Lungta (windhorse) Prayer Flags

Hanging prayer flag is very beneficial, and especially hanging the Lungta (windhorse – meaning powerful or strong horse) prayer flag will bring protection, victory and success, transforming misfortune to happiness.

If you feel you have been struck down with bad luck or bad fortune, it is a good practice to hang Lungta flags. The windhorse bears 3 flaming jewels (specifically ratna) on its back. The Ta is a symbol of speed which brings about transformation of bad fortune into good fortune.

In addition, hanging prayer flags brings benefits to all sentient beings. You are sending blessings into the world and thus removes your obstacles and increases your good luck and good fortune! The Lungta flags will carry the blessings of the flags into all pervading space! You may sign up online to hang blessed Lungta prayer flags at Sakya Tenphel Ling (depend on availability). Please contact office to inquire.
