For centuries, Tibetans have hung prayer flags on mountain passes, temples, stupas and other important sacred places. Each flag is printed with mantras, auspicious symbols, aspiration prayers and images of deities and Buddhas. The passage of air across the flags both activates the prayers and carries their vibration into the world, thereby promoting peace, compassion, fearlessness, wisdom and prosperity. It is believed that as the images on the flags fade with the action of sun, wind and rain, the prayers are absorbed into the universe. Hanging prayer flags is a great means for accumulating merit and helping to dispel obstacles in one's life. The power and benefits of raising prayer flags should not be underestimated and you should regard them as a cause for liberation!

For maximum benefit, prayer flags should be hung in the West; next best is North and then South. Flags should not be hung in the East.

Prayer flags are printed on material dyed in the traditional five colours representing the five elements (yellow: earth; green: air and wind; red: fire; white: water; blue: space) and should be arranged in this order along the string.

All of our prayer flags are hand dyed and printed using traditional woodblocks. Our flags have been checked thoroughly to make sure that the mantras are printed correctly and the Tibetan script is accurate.

All flags are printed on strong and durable polyester unless specified otherwise. They are also strung on braided nylon cord for extra strength and longevity.
