Large Prayer Flags

 

big Buddhist prayer flags

 

These are part of more than 100 big prayer flags put up for the funeral puja. More than a dozen people worked more than a week on the project. The poles are of bamboo cut in the forest. A few kernals of rice from the monastery alter is dropped into each hole before the flag is set. I tried to help a bit with this, but the flags are heavy, and in any event, hard manual labor with my hands has never really been my thing.
