Each set of prayer flags has five colors representing the different elements: blue for sky, white for clouds, red for space, green for water, and yellow for earth. The symbols and mantras on prayer flags are sacred, therefore prayer flags should be treated with respect. They should not be placed on the ground. Old prayer flags should be burned.

Size: Each flag is 7 x 8 ½ inches (18 cm x 21.5 cm); set of 5 flags is approximately 39 inches long (114 cm) from the beginning of the first flag to outside edge of last. The string is longer.

Padmasambhava, the renowned saint of the eighth century, was a central figure in shaping Buddhism’s history in Tibet. Revered as the second Buddha, Guru Rinpoche (Precious Guru) conquered the local deities and demons of Tibet and bound them by oath to become guardians of Buddhism.
