Prayer Flags Sacred Mantra


Category: Tag:
This silk-screened set of small sized prayer flags feature the sacred mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum, often translated as “Hail to the Jewel in the Lotus”.
This is a string of 12 flags, each one is a 4″ square of fabric.
The informative packaging describes the history and meaning of the Tibetan prayer flag tradition, the meaning and use of Om Mani prayer flags, and the story behind the Tibetan group that produces the 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.
Sales support several community schools managed by the producers in Nepal.
The origin of printing prayer flags in Tibet is said to date back to the 11th century. As the wind blows the printed prayers are carried off to the universe while rains carry the prayers to the earth. The hanging of prayer flags is thought to promote good fortune and to dispel danger. In Tibet, they are called Lung-ta or Windhorse, named for often featured mystical animal who carries the prayers to the universe on the spiritual winds. Tibetan prayer flags are printed with sacred mantras and the names of deities; once they fade they should be burned to respectfully dispose of them. The five colors of the flags represent the harmony of five elements in balance; blue=sky and space, white=air and wind, red=fire, green=water and yellow=earth.
