The fluttering of Tibetan prayer flags can be seen all across Nepal and Tibet high up into the Himalayas even on top of Sagamartha "Mount Everest" the tallest mountain in the world. Tibetan prayer flags are colourful cotton, handmade flags in the colours white, blue, yellow, green and red with images of deities and mantra prayers to the Gods and divine cosmos.
Lung is Tibetan for “Wind“ and Ta is “Horse“ which was a mythical creature from pre Buddhist times combined with the speed of the wind. The strength of the horse helps carry the prayers of the devotees from Earth to Heaven. Lungta also means fortune, blessings or good luck. As the flags blow in the winds it sends the prayers upwards as a offering to the deities. These flags are hung over entrances to a home, in the garden or on mountain tops.
The flags colours represent bliss, happiness, good health, peace, joy, compassion, peace, and wisdom, and abundance.
