Prayer Flags of the Day

These ones are really nice. I wonder what they mean. Do they bring you good luck, long life, happiness? Can anyone translate these for me? Of all the ones I’ve seen around town these definitely seem to be the coolest.

  • I don’t think these are real prayer flags–I think they’re just awesome happy flags (which is as good a prayer as any!) The way the real ones work, whenever wind blows through them it supposedly “Says” the prayer for you. Tibetan and Nepalese buddhism have all sorts of cool things like that–they have wheels that you spin to say a prayer, too…
