Handmade in Nepal from brass, wood and copper, prayer wheels are filled with a scroll on which is printed the mantra "Om Mani Padme Hum", a prayer to the Compassionate Buddha written many thousand times. Turn the prayer wheel once in a clockwise direction, and thousands of prayers are sent to heaven on your behalf, offering you protection from evil and salvation.
