Tibetan prayer wheels (Tib: Mani wheels ) are Prayer devices for spreading spiritual blessings and well being. Rolls of thin paper, imprinted or written with many mantra (prayer) "Om Mani Padme Hum", written in an ancient Newari(Ranjana) script or in Tibetan script, are spin around an axle in a protective container, and spin around and around. Typically, larger decorative versions of the syllables of the mantra are also carved on the outside cover of the wheel.
Tibetan Buddhists believe that saying "Om mani padame hum" mantra, out loud or silently to oneself, invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig Avalokiteshwor, the embodiment of compassion.
