Tibetan prayer wheel 12” H.
Lovely prayer wheel, the revolution symbolizes the repetition of a prayer. A charming addition to your meditation space.
A prayer wheel is a cylindrical "wheel" (Tibetan: འཁོར་; Wylie: 'khor) on a spindle made from metal, wood, stone, leather, or coarse cotton.
Traditionally, the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum is written in Sanskrit on the outside of the wheel. Also sometimes depicted are Dakinis, Protectors and very often the 8 auspicious symbols Ashtamangala.
According to the Tibetan Buddhist tradition based on the lineage texts regarding prayer wheels, spinning such a wheel will have much the same meritorious effect as orally reciting the prayers.
