  •   istanyutung Texts on the Prayer flags :

    Early in the 7th Century the Tibetan King Song Tsen Gampo sent his minister to India to learn Sanskrit and writing. The Tibetan script we see today the texts on prayer flags can be broadly categorized as Mantra, Sutra and Prayers.

    A MANTRA is a power-laden syllable or series of syllables or sounds with the capacity of influencing certain energy dimensions. The vibration of mantra can control the Invisible energies and Occult forces that govern existence. Continuous repetition of mantras is practiced as a form of meditation in many Buddhist schools. Mantras are almost always in Sanskrit – the ancient language of Hinduism and Buddhism. They range in length from a single “seedsyllable” like OM to long mantras such as the “Hundred-syllable mantra of Vajrasattva.”
    They are not really translatable; their inner meanings are beyond words.
    Probably the oldest Buddhist mantra and still the most widespread among Tibetans is the six-syllable mantra of Avalokiteshvara, the bodhisattva of compassion i.e OM MANI PADME HUM! Printed on prayer flags the mantra sends blessings of compassion to the all Six Worldly Realms, aka the Samsara.

    Sutras are prose texts based on the discourses directly derived from Shakyamuni Buddha, the historical Buddha who taught in India 2500 years ago. Many sutras have long, medium and short versions. Prayer flags use the medium or short versions. One short form of sutra often seen on prayer flag is the dharani. Closely related to mantras, Dharanis contain magical formulas comprised of syllables with symbolic content. They can convey the essence of a teaching or a particular state of mind. The Victory Banner (Gyaltsen Semo) contains many lines of Dharani, Praise to the 21 Taras, the Long Life Flag and the White Umbrella are also examples of prayer flags using Sutras.
    For purposes of categorization all the other text seen on prayer flags can fall under the general term “prayers.” These would include supplications, aspirations and good wishes written by various masters throughout the history of Mahayana Buddhism. | Lamayuru, Leh Ladakh. | 1mon
