It usually bears the mantra "OM MANI PADME HUM (ཨོཾ་མ་ཎི་པ་དྨེ་ཧཱུྃ།)”, the six syllables mantra of the Buddha of compassion, Avalokitesvara. The mantra is printed or carved on the wheel exterior and printed mantra scroll on paper is kept inside. According to Tibetan Buddhist belief, it is said that each turn of the cylinder generates as much merit as the reading of the sutra of the formula enclosed within the prayer wheel. This belief derives from the Buddhist belief in the power of sound and the formulas to which deities are subject. For many Buddhists, the prayer wheel also represents the Wheel of the Law (or Dharma) set in motion by the Buddha. The prayer wheel is also useful for illiterate members of the lay Buddhist community, since they can "read" the prayers by turning the wheel. Prayer wheels come in many sizes: they may be small and attached to a stick, and spun around by hand; medium-sized and set up at monasteries or temples; or very large and continuously spun by a water mill. Prayer wheels at monasteries and temples are located at the gates of the property, and devotees spin the wheels before passing through the gates. Om Mani Padme Hum The mantra is in the Sanskrit phonetic. It is the prayer of compassion for the well-being of all sentient beings. Praying for self has its own benefit, but praying for all sentient beings that are in need of the same prayer as oneself, multiplies the benefit as many times as there are sentient beings. This mantra is explained in many different ways. But the basic motivation is always the same when we say, “Om Mani Padme Hum (ཨོཾ་མ་ཎི་པ་དྨེ་ཧཱུྃ།)”; we wish happiness to all living beings. Prayer Wheel History The prayer wheel lineage was brought to Tibet by the renowned eight century Indian Buddhist teacher Padmasambhava, and later practiced by the great Indian tantric Buddhist masters Tilopa and Naropa. Naropa’s disciple Marpa later renewed the lineage in Tibet and passed it on to Tibet’s most well-known yogi, Milarepa. Since that time the Prayer Wheel has been passed on through a continuous lineage of enlightened teachers, among these the great Kagyu master Karma Pagshi, whose important works are quoted by most subsequent writers on the subject. Prayer wheels are usually filled with the mantra of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of great compassion. OM MANI PADME HUM (ཨོཾ་མ་ཎི་པ་དྨེ་ཧཱུྃ།). So much of the spiritual power of the prayer wheel derives from the power of this sacred mantra that by connecting with the energy of the prayer wheel one is connecting with an outer manifestation of unlimited enlightened compassion, and is awakening one’s own highest potential - one’s Buddha nature. The Prayer wheel is also a truly excellent way to help harmonize and Feng Shui your environment, increasing the positive energy in your home or workplace. A number of Tibetan commentaries state that having a prayer wheel in a building makes that place become like the Potala - the pure land of the Buddha. People that own prayer wheels all agree that having one near them in their home feels wonderful. The prayer wheel’s beauty and energy really does have a very clear and positive effect. 8 Auspicious Buddhist SymbolsThe eight Auspicious Symbols of Vajrayana Buddhism are:(i) Endless knot(ii) Lotus flower(iii) Dhvaja(iv) Dharmachakra (fly-whisk in Nepali Buddhism)(v) Bumpa(vi) Golden Fish(vii) Parasol(viii) ConchThese energetic signatures, point to qualities of enlightened mindstream, and they are the investiture that ornaments these enlightened "qualities".
