A very fine table top wooden prayer wheel crafted from Mahogany. Each piece is made for us by special commission and in our opinion, they are sacred works of art in themselves. They are lovingly made by a husband and wife team from natural woods and the mantras on the outside of the drum are applied by hand. Each wheel can take more than one week to complete. This includes several hours at the lathe, one week of staining and protecting the wood, adding the beautiful artwork and filling the drum with mantras.
The drum contains an astonishing quantity of mantras on microfilm. Traditional wheels would have contained a roll of mantras, wood block printed on paper and so therefore the number of mantras would have been limited to thousands. Rolls of paper can often make a wheel bulky and heavy and so microfilm is an amazing alternative. Our Chenrezig wheels contain 100 million mantras on microfilm, which greatly increases the merit of each rotation. They are lightweight and spin effortlessly due to the unique inclusion of the highest quality sealed bearings. Your wheel will never need oiling and the bearings will never get damaged. It also means your wheel runs in complete silence, with no distracting noise when you are in the midst of your meditation practice.
The microfilm in our 'mani wheels' contains the mantra of Chenrezig, which has been reproduced from the original mantra written by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
A prayer wheel is an investment in your Dharma practice and these wheels will surely be cherished by those who have the good fortune to own one. Over the years the wood will mellow and develop its own unique usage patina. They are truly a very skillful way of accumulating merit in the often difficult times we live in.
Important: The wheels have been sealed permanently to give lasting protection to the microfilm. The wheels should not be opened.
The makers of our wheels have had the direct blessing of Ven. Tsoknyi Rinpoche and Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche to undertake this work.
