Prayer Flags

Prayer Flags
Who was the Dalai Lama praying to?

I have been reading one of his books where he states that he prays. But my understanding of Buddhism is that there is no God or any other supernatural beings…

Likewise all the prayer flags and prayer wheels in Tibet etc…

Tibetan Buddhism They have more Peaceful and Wrathful Deities than you can shake a stick at I would imagine He is spoilt for choice
Not all books that are accredited to Him are actually wrote by Him
He could be “Praying” for a new Apple Mac or maybe the latest Rolex
The Prayer Wheels are not strictly Prayers Well not the ones I have come across They are filled with mantra but not always I purchased one of these some years ago Just to have a peep I got curious as to how many mantras were on this roll and unfolded it The mantras were only on the outside Inside was newspaper something like the Kathmandu Times and the bit I got was advertising a computer course held in the UK I could imagine they had a large intake that year
I’m not a real fan of His as You may see
