Prayer flags are traditionally used in Tibet, Bhutan and across the Himalayan region as a special way to make prayers of well-being, goodness, temporal and spiritual growth and peace for oneself and the world.
This bundle of prayer flags has an image of Avalokiteshvara (the Buddha of Compassion) in the center, surrounded by many mantras and prayers of compassion (such as the famous Six Syllable Mani Mantra of om mani padme hung). In particular, it has the famous sadhana of Avalokiteshvara composed by the Tibetan mahasiddha, Thangtong Gyelpo (15th century).
Our prayer flags are made by a sincere, Tibetan, Drikung dharma-practicing mother-and-daughters team living in Kathmandu, Nepal. The sides of the flags have been hemmed, which helps the flag last longer against the elements, preventing fraying.
