Global Peace Flags:
Inspire and Promote Peace!
Mini flags in English: a thoughtful, unique
gift. The blue and green colors of this set remind us of Mother Earth and how
precious peace is to her future.
This small size is perfect for so many places. 6 inches by 8 inches. 100%
cotton, hemmed and sewn on a cord. Handmade in Kathmandu, Nepal; includes a card
with prayer flag traditions.
|In the spirit of the
ancient Tibetan Buddhist Prayer Flags hung in the mountains of Tibet and
throughout Nepal, these flags fly on rooftops of homes and monasteries, and from
bridges and trees in the countryside, offering blessings on the wind. This
beautiful tradition dates back to the 10th century.
As the flags wave in the wind, the colors fade, and so the prayers are lifted
and carried around the world. Prayer flags are hung with respect and intention
to celebrate new beginnings: a new relationship, a new home, a birth, a new
journey and always the New Year! They help insure luck and success for new
ventures. When they are tattered and worn out, it is customary to burn them. May
they benefit all beings.
Our flags are respectfully made in Kathmandu, Nepal by Buddhist printmakers. The
flags are made of 100% cotton. We have developed an excellent relationship with
our printers and all of Goddessgift.net flags are fair trade products.
We donate 10% of sales from Global Peace Flags to 'The Hunger Project', in
recognition and support of its outstanding work to improve the lives of girls in
developing countries. Please read more about 'The Hunger Project' online: www.thp.org/girls
Consider what peace means to you personally. Then we suggest you hang these
flags with intention and a spoken aspiration such as: May I be an instrument of
peace" or "May these intentions, wishes, messages be lifted on the
wind to benefit all."
Trust that by taking action for peace whether in word, deed or intention, you
are making a difference in the world, a significant difference. Peace begins
within each of us; the peace ripples outward.
"A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's
the only thing that ever has." Margaret Mead
