Prayer wheels are large Buddhist constructions often found at temples that consist of a cylindrical wheel that has been placed upon a spindle so that it can easily be spun around. Inside the wheel is a scroll onto which mantras, usually Om Mani Padme Hum, have been written hundreds, thousands or in the case of very large wheels, millions of times. According to the Buddhist tradition, the temple visitors and monks rotating these prayer wheels will gain much the same meritorious effect as reciting the mantras orally.
These charming little prayer wheel pendants each have a small scroll inside with Om Mani Padme Hum written on inside. They serve as an excellent reminder of the teachings of Buddha.
Pendant supplied without cord.
