Tibetan prayer flags are colourful rectangular fabrics commonly used in Tibetan Buddhism. They are believed to bring peace, compassion and good fortune to those who hang them. The flags are usually inscribed with prayers, mantras and symbols and are hung in high places such as mountain passes or rooftops where the wind can carry the blessings written on the flags to the surrounding area. You can also hang the flags in your garden, on your balcony or indoors. Hanging the flags is considered a good deed that can promote the spiritual progress of the individual. Furthermore, the flags are seen as a way to spread positivity and good wishes to others.
Since traditional Tibetan prayer flags are handmade using traditional woodblock printing techniques, the quality of the print visibility and clarity on flags may vary.
