Prayer wheel - colourful

Cast iron, colourfully painted prayer mill from Nepal. A prayer wheel (in Tibet also called a mani mill) is a wheel or roller that contains prayers or mantras, or is decorated with them on the outside. In the Khumbu region, a special form is the so-called mani stones, in which mantras are carved into stone slabs. In Tibetan Buddhism, prayer wheels are turned to combine physical activity with spiritual content. A fundamental aim of this action and basic method of Vajrayana is to integrate all aspects of the reality of life, even the simplest physical actions such as turning a prayer wheel, into the path to enlightenment. Various levels of spiritual view can be attached to this externally quite simple form of spiritual practice. When carried out with the right motivation, the turning of prayer wheels serves, according to Buddhist conviction, to accumulate good karma. A simple motivation of this practice is to wish, while turning the prayer wheel, that all mantras in the wheel will work for the benefit of the sentient beings, eliminate their suffering and bring them happiness. A further motivation of this practice is to visualize (mentally project) during the rotation of the prayer wheel that all mantras contained in it radiate light to all sentient beings during the rotation, eliminating their suffering and dissolving bad karma. An advanced practice of rotating a prayer wheel, which approaches the highest view of Buddhism, is to concentrate on the fact that the rotating person, the action of rotating, and the rotating prayer wheel, including the mantras and prayers contained therein, are inseparable from a nature that is non-dual in its origin. From the practice of turning the prayer wheel over a long period of time, the adjective `prayer wheel-like` is derived, which describes the monotonous, tedious repetition of a thing. Also common in Buddhism is the prayer chain Mala
