This is an exquisite Green Tara Prayer Wheel showcasing fine and superior workmanship by craftsmen in Tibet. It comprises a metal cylindrical body, with a clear acrylic outer cover. The cylinder is embossed with the Goddess Green Tara mantra “Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha“.
The top of the cylinder is adorned with gold plated Wheel of Life, the center of which has a green jewel-shaped handle to help keep the wheel turning with a slight rotation of the wrist. The top of the wheel is removable to reveal a mantra roll in the protective case. The mantra is a tightly wound scroll made of thin paper, printed with many copies of the prayer ” Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha” the invocation for the protection and blessings of Green Tara. Buddhists believe that each turn of the cylinder generates as much merit as reciting the mantras out loud. Quoting the Venerable Lama Zopa, Rinpoche, “Just touching and turning a prayer wheel brings incredible purification and accumulates unbelievable merit.”
Found all over Tibet and in areas influenced by Tibetan culture, the use of a Tibetan Prayer Wheel or Mani Wheel is an ancient and mystical practice that has long been popular with Buddhists in these areas for its ability to bless the environment, spread spiritual blessings, and well-being, transform bad luck to good luck, promote healing, increase compassion, and assist practitioners on their journeys to enlightenment.
The Goddess Green Tara, probably the most popular deity in the Tibetan pantheon, is the embodiment of all the Buddha’s miraculous enlightened activities, transcending times past, present, and future. Described as the Swift Liberator, she is famed for her speed in answering calls for help. With the swiftness of lightning, she assists in overcoming day-to-day problems, recover from illnesses, and can even save you from untimely death. She also brings success in business and careers. As a mother, she is the ultimate solace for all who seek comfort, help, and solutions to their problems. The path to enlightenment becomes so much smoother when we call on her blessings to guide us along the way.
