Description
 
The arrangement of colors found in these Tibetan Prayer Flags represents each of the five basic elements. The banner can be hung in an office, room or patio to help generate natural, positive energy. This is a wonderful gift item for house blessings.

You will receive 1 string of 10 Leaves (Penants) in the style shown.

These prayer flags were made in Tibet and carry the blessings, the spirit and majesty of the Himalayas.

Each of the individual 4x3 inch leaves is infused with one word of the Om Mani Padme Hum mantra.
In this tradition, the colors represent, Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Aether/Space .
The banner stretches approximately 2.5 feet across.

How to use your prayer flags:

Traditional prayer flags are made of cotton and each of the leaves would have unfinished edges.

Ceremonially, prayer flags are hung in the morning. When hung with the blessing of your good intentions and prayers, over time the threads of the banner will be carried into the wind and fall to the Earth, blessing the environment they are carried into.

The earth will absorb the bio-degradable threads of the prayer flags in some way. Sometimes the birds or other animals will even carry them off to build their nests!

Please know that some flags are woven very sturdily. Some flags will remain looking brand new for up to a year if they are located in an area outdoors that does not experience moderate or severe weather. Having the threads fall to the Earth can be symbolic, however, it is not an indication of whether prayers are being heard or answered. In fact, if your prayer flags do not unravel, this is nothing to worry about and may mean that the plan for you to is to have Faith guide you from within, instead of relying on external visual cues.

Typically, prayer flags will weather over time under the sun and from exposure to the elements. It is recommended to replace them semi-annually, for example, at either the equinox or solstice time. For Tibetan Buddhism practitioners, they are ceremonially replaced each year on the Tibetan New Year.
