Prayer Flags

Requests for Practices, Offering for Tsog or Butterlamps and Prayer Flags

 

All offerings help to fulfill the two accumulations, that of increasing merit and wisdom, and purifying all obscurations.

 

It is possible to dedicate a practice, a ceremony, a tsog or butterlamps to remove obstacles or increase blessings for yourself or others.  You simply make a one-time or regular contribution along with a written dedication and we will read your dedication aloud in the course of the ceremony or at the time of lighting the butterlamps. If you attend the practice you may do this before we start, but it is also possible to send your dedication and offering without being present.

 

About Prayer Flags

Tibetans call prayer flags Thar-cho.  Mantra or prayers are written on a flag and the five elements read these and carry the blessings to all beings in the three thousand fold universe.

 

We hang prayer flags on auspicious days. Each time the wind touches and flaps the flags, merit is dedicated to all sentient beings, with the aspiration that any being that hears or feels this wind has the blessings of the prayers and mantra.

 

Lama Chimed designed these traditional Tibetan prayer flags, which are available for purchasing, thus giving the opportunity to all, to hang them and to spread the blessings. The prayer flags can be hung here or in another place. We can also dispatch them via the postal service. If so, please send us an e-mail.
