Windhorse Tibetan Prayer Flag

Windhorse Tibetan 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.

These prayer flags are the most common prayer flags and are our best-selling ones. The center of each prayer flag features the traditional strong horse (lungta) bearing three flaming jewels on its back. The horse is a symbol of speed and the transformation of bad fortune to good fortune.

The three flaming jewels symbolize the Buddha, the Dharma (Buddhist teachings), and the Sangha (Buddhist community): the three cornerstones of Tibetan philosophical tradition.
