In the history of Tibetan prayer flags is said that the Buddha recited a prayer and it was printed in the battle flags between two people. The peace was soon restored between them. The tradition of offering prayer flags in the wind was introduced into Tibet in the eighth by a disciple of the Buddha century.
Traditionally, the flags are raised outdoors so that the prayers are taken and “recited” by the wind over long distances.
they lived together wandering in the world
traveling, not knowing how to share
i think to myself
how things pass by me unnoticed
they sit in front of me …beggin me something
with blurry eyes, confused
i prefer to listen
the sound that comes from the little flags hanging
they are singing
they are praying
as the wind comes through them
A Tibetan Tradition……
Love, love, peace, peace
