String of Tibetan Prayer Flags is roughly 40 inches long with a total of 10 flags in 5 colors. Each flag is about 3.5″ square. The light weight fabric is suitable for hanging indoors or outdoors, and this size is ideal for hanging in a doorway. Includes the auspicious mantra, “Om Mani Padme Hum.”
Traditionally, prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. The flags do not carry prayers to gods, which is a common misconception; rather, the Tibetans believe the prayers and mantras will be blown by the wind to spread the goodwill and compassion into all pervading space. Therefore, prayer flags are thought to bring benefit to all.
