The mantra read as follows "A protector for those without protection; A guide for those who have lost their way; A ship for those with oceans to cross; A bridge for those with rivers to cross; A sanctuary for those in danger; A lamp for those without light; A place of refuge for those who lack shelter". The banner measures approximately 8 1/2" wide x 48" tall and is made of 50% cotton and 50% polyester and comes with wooden dowels and attached string for display.
