Prayer flags in Stakna
The Indus valley has been during centuries very well know with traders between Asia and the middle east and even as far as Europe.
In this secluded region of the Himalayas, Tibetan Buddhism found a nest to flourish and spread the words of the Lord Buddha.
The prayer flags are widely spread in Buddhist region. Printed with wooden blocks, the prayers come off the fabrics with the help of the wind, water and sun, taking the good vibration to fill the universe. Once the all space will be filled with prayers that will benefit all sentient beings, there will be no more space for bad and evil energy.
