This is a three-in-one tabletop or wall-mounted prayer wheel, made of brass and copper. The wheels are mounted on a hand-carved frame made out of rosewood. The outside of each wheel has the ‘Om Mani Padme Hum’ mantra engraved all-around. The same Buddhist mantra is written on a roll of paper which is kept inside each wheel. The paper roll rotates with each rotation of the wheel. It is thought that each revolution of the wheel activates, in a manner akin to an actual recitation, the prayer inside. In simple terms, Om Mani Padme Hum is a prayer for compassion and for the happiness of all living beings. The prayer wheel is also believed to provide protection from negative influences. This prayer wheel makes for a unique, beautiful and spiritual gift for a loved one. Or, you may purchase it to fill your own personal space with positive energy!
