This handmade wooden prayer wheel combines the dramatic colors and designs found in traditional Tibetan decorations and the authentic Avalokitesvara, or Buddha of Compassion, mantra. Reciting this mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum, or spinning a prayer wheel with this mantra is believed to purify oneself and bring compassion and love. The prayer is printed in Tibetan on the roll that spins and releases the prayer. This prayer wheel makes a wonderful desk, mantle or bookshelf addition. Spin the prayer wheel by spinning the top knob in a clockwise direction and begin to purify and invite compassion into the world!
