Prayer Flags in Tibet are hung in high places such as from the top of stupas and across mountain paths, so that the Lung Ta (the Wind Horse) will carry the blessings depicted on the flags to all beings. We have had some small (3-inch high) Lungta Prayer Flags made especially for SilverCrow and you. Your set will arrive in a handmade paper pouch for safekeeping when they are not hanging.
The central image of the Wind Horse carries the Flaming Jewel which is the wish fulfilling jewel of enlightenment. The writing printed on the flags include mantras of Padmasambhava (Guru Rinpoche), Chenrezi, and Manjushri. The five colors of the flags represent the five elements: blue for space, white for water, red for fire, green for wind, and yellow for earth.
This set of five flags arrives in an hand-made paper pouch and is made of good quality hemmed cotton, ready for hanging on the attached beaded string. Hang them in your garden, from a high window, in your trees and increase your merit by the action of blessing all beings.
