Send healing thoughts into the world with each turn of this sterling silver prayer wheel necklace. The drum is decorated with the sacred mantra Om Mani Padme Hum, the traditional Tibetan Buddhist chant for healing and compassion. Inside, a paper scroll printed with hundreds of the same mantra multiplies the effect of sending your prayers.
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, in the direction of the sun, while reflecting on these prayers scatters their good intentions to the universe and brings peace and good karma to the practitioner.
I bought the set, the necklace and earrings. I really love them. The workmanship is excellent and I get a special calming feeling when I'm able to turn the prayer wheel and repeat the mantra. I wish I could personally thank the artist myself. I've never been disappointed in what I've purchased from Petalura.
Had expected it to be with a longer chain, from the picture; also the Prayer wheel was very cheap looking. Sorry, but I put off spending that kind of money for a long time, but finally gave in. It was a disappointment.
