The flags gained religious significance in Bon tradition and gradually the design of the flags changed. According to Bon teachings, when mantras wrapped in five colored silk and placed high in the mountains, it would provide good fortune and bring prosperity to the person who sees it. The five color flags should be in this order. Hoisting of Dra-lha (a deity who helps in overcoming obstacles and enemies) promotes welfare of all sentient beings and flourishes dharma. There are some quotes in ancient text to show the protective power of the prayer flags… A great battle ensued between the Gods and Asuras (demi gods) because of a wish-fulfilling tree. The gods the face of buddawere enjoying the fruits of the tree, which grew in the valley of Mt. Meru, and Asuras claimed that the fruits belonged to them only as the tree was rooted in their area and thus the war began. Lord Indra plead Vajrapani for help and he told Indra to invite brothers of Dra-lha and said they would help. Nine weapons and nine deities then appeared from the great ocean and by worshiping them Indra achieved victory over the Asura. Another such story to show the protective power of the flag is of Lord Indra seeking Lord Buddha’s help after a bad defeat by demi gods (asuras). Lord Buddha was in the 33rd realm of the gods, seated on a flat stone. Indra came and prostrated before Him. Indra explained that he and other gods of the 33rd realm had suffered defeat at the hands of Vemchitra (king of demi gods) and asked Buddha what he should do. Lord Buddha advised him to memorize Gyaltsen tsemo mantras and told him that Buddha himself had recited them and preached to many decibels. He added that since the time he learned the mantras he could not remember even a moment when he felt fear or terror. So, He told Indra to carry this mantra into the battle and thus victory was achieved.
