The combination of sterling silver and turquoise, with raised silver Om Mani Padme Hum mantra, make this a beautiful way to carry a prayer wheel with you. About 1.3" long, it comes with a silver loop for easy threading, so you can wear it around your neck, hang in your car, etc.
The Prayer Wheel is a Buddhist ritual instrument embossed with the mantra (Sacred Syllables) :Om Mani Padme Hum:, a prayer for protection. Our Prayer Wheel Pendant (which contains actual printed prayers) is a reminder for the silent prayers woven into our daily activities.
Large Prayer Wheels are trypically installed around temples and stupas and set in motion by the pilgrims. Smaller Prayer Wheels are carried and turned while praying.
These turquoise hand held style prayer wheel pendants are hand-made in Nepal by skilled Himalayan artisans, so each set is unique. A fair trade item.
