Prayer wheels have been designed and used in the East since time immemorial in pursuit of truth, consciousness, and bliss. The presence of this handheld sacred spindle, inlaid with Buddhist chants, will add an invincible calm around wherever you put it. Meant to be turned clockwise in an attempt to signify the turning of the dharmic cycle (which Buddha taught), the sonorous spinning will soothe you like no other ritual implement. It is said that turning the prayer wheel will incur as much spiritual merit as the recitation of the inlaid chants.
Topped off with the endemic eternity knot, one of the eight symbols of existential wellness according to Tibetan Buddhism (ashtamangal), the weave is such as to render the knot both beginning-less and end-less, repeatedly looped together, and intricately intertwined, leading to a breathtakingly beautiful lattice. The significance of this symbol lies in its similarity to the illusion-ridden cycle of dharm and the truth-consciousness-bliss one experiences when one transcends the same.
