When to Hang Prayer Flags

When to Hang Prayer Flags

Rinpoche gave the following advice to a monk who had put up many prayer flags on an inauspicious day.

Dear Simon,
I heard you put the prayer flags up with lots of good energy and I appreciate that, but the day was not a good day to put them up. I did a mo and it also came out bad to put up prayer flags on that day. It is better if you can take them down, as I don’t want to have unnecessary obstacles for the people in the house or the FPMT. These things are a dependent arising and can lead to difficulties arising due to our karma.

When the next good day comes, please put up the prayer flags with the short prayer that I have. I will send it to you.

Much love and prayer...
