However, it is good to remember that according to His Holiness the Dalai Lama and many other great lamas, the day when we hang prayer flags is much less important than the motivation we have while doing it. The most crucial thing is to have pure intentions and express good wishes.
The Tibetan word for a horizontal prayer flag is Lung ta, which translates literally as "wind horse." A Wind Horse is symbolic of the mind and the wind is its vehicle, therefore it can be ridden upon. This means that we all have the possibility of controlling the mind and can guide it towards any direction at any speed we wish. That is why the prayers of a flag become a permanent part of the universe as the images fade from wind and sun. Happiness and health are brought to those who hang these prayer flags, and Tibetans renew their hopes for the world by continually mounting new flags alongside the old.
