Traditional Prayer Flags Pre-printed in Kathmandu, Nepal, and imported by a Fair Trade company. Symbolizing compassion and hope, these fluttery little squares of good intention are called Lung ta in Tibet (“wind horse” in English). Traditionally block-printed and strung outdoors, wind horses carry their messages skyward when breezes stir As flags weather and fade, prayers become a permanent part of the universe. A wonderful way for children (or anyone) to give form to their best intentions and good wishes.
The finished flag strand has traditional prayers for compassion surrounding an image of the Tibetan goddess Green Tara. All flags have the same imprint. 10 cotton flags (6" square) on a 6-foot strand.
