Prayer wheel crafted from copper and turquoise, embellished with red and golden decoration. Prayer wheels are traditional Buddhist items that contain a small scroll inside printed many times over with a mantra. Devotees believe that turning these wheels has the same meritorious effect as repeating the mantra verbally.

Prayer wheels are large Buddhist constructions often found at temples that consist of a cylindrical wheel that has been placed upon a spindle so that it can easily be spun around. Inside the wheel is a scroll onto which mantras, usually Om Mani Padme Hum, have been written hundreds, thousands or in the case of very large wheels, millions of times. According to the Buddhist tradition, the temple visitors and monks rotating these prayer wheels will gain much the same meritorious effect as reciting the mantras orally.

These Intricate smaller versions are often called Mani wheels (or mani-chos-'khor in Tibetan.) Working on the same meritorious principles as the larger, temple style; they are designed to be portable, practical and beautiful.
