We have been looking for this kind of handmade paper prayer flags for a while and my trip to Nepal this time i found the manufacturer. We are carrying various products from this family. This listing is for a set of mini handmade paper prayer flags from Nepal. There are 25 paper prayer flags and each flag measures 3 inches by 3 inches and handmade in Kathmandu Nepal. On this set there are OM MANI PADME HUM designs and has five different colors. It is great for inside your house or shrine or gift. They are all strung together as you see in the picture and well made. The script is the mantra of Buddha of compassion Avalokteshvara and it means HAIL TO THE JEWEL IN THE LOTUS. Mani means jewel and padma means lotus. Prayer flags are usually to hang indoor and out on roof top or top of mountains that the wind blows and releases prayers into the universe and create a warm environment. In Tibet, Nepal or India, you can see prayer flags on the hill top or on the temple or stupas. Nepali Lokta Paper Nepal Lokta paper is prepared with the age old techniques of traditional Nepalease artistry. It is made from the bark of the Daphne Cannabina bush, which grows naturally in the Himalayas at altitudes of 6500 to 9500 feet. After harvesting, the Daphne Cannabina bush naturally regenerates, reaching full maturity again in six to seven years. The paper and the process of making it are completely natural.
