Om Mani Padme Hum - the most common written and spoken Buddhist Mantra - meaning: the Jewel of the Lotus Flower. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama describes the meaning of Om Mani Padme Hum in these profound words: "It is very good to recite the mantra Om mani padme hum but while you are doing it you should be thinking on its meaning for the meaning of the six syllables is great and vast... The first: Om, symbolizes the practitioner's impure body, speech, and mind; it also symbolizes the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha." "The path is indicated by the next four syllables. Mani, meaning jewel, symbolizes the factors of method: (the) altruistic intention to become enlightened, compassion, and love." "The two syllables, padme, meaning lotus, symbolize wisdom" "Purity must be achieved by an indivisible unity of method and wisdom, symbolized by the final syllable hum, which indicates indivisibility." "Thus the six syllables, om mani padme hum, mean that in dependence on the practice of a path which is an indivisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech, and mind into the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha."

Tibetan Prayer flags (also known Buddhist Prayer Flags or Wind Horse) are used to carry your prayers and mantras throughout the universe. They are composed of 5 different colored pieces of light cloth each representing the 5 Elements - Left to Right: Blue-sky, White-wind, Red-fire, Green-water, Yellow-earth. The five elements together represent health and harmony. They are often found in high places in the Himalaya Mountains, on Temples, in monasteries and on rooftops in Nepal, India and not so much anymore in Tibet due to the Chinese occupation of Tibet (Free Tibet!!!). They are used to bless the area that they surround and are often used during ceremonies. Prayer flags are used to promote wisdom, compassion, strength and peace. They benefit all the universe. HOW TO HANG A PRAYER FLAG: The best time to hang your Prayer Flag is in the morning when the air is calm and pure. It is important to hang your Prayer Flag starting with the blue from left to right. Blue (sky) should also hang at the highest point. Old prayer flags are sacred and should not touch the ground, they should be treated with respect and burned so the wind can carry the ashes to continue the good will. PRAY for PEACE, LOVE, & HARMONY!!!

SIZE: Approx. 4" X 4.5" Flags on 36" Long Cord. More sizes available. Please search Prayer Flag.
