Guru Rinpoche, also known as Padmasambhava, is the Indian spiritual master who established Vajrayana Buddhism in 8th century Tibet. Embodying the union of wisdom and compassion, his sacred mantra invokes the blessings of liberation and enlightenment.

It is said that when these 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 promote the happiness, liberation, and enlightenment of all sentient beings. Hanging prayer flags is considered an act of merit that increases positive opportunities.

Inscribed with the Guru Rinpoche mantra, and the English phonetics 'om ah hum vajra guru padma siddhi hum'.

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 10 red cotton flags. Each flag measures 20x20cm. Complete length is 2 metres.
