Tibetan Prayer Flags

Product Details

The practice of hanging prayer flags goes back thousands of years as a shamanic way to help balance the ancient elements that the colours of the flags represent. It is said that this balance can be achieved both internally, bringing health to mind and body, and externally by bringing harmony to the environment.  In fact the Tibetan word for prayer flags is Dar Cho, “Dar” means to increase life, fortune, health and wealth. “Cho” means all sentient beings. These prayer flags feature ‘Lung-ta’ the wind horse, which carries the prayers on the flags as they flutter in the wind to generate a natural positive energy.

After some time the prayer flags will naturally fade and fray, symbolising the passing nature of all things, they are deliberately not hemmed. When that happens, the flags are traditionally burned to carry their blessings to the heavens and then replaced by new flags that contain our renewed wishes. Alternatively, you may simply put new ones over the old ones.

Prayer flags can be hung both inside to increase harmony and spiritual awareness or outside (the higher the better) to benefit the environment and all beings touched by the wind. It is important to remember that prayer flags should be treated with respect as they contain sacred text and symbols. When hanging the flags it is also important to have the correct intentions: “May all beings benefit”. Each flag is 25cm x 20cm
