Found all over Tibet and in areas influenced by Tibetan culture, the use of a Tibetan Prayer 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. Buddhists believe that each turn of the cylinder generates as much merit as reciting the mantras out loud. Quoting Lama Zopa Rinpoche, “Just touching and turning a prayer wheel brings incredible purification and accumulates unbelievable merit.”
OM MANI PADME HUM is probably the most famous mantra in Buddhism. It is the six-syllable mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Avalokiteshvara (Tibetan Chenrezig, Chinese Kuan Yin) that helps to achieve perfection in the practice of generosity, pure ethics, tolerance, perseverance, concentration, and wisdom. Mantras are actually powerful scriptures that invoke spiritual guardians or divine help in times of need and are sacred versions of positive affirmations that work wonders in times of uncertainty, danger, and weakness. This mantra has the power to bless the heart and mind of any who come into contact with it. Its special benefit is to uncover and foster the compassion innate in all beings. The mantra OM MANI PADME HUM is easy to recite yet powerful because it contains the essence of the entire teachings of Buddha. Through contact with and, especially, a meditation on this mantra of compassion, positive qualities are developed and so, happiness naturally increases in one’s life.
