For centuries Tibetans have placed prayer flags around their homes, at sacred sites, near monasteries, and on mountain passes, as an offering to the enlightened ones and as a prayer for the benefit of all beings. It is believed that these prayers are carried into the wind, the blessings of the Buddha's teachings are evoked, auspicious circumstance is created, and obstacles of all kinds are diverted.
Our flags bear the image of the "windhorse," symbolizing upliftedness and confidence, surrounded by sacred prayers and mantras of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.
Each flag is block-printed by hand by monks, as they have been for centuries, at the site of one of the great holy places in the Himalayas.
