What do the colors on the prayer flag symbolize ?
Traditionally, prayer flags come in sets of five: one in each of five colors. The five colors are arranged from left to right in a specific order: blue, white, red, green, and yellow. The five colors represent the five elements and the Five Pure Lights. Different elements are associated with different colors for specific traditions, purposes and sadhana (spiritual training through which an individual worships a formed image) Blue symbolizes the sky and space, white symbolizes the air and wind, red symbolizes fire, green symbolizes water, and yellow symbolizes earth. According to Traditional Tibetan medicine, health and harmony are produced through the balance of the five elements.
Bodhisattva Prayer For Humanity
May I be a guard for those who need protection,
A guide for those on the path,
A boat, a raft, a bridge for those who wish to cross the flood.
May I be a lamp in the darkness,
A resting place for the weary,
A healing medicine for all who are sick
A vase of plenty, a tree of miracles.
And for the boundless multitudes of living beings
May I bring sustenance and awakening,
Enduring like the earth and sky
Until all beings are freed from sorrow
And all are awakened.

In the Mayan tradition in place of letters they use glyphs. Each letter represented by a glyph is a symbol + together the symbols become art. LOVE spelled out above is the undercurrent of the YAXCHE mission. We encourage you to BE LOVE, TRUST LOVE + SHARE LOVE.
Continue to chase the light + trust in the magic you possess. Believe in yourself...you are most certainly some kind of wonderful + there is nobody else like you.
