Medicine Buddha Tibetan Prayer Flags



  • 2 Units in Stock


Medicine Buddha Tibetan Prayer Flags

25 flags. Each flag is approx. 8"w x 9.5"h

Made in Nepal

Tibetan Prayer Flags are hung along rivers and streams, trails, mountain passes, temples and other sacred places. It is believed that the blessing power of the prayers (sutras) printed on them are carried to the heavens to appease the Gods when the flags flutter and blow in the wind.

Prayer Flags are also used to help purify the air. Traditionally Prayer Flags have a combination of mantras, auspicious symbols and special prayers printed on five different colors of cloth.

Blue ~ Water
White ~ Iron
Red ~ Fire
Green ~ Wood
Yellow ~ Earth

As the images fade and the strings from the cloth unravel, the prayers become part of the universe. Hang the new flag right along side of the old. The symbols and mantras on these Prayer Flags are sacred. Please treat them with the utmost respect. Do not place the Prayer Flags on the ground.

When you take the Prayer Flags down, do not use them for anything else, to dispose of them, you need to burn them. We always have Tibetan Prayer Flags hanging in an around our home and shop!
