potential prayer flags
There's a big brouhaha and ruckus going on over the QA list over whether it's appropriate for people who are not practicing Buddhists to make/use prayer flags. At least that's the drift I'm getting from the digests.
Really? Pieces of cloth with healing, hopeful words on them? Do we have too much time on our hands?
I have no opinion, but some time ago I offered sets of rectangular pieces of hand dyed damask just for making them. All ten of the sets were gone in three days and I'm willing to bet that not too many of my readers are practicing Buddhists.
If I make up more sets, how big should the pieces be this time and how many pieces in a set?....all these things will determine the price, of course.
All feedback welcome.
