Achi Chokyi Drolma is an historical manifestation of Vajravarahi who was also the great grandmother of Kyobpa Jikten Sumgon (1143-1217, founder of Drikung Kagyu). In her lifetime she practiced the Nyingma teachings and is said to have ridden her horse into the sky at the end of her life. She is a powerful wisdom-protector who guards and protects all sincere Dharma-practitioners to rely on her. She is also known for her power to confer wealth.
Traditionally, prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. Tibetans believe the prayers and mantras will be blown by the wind to spread the good will and compassion into all pervading space.
This flags are made by a sincere, Tibetan, Drikung mother-and-daughter team who live in Kathmandu, Nepal. The sides of the flags have been hemmed, which helps the flag last longer against the elements, preventing fraying.
