Tibetan Buddhist Symbols
Tibetan Buddhist prayer flags have been used in Tibetan Buddhist
spiritual practice for centuries and have prayers and mantras for
luck, happiness, prosperity and longevity using the auspicious
symbols of Tibetan Buddhism. They benefit the dharma practitioner
and all beings in the vicinity where the wind blows their benificent
High Quality Tibetan Buddhist Prayer Flags
Prayer Flags are inscribed with auspicious symbols, invocations, prayers,
and mantras. Tibetan Buddhists for centuries have planted these flags
outside their homes and places of spiritual practice for the wind to carry
the beneficent vibrations across the countryside. Prayer flags are said to
bring happiness, long life and prosperity to the flag planter and those in
the vicinity. Dharma prints bear traditional Buddhist symbols, protectors
and enlightened beings. As the Buddhist spiritual approach is nontheistic, the elements of Tantric iconography do not stand for external
beings, but represent aspects of enlightened mind i.e. compassion,
perfect action, fearlessness, etc. Displayed with respect, Dharma prints
impart a feeling of harmony and bring to mind the precious teachings.
All the prints shown on this page, down to the Karmpapa Dream Flag,
were drawn by Radiant Heart Studio's founder, Timothy Clark between 1977 and 2000.
They are screen printed on high quality cotton cloth with non-toxic
inks. Sonam Wangdu and his wife, Tsering, Tibetans living in Boise
Idaho, do the printing in their home studio.
We offer these works of art in the less expensive unhemmed cloth
print (which looks just fine) and in prints with 2" double-folded cloth
borders (which look even better).
The prints are suitable to be hung indoors or out using “Blu-Tack”
(pressure sensitive adhesive) or thumb tacks.
Traditional Prayer Flags
The Tibetan prayer flags in this category are screen printed with nontoxic waterproof inks by Tibetans in our Boise, Idaho studio. The prints
are very detailed, clear and accurate. The cloth is high quality 100%
cotton purchased directly from fabric mills in Maryland. Most of the
designs below are available individually on white cloth or in sets of 5
colors.We also offer nicely finished prints on white fabric with 2"
double-folded colored cloth borders. The English versions of the Large
Wind Horse and the Praise to the 21 Taras are nearly identical in size
and images to the Tibetan versions only the text is different. All of the
prayer flags in this section of the website are in Tibetan. See the
“English Translated Prayer Flags” section if you are interested in
