TIBETAN PRAYER FLAGS
A string of 5 Tibetan Prayer Flags
Each flag measures approx. 13cm x 13cm
Prayer Flags are inscribed with auspicious symbols, invocations, prayers, and mantras. Tibetan Buddhists for centuries have planted these flags outside their homes and places of spiritual practice for the wind to carry the beneficent vibrations across the countryside. Prayer flags are said to bring happiness, long life and prosperity to the flag planter and those in the vicinity.
The 5 colours of prayer flags represent the 5 basic elements: yellow-earth, green–water, red-fire, white-air, blue-space. Balancing these elements externally brings harmony to the environment. Balancing the elements internally brings health to the body and the mind.
These flags are hand made, fair trade items. As you will see from the photos, the edges are not hemmed so a little fraying may occur.
