Wherever he visits, the Dalai Lama is welcomed  by strings of prayer flags. The Tibetan word for these colorful cloths is "lung ta," which literally translates into "wind horse." In the video below, Ron Marks, the dean of the Tulane School of Social Work, talks about the significance of prayer flags and what they can mean to a community that displays them. Marks has conducted a graduate-level course in northern India for more than 10 years. It was at his invitation that the Dalai Lama is visiting New Orleans to speak at the Tulane Unified Commencement Ceremony on Saturday (May 18).
