The briquette should start to crackle and glow. Next, set the charcoal in a container on a bed of sand. You can also use a dhoopdanfor lighting the dhoop. The sand layer under the charcoal should be at least 3/4-1 inch thick.Slowly fan or blow on the tablet. Only after the charcoal is aglow and stops crackling, use a knife, spoon or tweezers to drop the incense onto the tablet. Fan the dhoop to let the aroma spread. The charcoal may continue to burn for upto two hours after lighting - so dont just throw it in a wastebasket. Use tweezers to extract the tablet and submerse it in water to discard if the tablet is still lit.
