You may not want to believe this, but if you never try then you'll never know. If you start right now, and order up a single prayer flag -- one of the King Gesar flags as seen here is a very good choice -- and if you fly this flag with the pure aspiration that it benefit all beings, then everything in your life will change for the better.
Flying one of these flags is like throwing a pebble into a still pool of water --- rings of benefit widen out continuously. One thing leads to another, you know? To throw that pebble, you have to open up your tight hand... you have to engage in a kind of generosity. You have to let your heart free.
These flags are personally blessed by the living, direct manifestation of Padmasambhava, are only rarely available, are made in limited, yearly editions, and will not be made forever. They are fashioned of 200 denier, marine grade nylon, sewn for storm conditions, and have real brass grommets. The inks include special substances, and the printing is done on consecrated grounds, on auspicious "ten million" days such as Lha Bab Duchen, and so forth, with the constant recitation of mantras.
Do everybody a favor, and order one by clicking here. Start where you are, right now --- right this minute. Start with what is in front of you.
