Tibetan Buddhist Prayer Flags
These authentic Tibetan Buddhist Prayer Flags are manufactured by regional artists in Nepal and draw inspiration from a time-honored practice of sharing happiness, hope and prosperity.
This string of printed cloth prayer flags has an ancient history, going back to the Bon tradition, which existed before Buddhism. It was from a shamanic healing technique used to assist in balancing the primordial forces that the flags' colors stand for.. It is believed that this equilibrium can be attained both internally, giving harmony to the surroundings and wellness to the mind and body. In fact, the Tibetan term for prayer flags is Dar Cho, where "Dar" denotes an improvement in life, prosperity, health, and wealth. "Cho" refers to every sentient being.
Tibetan Buddhist Prayer Flags often come in sets of five. The five hues stand for both the Five Pure Lights and the five elements. For certain customs, uses, and sadhanas, distinct elements are connected to various colors.
- Red for fire
- Green for water
- Yellow for earth
- White for wind
- Blue for aether
Traditional Tibetan medicine holds that a five-element balance is what creates health and harmony.
The prayer flags are not hemmed on purpose since they will naturally fade and fray over time, symbolising the transient nature of everything. When that occurs, it is customary to burn the flags to send their blessings to the heavens before replacing them with fresh flags that represent our updated desires. You could also just layer fresh ones on top of the old ones. The best time to put up new prayer flags is in the morning on sunny, windy days.
Prayer flags can be hung both indoors and outside (the higher the better) to benefit the environment and all beings impacted by the wind as well as to promote harmony and spiritual awareness. Prayer flags should be handled with intention as they contain high-vibrational words and symbols. It's crucial to hang the flags with the right intentions, such as "May all beings benefit," rather to something selfish like "I will benefit."
Fly them somewhere to reflect, remember, rejoice, pray, bless, heal, or protect from negative energies. The entrance to a home is a popular use of Tibetan Buddhist Prayer Flags.
