From Buddhist centers and temples, to monasteries and stupas, prayer wheels are turned clockwise to release prayers and mantras into the heavens.
This temple style prayer wheel is framed inside of an intricately hand carved wooden base, and can be mounted either indoors or in a protected outdoor area.
It also looks great placed on a shelf or altar space!
The outside of the wheel features the 8 Auspicious symbols along with 4 lines of the mantra of compassion, Om Mani Padme Hum, written in Sanskrit script. This mantra invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion.
