The Tibetan word for prayer flags is Lung-ta, which literally means "Wind Horse". The central image is that of a horse bearing three flaming jewels on its back, representing the Tibetan Buddhist trinity. This is the triple refuge of Buddha, who is the enlightened one, Dharma, the path of Buddhist teachings & Sangha, the Buddhist monastic community. The Wind Horse is both the subduer of evil & the vehicle of enlightenment.
