Our Tibetan Buddhist hand-held prayer wheel, sometimes referred to as a Mani wheel, is 12 inches long and is constructed of copper, brass and wood. The Buddhist mantra Om Mane Padme Om is written around the outside of prayer wheel. The handle serves as axis around which the cylinder can revolve, being set in motion by a small weight which is attached to it by a chain. The cylinder contains a paper roll on which Buddhist texts are printed.
