Traditionally, today is spent either at home or visiting monasteries to make offerings or perform religious practice. Tomorrow begins a time of visiting friends and sharing with them all of the special food for the holiday. The 1st month of the new year is especially good for activities that strengthen and develop the positive forces that support health, success and harmony. Hanging prayer flags is one such activity.
Nine Ways is offering special Yungdrung Bön prayer flags. For more information about the benefit of prayer flags or to place an order, see previous post: https://ravencypresswood.com/2020/02/15/the-immeasurable-benefit-of-raising-prayer-flags/
