This is the Tibetan rituals in the Mengbi Mountain, Sichuan, China. They pray and the lungta is tossed into the air with wind blowing so that the prayer flag could fly high and spread wide. Lungta, usually in the form of colorful paper or flags, have block-printed prayers, mantras, animals and other auspicious symbols imprinted on them. As the lungta is scattered by the winds, blessings upon blessings are shared with all sentient beings.

Location: Mengbi Mountain, Sichuan, China
