Tibetan prayer wheels (Mani wheels) are devices for spreading spiritual blessings and well being.
This Tibetan Wall Hanging Prayer Wheel features the brass wheel with six-syllable mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum, hand crafted in Sanskrit script and a wooden frame. The prayer on the wheel is beautifully carved and decorated with inlays.
Inside the prayer wheels are scrolls wound around an axle containing Om Mani Padme Hum mantra printed in Tibetan script or 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.
