Tibetan prayer wheels are devices for spreading spiritual blessings and well being. They are believed to accumulate wisdom and merit (good karma) and to purify negativities (bad karma). This handheld Tibetan Buddhist prayer wheel is made of copper and brass with a sprinkling of beautiful stones. The handle is made of pure wood. The outside of the wheel has the ‘Om Mani Padme Hum’ mantra detailed on it. The same Buddhist mantra is written on a roll of paper, which is kept inside the wheel. Om Mani Padme Hum is a prayer for compassion and for the happiness of all living beings. 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. The prayer wheel is also believed to provide protection from negative influences, balance chakras, and attract positive energy. It will make a wonderful addition to your meditation space.
Product Dimensions: 10.5″ tall; the wheel is 3.5″ in diameter
