Prayer Flags - Handmade In Nepal

The Tibetan word for a horizontal prayer flag is Lung ta, which translates literally as "wind horse."  The prayers of a flag become a permanent part of the universe as the images fade from wind and sun.  Tibetans renew their hopes for the world by continually mounting new flags alongside the old.  For 2018 the following dates are inauspicious to hang flags: March (2018): 21 - April: 1, 13, 19 - May: 13, 16, 18, 29 - June:23 - July: 5, 19, 31 - August: 15, 27 - September: 10, 22 - October: 4, 19, 31 - November: 14, 26 - December: 11, 23 - January (2019): 3, 6, 19, 30.
