Item Description

 

Prayer flags, inscribed with auspicious symbols, invocations, prayers, and mantras, are planted outside homes and places of spiritual practice for the wind to catch and carry the blessings they hold. They are said to bring happiness, long life and prosperity to the flag planter and those in the vicinity.

Each of these prayer flags from Radiant Heart bears a different design. The 100% cotton flag is printed two times using the woodblock technique. All edges are hemmed and there are cloth ties along one side for attaching the flags to poles. The five flags are in the colors of the Buddha families: blue, white, red, green, yellow. Along the other side there are five multicolored streamers printed with mantras to enhance the power of the prayers. 

The prayers on the prayer flags are as follows:

  • Blue: Health and Longevity - Tsa La Nam Sum
  • White: Purification of Karma -Vajrasattva
  • Red: Wish Fulfilling Prayer- Sampa Lhundrup
  • Green: Compassion Prayer - Praise to the 21 Taras
  • Yellow: Victory over Obstacles - Gyaltsan Semo
Radiant Heart owners Timothy Clark and his wife Tsering Chodon have been in the business of printing and distributing Tibetan prayer flags since 1974. Together, the two of them run the mail order business.
Size: each flag is 3'4"h. x 18"w. with 11" streamers.
