In Tibetan Prayer Flags, Diane Barker describes the origin and significance of this deeply spiritual and aesthetic expression of the wish for world harmony and presents an array of her own stunning color photographs of the flags in use. For example, there's a picture of the Yangtze River gorge, with prayer flags hanging over it. Hanging a flag over water benefits all that passes underneath. Flags hung outside the Dalai Lama's residence in Dharmasala include green, an astrologically auspicious color for his Holiness.
The book comes with a box that also includes a string of fifteen hand-painted lung-ta--authentic Tibetan prayer flags. Specially designed with help from Dru-Gu Choegyal Rinpoche and manufactured in Nepal, the flags display rich imagery in five traditional colors and are ready to be hung in your home or garden. Now everyone can practice this ancient and sacred ritual, expressing support for the Tibetan people and spreading wishes of peace out into the world.
This is a concise introduction to Tibetan history and Buddhist culture, and the use of prayer flags to promote peace, harmony, and happiness. It contains a string of fifteen authentic Tibetan prayer flags ready for hanging.
