The prayer wheels

Tibetan prayer wheels (called the Mani wheels by Tibetans) are devices for spreading spiritual blessings and well-being. Rolls of thin paper, imprinted with many copies of mantra (prayer) OM MANI PADME HUM printed in an ancient Indian script or in Tibetan script are wound around an axel in a protective container, and spun around and around. Typically, larger decorative versions of the syllables of the mantra are also carved on the outside cover of the wheel. Tibetan Buddhist believe that saying this mantra out loud or silently to oneself invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion. Tibetan Buddhist mani wheels are always spun clockwise. Just touching and turning a prayer wheel brings incredible purification and accumulates unbelievable merit.
