Tibetan Prayer Flags
“To me there are few things more beautiful than colorful prayer flags fluttering in the wind- sometimes waving gently, sometimes raging; a dance of shadow and light. There is perhaps no simpler way to create good merit in this troubled world of ours than to put prayer flags up for the benefit of other living beings. Prayer flags are not just pretty pieces of colored cloth with funny writing on them. The ancient Buddhist prayers, mantras and powerful symbols displayed on them produce a spiritual vibration that is activated and carried by the wind across the countryside. All beings that are touched by the wind are uplifted and a little happier. The silent prayers are blessings spoken on the breath of nature. Just as a drop of water can permeate the ocean, prayers dissolved in the wind extend to fill all of space.” Timothy Clark, Radiant Heart Studio http://www.prayerflags.com/download/article.pdf
New Orleans raised over ten miles of prayer flags to welcome His Holiness Dalai Lama to our city in May, 2013. These flags, the same as the ones used here in New Orleans, are purchased from a lovely family who run a dharma shop near the well known Stupa in Boudha, Kathmandu, Nepal.
Each flag is 9" x 9". There are 25 flags on this string and stretches about 20 feet.
