      The wind horse


When we visit any holly place or temple of Tibetan Buddhism, we can see the prayer flag (Darchor) which consists of 5 colors. Each of these colors symbolizes as following, blue is sky, white is wind, red is fire, green is water, and yellow is earth.

Especially the flag drawn with picture of horse is called “Lung ta”,which means people wishing that Buddhism will be spread so far on the wind.
