Here, the image of Guru Rinpoche at the centre of the prayer flag is surrounded by the much loved supplication, ‘Barché Lamsel’, ‘The Prayer to Guru Rinpoche to Dispel All Obstacles on the Path’. This is the outer practice prayer from Lamé Tukdrup Barché Kunsel, ‘The Heart Practice of the Lama for Averting All Obstacles on the Path,’ which the great treasure-finder, Terchen Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa revealed together with Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo.

It is said that when prayer flags flap in the wind, the spiritual powers of the sacred images and scriptures are carried by the wind to balance the elements, and engender enrichment and supportive opportunities. Hanging prayer flags is considered an act of merit that increases positive opportunities.

Each of the five alternating colours of the flags represent a primary element: sky (blue), air (white), fire (red), water (green), and earth (yellow). Together in the right order, a balance of these elements is achieved.

Generally speaking, Mondays and Fridays are the most effective days to hang your prayer flags. Ideally, the flags should be hung in the morning. When the flags are faded and ready to be replaced, customarily they are carefully taken down and burned or otherwise respectfully disposed of. For a joyful start to the New Year, Tibetan “Losar” (New Year) is considered the most auspicious time to replace faded or tattered prayer flags.

Set of 15 multicoloured flags. Each flag measures 41x50cm. Complete length, including string is 7 meters.
