I've long-loved the beauty and magic of Tibetan prayer flags - the messages and symbols on the flags are said to be carried by the wind, distributing prayers of peace and love to all. Not being a practicing Buddhist (although I deeply appreciate the teachings), I've never felt comfortable flying traditional prayer flags. However, recently inspired by this post and this one, I've been thinking about tapping into the power of this ancient Buddhist philosophy by creating some prayer flags of my own.
A little more research garnered more ideas on how to make you own prayer flags and a lot more inspiration, as seen here and here. I even found a fun prayer flag project for kids.
Hmmm... still on a treasure mapping high, I'm seeing a prayer flag gathering in my future... perhaps the next new moon, mamas?
