Tibetan Prayer Flags are created with the ethics of compassion, patience, and wisdom. They span vast distances along remote Himalayan mountain tops and give the sacred and intangible a physical form. In the west they connect us to the earth and the divine world within, toward our enlightenment. Their colors represent the four natural elements as well as the cardinal directions. Tibetan Prayer Flags sway in the wind and the natural fading of their colors means that your prayers have been successfully carried out by the sun and the breeze. The mantra found on these flags, “Om Mani Padme Hum” recited in meditation, is believed to cure us of pride, jealousy, ignorance, greed and aggression.
