    Tibetan Prayer flags. All in a mass. This just is so incredibly moving to me. What a thing it would be to walk amongst them.

    Tibetan Prayer Flags. "Prayer Flags are part of the ancient Buddhist tradition. It is believed that the prayers on the flags are lifted and spread throughout the universe as they flutter in the wind. Everyone who is touched by that wind, is touched by the prayers. The wind spreads the prayers through the world, extending happiness, good will, and peace."
