Prayers, accompanied by the plying of prayer-wheels are very popular among Tibetans. All spare time, during day and night, is devoted to this practise, and the deeply religious people tell their beads, and mutter the mystic six syllables - om ma-ni pad-me Hum! "Om" the jewel in the lotus, Hum!" the sentence which gains them their goal, the glorious heaven of eternal bliss, the paradise of the fabulous Buddha of boundless Light Amitabha.

Instead of a cylindrical shape, the present object has a rounded body. The handle of the wheel is made from wood which has been proportionately and smoothly carved. The base of the interior central shaft, on which the wrapped prayer rests, has small holes around it. The closed base has an embossed double vajra design. It is surrounded by a lotus bud or a jewel. The upper and lower portion of the body is embossed with the sacred syllables om, ma, ni pad me hum in Lantsa letters around it and in between the letters auspicious symbols and three corals have been set. The handle of the wheel has been set on the center of the double Vajra. It says that whoever twirls the wheel wishes to have a clear voice and to have the eight bodhisattvas with him. The tradition of twirling the wheel is very popular among the followers of the Northern Buddhism.

The present specimen of the object has been finely executed.

As ever, brilliant price and service.
Howard, UK.
The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
