Prayer Flags


A painting of layers of prayer flags outside my backdoor.

About Prayer Flags from Daelyn, Columbus Aternative High School, Intern at Global Gifts Blog:

"Tibetan Prayer Flags are colorful, rectangular cloths that hung outside and used to promote compassion, peace, strength, and wisdom. They are also used to carry prayers and mantras through the wind.

There are two different kinds of prayer flags: Lung-ta, meaning wind horse, and Dar Cho, where “Dar” means to increase fortune, wealth, health and life and “Cho” means all sentient beings

Lung-ta flags are hung horizontally in sets of five. The five flags are in order according to their color and meaning:

Blue symbolizes the sky and space
White symbolizes the air and wind
Red symbolizes fire
Green symbolizes water
Yellow symbolizes Earth

Health and harmony are produced through the balance and order of the flags. All over the world, but especially in South Asia, prayer flags are found in ridges, mountain passes, between trees, rocks and also on top of monasteries, stupas, and temples."
