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.
