We offer the finest natural wooden prayer wheels, finished to a standard that is way beyond what is currently available elsewhere in the marketplace. Each piece is custom made and in our opinion, they are works of art in themselves. They are lovingly made by a husband and wife team from natural woods, and each mantra on the outside of the drum is applied by hand. Our handheld wheels 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, filling the drum with mantras and choosing the right counterweight to help the wheel rotate smoothly. 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. 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 difficult times we live in.
"This great blessing, which arises of its own accord, will dispel all the suffering that will ripen on you, or be experienced by others. When your mind is transformed, others perceptions will simultaneously change, You will accomplish enlightened activity and all noble qualities will be complete within you" ~Guru Rinpoche~

Important: The wheels have been sealed permanently to give lasting protection to the microfilm. They should not be opened!
Each wheel is individually hand crafted and so please allow for differences in the wood grain between wheels.
The makers of our wheels have had the direct blessing of Tsoknyi Rinpoche and Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche to undertake this work.
