In Tibetan Tradition, flags containing sacred images and phrases are flown by the thousands, offering with each gust of wind, prayers for the peace and happiness of all beings. The Lama Foundation has expanded this tradition to embrace and celebrate the universality of religious and spiritual traditions from all over the world.
Hung outdoors, the prayers are offered to and released on the winds. Indoors, they create a sacred space of remembrance. The flags are also used to adorn altars, wrap sacred objects and have other uses.
