Tibetan prayer flags are inscribed with auspicious symbols, invocations, prayers, and mantras. The Tibetan word for prayer flag is Dar Cho. “Dar” means to increase life, fortune, health and wealth. “Cho” means all sentient beings. Prayer flags, coupled with the natural energy of wind, quietly harmonise the environment bringing you and ones in your vicinity happiness, good fortune and a prosperity.
In Tibet, the tradition of hanging flags began more than 2000 years ago. Tibetan people use prayer flags to honour the nature gods of Bon. They used colours of the five elements: blue for sky or space; white for air or clouds; red for fire; green for water and yellow for earth. Balancing the elements internally brings health to the body and the mind. They hung the flags outside their homes, over mountain passes and rivers and other places of spiritual practice for the wind to carry the beneficent vibrations across the countryside.
