Gyaltsen Tsenpo Prayer Flag

Gyaltsen Tsenpo Prayer Flag


These cotton linen prayer flags are handmade and blessed by Tibetan Buddhist nuns living in India. When you purchase these you are directly supporting them.

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.

This is a common prayer flag, especially at New Year, symbolizing new ventures and beginnings. Gyaltsen Tsenpo prayer flags are printed with sutras bestowed by Lord Buddha to Indra, king of the gods to overcome his enemies and achieve victory.
