different scents of dhoof lol. I have sandalwood, lavender, Rose, Vanilla etc even strawberry lol!

While i dont encourage any kind of a ritual at least against Maharaaj. But Still if you are not convinced by anything then try Using these, These are totally made from Flowers that are showered on idols in Hindu Temples and The Ganges River.... THis is actually a STARTUP by two young indian Men which is flourishing fast...... So, If you are not convinced by anything then try Using these, as these are not Charcoal Made.

    • I think only the south part of Goa is christian. I have been to Goa, there are a lot of churches that sitting on old Hindu temples. There are also Hindu temples in Portuguese style but there are older structures of older temples. Goa also had their own inquisitions.
    • The elections were all fraud as well.  My mother has many Christian friends from goa who hate modi and bjp. And they were saying that bjp even won in the areas with strong Christian populations which is impossible.  VID-20190525-WA0005.mp4
    • I agree I think these people are payed. Social media is way more influential than books, tv or radio so they have now moved onto the internet.  There are countless sites like these. There's a Twitter page called indology which had countless tweets on how the gurus worshiped devis etc And then you have people like that nihang nidar man with his books and sanatan sikhi websites.  You have parcharks like that trilochan with his red tilak and guru ma anandmurti with their blend of sikh and hindu speeches.   Believe it or not but many aunties actually like listening to these fake babe that mix sikhi with hindu stuff. 
    • They are paid to do it. Like I said, it's not random weirdos trolling in their spare time for kicks. For years I baulked at the idea of it, thinking it sounded too much like a dodgy conspiracy theory, but having read up on the way information is weaponised in this information and digital age, it's clear that there's an official apparatus to these operations. Due to these activities being relatively new as technology has progressed over the past few decades, it makes sense that controlling the flow and content of information on the apparently "lawless" internet is arguably more important to nation states and certain powerful factions than similar social and ideological engineering executed on television, radio, and other legacy forms of entertainment.
    • These people are very active on social media as Well, I remember a few on YouTube, they used to write comments on nearly every sikh video, insulting sikhi and questioning. Same questions and insults copied and pasted on every video.
