Prayer wheels are large Buddhist constructions often found at temples that consist of a cylindrical wheel that has been placed upon a spindle so that it can easily be spun around. Inside the wheel is a scroll onto which mantras, usually Om Mani Padme Hum, have been written hundreds, thousands or in the case of very large wheels, millions of times. According to the Buddhist tradition, the temple visitors and monks rotating these prayer wheels will gain much the same meritorious effect as reciting the mantras orally.
These small sized, metal prayer wheels have keyrings and are designed to be a very transportable and handy version of the larger conventional wheels.
