Paper Tibetan Prayer Flags
Overall length 8'. 25 paper flags, each 2-1/2" x 2-1/2".
Tibetan Buddhists use prayer flags to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. Tibetans believe the prayers and mantras will be blown upward as offerings to their deities and will bring benefits (such as happiness and good health) to all people throughout the world. These flags are meant to hang horizontally, or in the lung ta (wind horse) style. The five flag colors represent the five elements: blue (earth), white (water), red (fire), saffron (infinite space), and green (cosmic winds). These prayer flags are printed from hand carved woodblocks in the traditional manner. Enjoy the slow fading of color as they hang in the elements.
