Photograph by Michael Yamashita @yamashitaphoto - Prayer flags flutter over the hillside above the Segyagu Meditation Center in Kham, eastern Tibet. Prayer flags are rectangular pieces of cloth, the colors of the rainbow, with scriptures printed on them. Tibetans believe that the prayers will be blown by the wind to spread good will and compassion to all. Commonly hung in high places to carry the blessings to the heavens and round the world. #tibetanplateau #tibetans #Shangrila #Shambala #kham @natgeo.media @natgeo @natgeocreative
