Tibetan prayer wheels (Mani wheels) are devices for spreading spiritual blessings and well-being.
This Tibetan Handheld Prayer Wheel is decorated with the six-syllable mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum. It has a wooden handle and a brass weighted cord.
Inside the prayer wheels are scrolls wound around an axle containing Om Mani Padme Hum mantra printed in Sanskrit script.
Turning the wheel clockwise activates the prayer wheel, generating tremendous merits and distributing exponential blessings and positive wishes for all beings.
It is suggested that one recites the six-syllable mantra while spinning the prayer wheel.
It is believed that as the wheel is spun, the practitioner is gaining wisdom and destroying negative karma, and therefore progressing along the spiritual path.
