Large Paper Prayer Flag - Five Buddhas
Prayer Flags are used to promote prayers of peace, compassion and wisdom. It is believed that the ‘Windhorse’ or ‘Lung-ta’, often featured in the flag motif, gallops through the heavens carrying this goodwill for the benefit of all beings. Traditional Prayer flags are made using hand-carved woodblocks and water soluble ink on cloth. Paper prayer flags are made with sustainably harvested Lokta paper from Himalayan forests using traditional 2000 year old paper-making techniques.
