Tibetan prayer wheels, also called Mani wheels by the Tibetans, are devices for spreading spiritual blessings and well-being. Traditionally, rolls of thin paper, imprinted with many copies of the mantra (prayer), Om Mani Padme Hum, printed in an ancient Indian script or in Tibetan script, are wound around an axle in a protective container and spun around and around. Typically, larger decorative versions of the syllables of the mantra are also carved on the outside cover of the wheel.
Tibetan Buddhists believe that saying this mantra, out loud or silently to oneself, invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion.
