Use these prayer flags around the house, in your garden or hang them up in nature. These prayer flags contain a Buddhist deity on each color of the flag accompanied by a precious mantra. The mantras will be carried into the world by the wind, this is what the Tibetans say. The name in Tibetan is "lung tra" which means "windhorse".
Traditionally, in the Tibetan culture, each color symbolizes one element of the 5 elements. They balance all elements around the area they are displayed.
Usually, during the full moon, they are put up and left in their place until they have faded.
