Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

Prayer wheels are Tibetan Buddhist praying instruments, with the mantra engraved: Om Mani Padme Hum, Avalokitesvara’s mantra. Prayers are also printed on a paper scroll rolled inside the metal cylinder. Very powerful.

 

Prayer wheels are fixed to the walls of monasteries, grouped around stupas, found in private homes, carried by pilgrims, or – in this case – placed on tables or desks and used during time of prayer.

 

Superbly handcrafted by local artisans in the Himalayas of Nepal.

 

Although not particularly old, this prayer wheel is finely crafted.
