MEDITATIONS: Forgiveness

Creating a work of art is not a harmless thing. .. Art is extraordinarily powerful and important. It challenges peoples lives. So there are two choices: either you create black magic to turn people’s heads, or you create some kind of basic sanity. Those are the two possibilities, so you should be very, very careful.

- Chogyam Trungpa

Prayer flags are traditionally used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. Tibetans believe the prayers and mantras will be blown by the wind to spread the good will and compassion into all pervading space.
