1.Lung ta

Lung-Ta is a Tibetan word meaning wind(Lung) horse(Ta). Lungta is a mythical animal who carries all intentions and prayers to the universe. As the wind blows the prayers fly out to the universe and are sent out to be fulfilled. Lungtas are square or rectangular shaped and are connected along their top edges by a long string, and are commonly hung on a diagnal line from high to low places, such as trees, stupas, or mountains.

About Prayer Flags

Prayer Flags are auspicious flags that contain images of deities, mantras and prayers, which are traditionally believed to bring happiness, peace, prosperity, good fortune, health and victory over the obstacles. Prayer Flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength and wisdom. Prayers inscribed on prayer flags protect from destructive evils and obstacles toward the flag planter and all sentient being. Tibetans believe that the prayers and mantras will be blown upwards as an offering to their deities and will bring fortune, happiness and good health to all who hang them.

Love the prayer flags -

The prayer flags are the quality I expected (color, material) and we're thrilled to have them. They arrived quicker than expected. We originally ordered small and quickly got an email letting us know that they were out of small and did we want medium. We agreed to the medium. If you want medium sized this would be a 5 star review but I deducted one star because we really really wanted the smaller ones.
