Set of 10 cotton flags in the traditional 5 colors that feature a central image of Shakyamuni Buddha with a unique collection of prayers surrounding the deity. The main body of prayers on this flag are English translations of Shakyamuni teachings. Several mantras decorate the border of the flags in both Tibetan script and English translation. The final phrase at the bottom of the flag states, "May all beings be happy."
The flag reads, "Do not believe in what you have heard - do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations - do not believe anything because it is rumored and spoken of by many - do not believe merely because the written statement of some old sage is produced - do not believe in conjectures - do not believe merely in the authority of your teachers and elders. After observation and analysis, when it agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it."
Set includes 10 flags that measure approximately 8 1/2 by 9 1/4 inches. Entire strand is about 7 1/2 feet long. Made of 100% cotton in Nepal.
