An extremely useful and inspiring publication, the Wheel of Great Compassion is the first book to provide Western readers with a complete understanding of the prayer wheel. The use of the Mani Korlo is an ancient and powerful practice that has long been popular with Buddhists throughout Tibet and Mongolia. The prayer wheel is recognised as a very skillful means to bless the environment, promote healing, increase compassion, and assist practitioners on their journeys to enlightenment.
This book offers a clear description of prayer wheel practice, its meaning and benefits, and its role as an essential ritual and symbol of Tibetan Buddhism. It contains a general introduction to the prayer wheel, photographs and illustrations, six commentaries by Tibetan lamas (including Lama Zopa Rinpoche), and instructions for both prayer wheel construction and proper use. This is a must for anyone seriously interested in enhancing their dharma practice.
