Beautiful Nepal prayer flags hung at Spectrum promoting peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. Everything right from the colour to the words on the flags has a deeper meaning. Buddhist prayer flags essentially carry our prayers via the wind to get them answered.
Each colour flag represents a meaning. The red, blue, yellow, white and green buddhist prayer flags represent elements like air, fire, water and earth. White symbolises air, red is fire. Green is water, yellow is earth, and blue is wind. They also represent directions – North, South, East, West and Center.
Om- The sacred syllable
Padme – Lotus
Hum – Spirit of enlightenment
This mantra does not have one particular meaning. It’s a combination of values like compassion, ethics, patience, diligence, renunciation and wisdom. It is said that if you recite the mantra during meditation, it can cure pride, jealousy, ignorance, greed and aggression.
The reason why they are put high above the roof is -so that they flutter in the wind. It is said that they emit positive spiritual vibrations and that the prayers are carried by the wind like silent prayers.
Colour fading from the flags is considered auspicious This means that the prayers were carried by the breeze - fading colours are a sign of it.
I love the spiritual world especially when it brings such strong message behind it
