Our Tibetan Lung Ta (windhorse) prayer flags make the perfect gift for someone you care about or to bring peace and a calming presence to your home.
These horizontal 10 leaf prayer flags come with five Lung Ta and five Buddha of compassion flags, or 10 Lung Ta flags, in each set. They have been handmade by Tibetan artisans in Nepal using a traditional woodblock print method. Each one is guaranteed to be Fair Trade made.
Prayer flags are traditionally strung across doorways, roofs, temples, stupas or mountain passes and are believed to carry blessings from the prayers or mantras depicted on each flag. Wind blowing across the flags is said to purify and sanctify the air. As the flags fade, due to the sun and other elements, they are believed to become more auspicious and serve as a reminder of how the world constantly changes and we are all ultimately destined to decay in accordance with nature's laws.
The Buddha of Compassion flag image - also known as Chenrezig - is one of the most revered Bodhisattvas in the Tibetan Buddhist pantheon.
The five colours of the flags follow traditional Chinese colour theory, each one representing one of the natural elements: water, fire, wood, metal and earth.
