PRAYER WHEEL INSTALLATION | Brand Library

This prayer wheel is inspired by the spiritual technology of Tibet, where they are commonly referred to as Mani wheels. This is a device for spreading spiritual blessings, positive karma and peace, a clock-wise revolution of which symbolizes the repetition of the prayer (mantra), 'Om Mani Padme Hum'. Tibetan Buddhists believe that saying this mantra, out loud or silently to oneself, invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig (Avalokiteshvara), the Bodhisattva of compassion.
