Owned and used by Tibetans of every social rank, prayer wheels are devices for crating prayers by hand power. Rolls of written prayers or mantras are sealed in the cylinder; with each revolution, the prayers are "sent out". Cylinders containing prayers are also set up on roofs or in streams, with blades to turn them by wind or water powers. Giant wheels are placed in niches in the walls surrounding temples, to be turned by passing pilgrims and monks.

The Tibetan terms for prayer wheels can be translated as "hand wheels" or "dharma wheels" but most commonly they are called, in Tibetan, "mani wheels" because of their usual association with Avalokiteshvara, Bodhisattva of Compassion and his mantra (the "Six Syllables"), "om mani padme hum". Mani, "jewel", and padme, "lotus", are Avalokiteshvara's emblems, hence the mantra should be understood as "hail the jewel-lotus". It is this mantra, repeated "endlessly", which is typically written or printed on paper and would tightly inside the cylinder of a prayer wheel.

The benefits of spinning a wheel, while maintaining the proper visualizations and compassionate mind, are many. "Just being struck by a wind which has touched such a prayer wheel cleanses a great number of sins and obstacles to enlightenment and is said to implant the seed of liberation."
