Found at monasteries and along pilgrimage routes throughout Tibet, prayer wheels are part of the meditative practice of Buddhism. They are commonly covered with the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum. Inside each drum is a thick paper scroll, densely printed with hundreds or sometimes thousands of the sacred mantra. Turning the wheel clockwise, while reflecting on these prayers scatters their good intentions to the universe and brings peace and good karma to the practitioner.
According to the Tibetan culture, it is said that all teachings of the Buddha are contained in this mantra. It is said that when one understands the spell, it only experiences enlightenment.
