Weisang Ceremony on the Mountain
Weisang is a Tibetan household’s custom of burning offerings to make cloudy smog, hence this kind of praying is also called smoke offering. “Wei” means simmer in Chinese. ‘Sang’ is a Tibetan ‘ritual fireworks’. There is a variety in selection of material for Weisang, like branches pine and cypress, leaves of herbs such as Artemisia argyi and heath. It is said that the fragrance in the smoke produced during burning the pine trees and cypresses, can not only bathe unlucky and dirty things of ordinary people, but also aromatize the palace of mountain god who will be pleased after smelling the aroma. Therefore, Tibetan people pray for good fortune, good harvest, peace and prosperity by this way.
