Prayer Flags

Preserved in the ancient Tibetan traditions are sacred methods for generating positive energy, creating harmony in nature, and clearing the accumulated karma of beings. According to Buddhist scripture, the many prayers, texts, mantras, and images written onto fabric and flown as flags, generate a sacred healing power that has a positive effect on the whole environment and all beings inhabiting it.

As the sunlight and wind move across the surface of the fabric, the energies of the colors, letters, and shapes are transmitted outward and into the world.

Colors and Symbols of the Prayer Flags

Intricate arrangements of symbolic images and colors represent the Buddha families and the qualities they project. Each image and color with its symbolic intent relates meaningfully to the whole.

Tibetan Symbols (left to right): Lotus, jewel, wheel, sword, vajra
