Prayer wheels have a long history within the Tibetan Buddhist and Bon traditions. Traditionally they contain rolls of paper hand printed with mantras. Spinning a prayer wheel with pure intention is thought to increase compassion, purify negativity, remove barriers to enlightenment and brings benefit to all beings within the six realms. They are spun clockwise in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition and counter-clockwise in the Bon tradition.

"To benefit sentient beings, the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas manifest in the prayer wheel to purify all our negative karma and obscurations, and to cause us to actualize the realizations of the path to enlightenment. All the beings (not only the people but also animals and insects) in the area where the prayer wheel is built are saved from rebirth in the lower realms. They receive a deva or human body, or are born in a pure land of Buddha. If you have a mani prayer wheel in your house, your house is the same as the Potala, the pure land of the Compassion Buddha. If you have a prayer wheel next to you when you die, you don't need powa. Having the prayer wheel itself becomes a method to transfer your consciousness to a pure land. Simply thinking of a prayer wheel helps a dying person to shoot the consciousness up the central channel and out through the crown to reincarnate in the pure land of Amithaba or the Compassion Buddha" ~ Lama Zopa Rinpoche ~

What is the Seven Line Prayer?

We are now offering the finest natural wood prayer wheels, finished to a standard that is way beyond what is currently available in the marketplace. Each piece is custom made and in our opinion, they are works of art in themselves. They are lovingly made by a husband and wife team from natural woods, and each mantra on the outside of the drum is applied by hand. Our handheld wheels take more than one week to complete. This includes several hours at the lathe, one week of staining and protecting the wood, adding the beautiful artwork, filling the drum with mantras and choosing the right counterweight to help the wheel rotate smoothly. .
