the Tibetan Prayer Flag on Biri Sacred Mountain Nyingtri
tibet

Prayer Flags are inscribed with auspicious symbols, invocations, prayers, and mantras. Tibetan Buddhists for centuries have planted these flags outside their homes and places of spiritual practice for the wind to carry the beneficent vibrations across the countryside. Prayer flags are said to bring happiness, long life and prosperity to the flag planter and those in the vicinity.

There are two kinds of Prayer flags (sutra streamer): the standing type and the hanging type. Sutra streamers of the standing type are generally called sutra flags.  The highest one could be tens of meters. On the top of the flagpole there are decorations such as the gilded Treasure Vase. Five-Colored Canopy, extails and so on.The hanging type sutra streamers, which are hanged on the long ropes, are commonest in the places of sacred mountains and saint lakes. The longest one could be hundreds of meters. Every family hangs this kind of colorful sutra steamers on the top of door or the roof of house.
