“Being generous, just helping one's relatives and being blameless in one's actions; this is the best good luck.” ~ Buddha
In the Tibetan culture the Horse year is considered the most beneficial of all the animal years. Tibetan Lung Ta or Wind Horse is portrayed with ornate trappings and jewels, adding a touch of opulence. Elegantly depicted in mid-trot, it has symbolic connections to victory, nobility and success. This magnificent animal is synonymous with strength, speed and vitality, with wish fulfilling jewels on its back to symbolize wealth and treasures.
“To attract good fortune, spend a new penny on an old friend, share an old pleasure with a new friend and lift up the heart of a true friend by writing his name on the wings of a dragon.”~ Proverb
Having its origin in the Tibet, Wind Horse has several meanings. On the outer level, the Wind Horse is a mythical creature that combines the speed of the wind and the strength of the horse to carry prayers from earth to the heavens. This is why the Tibetan prayer flag is referred to as the Lung Ta, their word for Wind Horse. Lung Ta is also associated with positive energy, life force and good luck. It is both the vanquisher of evil and a vehicle of enlightenment.
“Only learn to seize good fortune, for good fortune is always here.” ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Many cultures use Horse images to bring success and victory into their career or business. The Cintamani (flaming or wish granting jewel) on the back of the Wind Horse symbolizes a miraculous treasure which can grant the fulfillment of wishes. Hanging prayer flags with the Tibetan Lung Ta Wind Horse will bring you triumph and accelerate the attainment of your goals.
Remember this is considered the most beneficial of all the animal years.
May the Year of the Horse bring the fulfillment of your wishes!
