These unique mini prayer wheels are a hollow metal cylinder that is beautifully embossed and mounted on a rod and containing a tightly wound scroll printed with a mantra.
They come in many sizes and are used by Buddhists in Tibet and Nepal where they are held by pilgrims. Tibetan Buddhist belief suggests that spinning a prayer wheel is just as powerful as reciting sacred text aloud and many see it as representing the Wheel of Law (or Dharma).
On this stunning wheel is “Om, mani, padme, hum”; a Buddhist prayer sung by Born-in-Lotus Buddha (Guru Padmasambhava) during his search for nirvana.“Om, mani, padme, hum” is considered the source of all things. When chanting “om” one should try to become one with Buddha. “Mani” represents treasures that will be attracted. “Padme” means lotus and resembles purity and “hum” means that we must rely on divine energy.
