What Does Lungta Mean?
About Lungta Handicraft
In our National Language Dzongkha “Lungta” literally means “Horse of Wind”, (“Lung” means Wind & “Ta” means Horse). Bhutanese usually worship Lungta and hoist prayer flag known as “Lung-Dar” in which one of would find a picture of horses and with Bhutanese texts. The flag is basically hoisted at the place where there is fast blowing winds as such on mountain tops, bridges and over the motor road. The flag is usually hoisted for clearing bad deeds that we have done and for availing clear and better future in our life or even to get success in what ever we do.
