The history of Tibetan Prayer Flag can be dated back to thousands of years in India and to the Bon tradition of pre-Buddhist Tibet according to some lamas. Prayer Flags are inscribed with auspicious symbols, invocations, prayers and mantras, which are said to bring happiness, long life and prosperity to the flag planter and those in the vicinity. For centuries, Tibetan Buddhists have planted these flags outside their homes or spiritual places, for the wind to carry the beneficent vibrations across the countryside. There are 5 colors of prayer flags, representing the 5 basic elements: yellow-earth, green-water, red-fire, white-air, and blue-space. Balancing these elements externally brings harmony to the environment. Balancing the elements internally brings health to the body and the mind.
