Happy Holi !!

One gets to see these prayer flags all through Ladakh.

Traditionally, prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom.By hanging flags in high places the "Wind Horse" will carry the blessings depicted on the flags to all beings. As wind passes over the surface of the flags which are sensitive to the slightest movement of the wind, the air is purified and sanctified by the Mantras.

 

One was compelled to get those prayer flags as souvenirs and hang them in the balcony :-)

 

Wish You All Colorfull ,Happy and Safe Holi !!
