Tibetan Windhorse Prayer flags - set of 20 flags
The windhorse is the most prevalent symbol used on prayer flags and is best selling flag. It represents good fortune and opportunities that makes things go well. WindHorse is the carrier of prayers on the wind in Tibetan culture and is synonymous with prayer flags.
The 4 Dignities surround WindHorse in the 4 corners of the flag. They are: Garuda, Dragon, Snow Lion and Snow Leopard. The mantras on the flag are those of Tara, Guru Rinpoche, Vajrasattva and Manjushri.
Buddhist belief is strong in the power of these sacred flags. The colours of a prayer flag and the symbols printed on it create a prayer or an offering that the wind distributes to the world each time it brushes against the flag. Just as life moves on and is replaced by new life, Tibetans renew their hopes for the world by continually mounting new flags along side the old.
Old flags should be left until they go white and then replaced.
Tibetan Prayer Flags are an excellent gift as they offer a positive message, are bright & colourful, inexpensive, light and help support small community based business.
