Selfmade Prayer Flags for H.H. Karmapa

During the Stupa Inauguration in Kamalashila Institute on June 1st we will offer self-made prayer flags to H.H. 17th Karmapa.

Please help us bring together more than 600 flags made by people all over the world!

How can I contribute?

  1. Share your wishes, blessings, drawings and words of Wisdom on a square fabric of natural quality (cotton, linen etc).
  2. Please use a white or unbleached fabric. The color white symbolizes Wisdom in Tibetan Buddhism. (We also collect colored flags, but we ask you to make a flag on white fabric).
  3. The flag size should be 20 x 20 cm.
  4. You can use pencils, paint, ink or any other drawing material you like.
  5. When finished you can send your Prayer flag to:
  • Kamalashila Institute
    : Wisdom Prayer flags
    Kirchstraße 22
    56729, Langenfeld
>> When you attend the event, you can also bring your flag(s) with to Nürburgring.

With the Prayer flags we will send our blessings to the Winds of Wisdom, honour 2014 - Year of the Windhorse - and raise Good Fortune for the Stupa. Please share this message to help us to reach as many people as possible.

Thank You! Namasté
