In Tibetan culture prayer flags are hung to promote good fortune and dispel danger. Along with traditional prayers printed in Tibetan script for peace, happiness and well-being, images include protective animals such as Windhorse, Snow Lion, Dragon, Garuda and Tiger, as well as important deities such as Buddha and Tara. The five colors represent the five elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, and Infinite Space. These mystic prayer flags, with the five mystical animals, are made by the Tibetan Nuns Project in Dharamsala, India, home of the Dalai Lama. The packaging includes the history and meaning of the Tibetan prayer flag tradition, the meaning and use of these prayer flags, and the story behind the Tibetan humanitarian group that produces these flags. These flags are handmade by Tibetans in a traditional manner. They fade gracefully when hung outdoors. Because the symbols and prayers are considered sacred, please treat them respectfully. Prayer garland is an easy way to brighten your home or your altar. It invites an element of powerful symbolism which can encourage you to be mindful of the sacredness connected to the images portrayed in your garland.
