Buddhist Prayer Flags

In Buddhist tradition, prayer flags are hung outside homes, sacred spaces, and especially from high places. Flags are inscribed with prayers, mantras, and auspicious symbols, and it is said that as the wind blows through them, peace, compassion, and blessings are carried throughout the land to all those in the vicinity.

As I traveled through a Buddhist area of India a couple years ago, I spent quite a bit of time photographing the prayer flags. These are some images from that trip that I recently came across and have never shown before.
