Prayer wheels at the Kodaiji Temple in Kyoto, made with the Heart Sutra, one of the most popular Buddhist scriptures. According to the Tibetan tradition, to spin a prayer wheel has the same effect as reciting the prayers. at Kodaiji Temple - 高台寺

When innovation meets culture. Nepali version of when life gives you lemon 🍋, make a lemonade and drink. When life gives you an empty tin can, make it a prayer wheel and earn some karma points. #innovation #creativity #culture #lifestyle #justgottadoit #prayerwheels #icatching at Khangsar Manang

Presenting one of my ongoing works on prayer wheels as I continue to deep dive into the theme of tranquility, peace and gratitude. It gives me joy to see how the underpainting I made a few weeks back is evolving as I paint different layers. At this stage my focus is on building lights and shadows less so on lines. Can you see the play of light here? Keep watching this space for final results. #prayerwheels #artist #auction #indianartist #artwork #art #artistsofinstagram #contemporaryart #buddhism #modernart #artgalleries #artiststudio #interiordesign #artcollector #arttherapy #artworkoftheday #imteriordecoratingideas #buddhistpaintings #curator #art #instaart #gratitude #meditation #wallartdecor #emergingartist #artforsale #nacsingapore #seafocus #artstagesingapore

Prayer wheels like these have some enchantments written on/inside them. The idea is, if you give one rotation to the prayer wheel, it is equivalent to chanting that whole verse written on them. You've got to do it a bunch of times and hence, multiple prayer wheels to the rescue. Sweet idea! . . #thepixelatedworld #dslrphotography #dslrofficial #streetphotography #streetactivityteam #urbanphotography #prayerwheels #buddhism #mantra #travelphotography #travelgram #love #himachal #agameoftones #photography_lovers #lightroom #instatraveling #moodygram #instagood #streetexploration #travelblogger #travelling #loseyourself #mountain #religion #natgeo #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #nikon

A prayer wheel is a cylindrical wheel (Tibetan: འཁོར་ལོ།, Wylie: khor lo) on a spindle made from metal, wood, stone, leather or coarse cotton. Traditionally, the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum is written in Newari language of Nepal, on the outside of the wheel.  pc-: @the_wandering_bandholz . . . . . . #incredibleindia #picoftheday #sikkim #monastry #mountainlife #peace #peaceofmind #pray #prayer #prayerwheels #prayerwheelspinning #candid #nikon #nikond3400 #india #northeast #omshantiom #thewanderingtourist #the_wandering_bandholz #tibetanbuddhism at Tholung Monastery North Sikkim

The green, red and blue mini curtains have prayer wheels behind them and those lengths continue around the entire stupa, each to be touched and turned. There are other prayer wheels and a flame in a pool of oil with candles burning behind. This is an exceptionally important place for Buddhists in particular. #prayerwheels #instatravel #travel #kathmandu #nepal #candles #flame at Bouddhanath Temple, Kathmandu Nepal

SPINNING THE WHEELS As I write the title to this travel journal segment, I can't help but hear John Lennon singing: "I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round, I really love to watch them roll. No longer riding on the merry-go-round, I just had to let it go." I decided to take it easy and walk everywhere, without squeezing in a typical sightseeing itinerary in the hotspots of Kathmandu. Instead, I took the backroads in the local neighbourhoods, crossed busy dusty streets and bridges across shallow and murky rivers, walked into shops and the main market where only the locals go to, each time getting spoken to in nepalese. "Oh sorry, I thought you were Nepali!" would be the recurring comment. After a brief standing meal of momos (nepalese) and pani puri (indian) in the food stalls of a supermarket carpark, I resumed my walking pace in the direction of Boudhanath Stupa - the largest tibetan buddhist stupa in Nepal. Instead, I ended up walking past a smaller, more discreet version of it. No entrance fees, no crowds. A few high school kids taking photos, women and men sitting along the edge of the grounds soaking in the early afternoon sun. The iconic Eyes of the Buddha stared back at me from all 4 sides of the top structure. I then spotted an elderly lady going all around the spherical base, spinning the Prayer Wheels, one by one. I decided to do the same, and picked my own Mantra: "I AM LOVE" It has been the purpose since the beginning of this whole journey to the East. To fully embrace, love and forgive myself. For when we realise that Love is what we are all made of, our resistance falls and we allow our true desires and purpose to unfold. .

. . ⭐NAR VILLAGE, NEPAL⭐ The Nar Phu valley is a trek that combines the remote villages of Nar and Phu, with Kang La pass and the unique Himalayan cultures. These valleys are home to Tibetans inhabitants and this region, holding centuries of untouched beauty, hasn't been open to the public for so long. Nobody knew about the existence of human life in this region until some grains were accidentally found on the river. That gave it away and the Nar Phu Valley became known as the 'Hidden Valley'. . . This means that not only will you experience the unspoiled Tibetan culture of this region but this trek has it all, high peaks and passes, remote villages, yaks, monasteries narrow canyons, lovely forests and amazing rock formations. . . In this picture, spinning the prayer wheel during a remembrance ceremony at the 'gomba' (monastery) of a deceased villager seven weeks before. . .

Inside each #PrayerWheel cylinder is a tightly wound roll of printed mantras. Mantras are short Buddhist invocations of several syllables. 🙏 The Mantra Om Mani Padme Hum is most commonly used, but other mantras may be used as well. According to the Tibetan Buddhist tradition based on the lineage texts regarding prayer wheels, spinning such a wheel will have much the same meritorious effect as orally reciting the prayers. 🙏 • • #TravelMuse #Nepal #NepalTravel #VisitNepal #AmazingNepal #TravelNepal #LonelyPlanetNepal #TravelInLuxury #SheIsNotLost #StoriesOfNepal #NepalTourism #DiscoverNepal #PrayerWheels #Swayambhunath at Swayambhunath Temple

- 走在路上的人們,時不時的會用手轉動刻著咒文的「轉經輪」,讓它順著順時針的方向轉動著。 - 這些轉經輪有大有小、有彩色的也有單色的、還有些在轉動時伴隨著淺淺的鈴鐺聲。 - 轉經輪的意義有好多種,其實我也不太了解,只是看著它轉動的樣子,內心有種安定安心的感受,還蠻療癒的!是不是那些不太好的心情,會隨著轉動而離去、而放下。 #Nepal #everestbasecamptrek #ebctrek #hiker #explorer #traveler #adventuretime #wonderlust #traveling #pray #trekkinginnepal #prayer #flag #namchebazar #prayerwheels #peace #尼泊爾 #轉經輪 #五色旗 at Namche Bazar

The Kingdom of Bhutan, land of the thunder dragon. Home to 700k people and sandwiched between India and China. It’s not the cheapest destination to get to in Asia, but it’s a unique nation where gross national happiness takes precedence over other economic measures. Clean, environmentally focused, and culturally rich. A special location indeed. . . . #travel #bhutan #thimphu #prayerwheels #shotoniphone #iphonephotography at Memorial Chorten, Thimphu

These are prayer wheels which I came across the other day. I’ve never seen them before in Japan, so they really caught my attention. Simply spinning the wheels is believed to invite blessings equivalent to reading one volume of the Heart Sutra😮. @japantravelphoto at Hiroshima

It's getting cooler in LA, which got us thinking about our lovely woven Bhutanese scarves and we realized we haven't posted about Bhutan in a minute! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Definitely the most exotic of all our sourcing locations. If you don't know where Bhutan is, you're not alone! It's a mountainous country nestled between Tibet and India. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We love the prayer wheels in temples. They're so beautiful and turning them clockwise is said to have the same effect as prayer flags - they evoke the energy of the mantra when in motion. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 #buddha #dzong #bhutan #buddhism #travelphoto #buddhisttemple #Explore #Wander #Wanderer #Wanderlust #instatravel #prayerwheel #travelgram #spinningwheel #spiritualtravel #bhutanese #temple #photooftheday #travelbhutan #instabhutan #mantra #ommanipadmehum #prayerwheels #mytinyatlas #explorebhutan #bhutanesetextiles #bhutandiaries #happinessisaplace #monastery #bhutanonlineshop 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 𓌲 at Bhutan
