  • A Prayer flag is a colorful panel of rectangular cloth often found strung along mountain ridges and high peaks in the Himalayas. These are used to bless the surrounding countryside for Peace, Prosperity, Purification, Compassion, Success, Knowledge & Longlife of all sentient beings. Traditionally, prayer flags are hand block printed with Texts (Mantras) and Holy Images. Flags are of five colors blue, white, red, green & yellow. In Buddhist culture, each color has its own significance, which represents five elements of life. Blue color represents SKY; white color represents CLOUD; red color represents FIRE; green color represents PLANTS; yellow color represents EARTH.
  • The Medicine Buddha is depicted in paintings having blue skin. Still, whether shown in a statue or painted form, the right hand is held facing downward with fingers extended toward the ground, palm facing outward toward the viewer, a bowl of herbs rests in the left hand upon the lap. The Tibetans believe that the Buddha was responsible for delivering the knowledge of medicine to the world’s people. In fact, the right hand facing outward signifies “granting a boon” (meaning, giving a blessing) to humanity. This is a common hand gesture amongst both Buddhist and Hindu statues. The Medicine Buddha is venerated by those seeking health and is more commonly found in Nepal and Tibet’s Buddhist temples and communities.
