Spinning prayer wheels is a ubiquitous practice that for us has come to typify Tibetan Buddhism.
  • Prayers and Mantras written on paper fill the insides of the wheels.
  • Spinning the wheels gathers merit to the pilgrim. It also reflects on the Dharma, the never-ending cycle of life --- birth, life, death, re-birth...

OH MANI PADME HUM is the Mantra that is usually spun in the wheel.
