Lungta – Enhancing our Vitality with Prayer Flags

with Khandro Tsering Wangmo Khymsar  

Lungta, or “wind-horse,” is an intangible, inner quality or power that influences our general well-being. It is one of the four main concepts related to life force in Yungdrung Bön: La, life essence; Yang, wealth essence; Wangtang, charisma or authentic self; and Lungta, windhorse – the power for things to go our way. When lungta is running high and smooth we are healthy, successful and prosperous. When our lungta is debilitated, low or broken, we are more susceptible to problems and misfortunes.

Fortunately, we can support, boost and even restore our lungta. One of the most effective methods is hanging prayer flags. In this three-day workshop, Khandro Tsering Wangmo Khymsar will share her practical knowledge of raising windhorse energy with prayer flags. Among the topics covered will be:

  • What is lungta?
  • How to identify when one’s lungta is low or high
  • The different kinds of lungta
  • Simple remedies to support and restore lungta in daily life
  • How prayer flags support lungta
  • When, where and how to hang lungta prayer flags
  • When, where and how to dispose of old prayer flags

There will be opportunities for questions and answers each day.

Live translation available in Korean, Portuguese and Spanish.
