Single strands are on sale for $18 and packs of 5 for $38.
Our custom designed prayer flags are created in Nepal with the same sense of reverence and respect of traditional Tibetan Prayer flags. These flags are believed to bring peace and prosperity to all around them.
The symbolic images and text on each individual flag depict each of Elephant Aid International’s current programs. Each strand includes 24 flags. It is believed that blessings are scattered about by the wind blowing through the flags.
Hanging prayer flags around your home or business can create a feeling of harmony, increase the spiritual atmosphere and bring forth the teachings of enlightenment.
When hanging your prayer flags, it is believed that you will only truly benefit if you do so with sincerity and altruism, wishing benefits and happiness to all beings, as opposed to focusing on how you will be blessed.
The best time to put up new prayer flags is in the morning on sunny, windy days. In Tibet, old prayer flags are replaced with new ones annually on the Tibetan New Year.
Prayer flags should always be treated with respect. The flags should not touch the ground and when it is time to dispose of them, tradition dictates the flags be burned so that the smoke can carry the blessings to heaven.
