The Prayer Wheel

In my search for useful information about the mantra "Om Mani Padme Hum", I came across the website Dharma Haven, which hosts a wealth of information about Tibetan Buddhist culture, practices, wisdom, and healing.

In relation to the sacred mantra, the website introduced the Tibetan prayer wheel very cleverly as "Spiritual Technology from Tibet". What a wonderful description for these simple but effective spiritual tools!

The article is really interesting, since it describes not only the widely familiar hand-held prayer wheel, but also ones driven naturally by wind and running water! The article also elaborates on modern versions of the prayer wheel, such as ones powered by electricity, or digital versions that can be downloaded to a computer.

A truly neat and informative article. Enjoy!

May all beings be happy!
