SKYWATCH FRIDAY

There is something very relaxing and serene when looking up and seeing pretty flags fluttering in the breeze.  We were walking along the Trail of the Tiger at Norfolk Zoo when I saw them.  There was a sign nearby and it read: 

"Prayer Flags 

Prayer Flags are traditionally believed to bring happiness, peace, prosperity, good fortune, health and victory over obstacles.  Hanging prayer flags promotes peace, compassion, strength and wisdom.



The prayer inscribed on these flags is believed to protect from destructive evils and obstacles.
We wish happiness, peace, prosperity, good fortune, health and victory to all who pass by these flags."  


To all of you out there, I wish the same for you.


My thanks to the SkyWatch Team for hosting this wonderful meme.

  11. :) I have a string of plain prayer flags hanging over out main door. My granddaughter brought them back from India where their school was helping with building and painting of a refugee Tibetan school. They are getting tattered now but I still feel good walking under them.
