The prayer circuit

Om mani padme hum

Prayer wheels at the Namgyal Monastery in Dharamshala receive a near constant stream of attention.

The wheels, typically containing a scroll covered with repetitions of the Tibetan Buddhist mantra Om Mani Padme Hum, are turned as one walks by. One revolution of the wheel is considered equivalent to reciting the mantra as many times it’s scrawled on paper inside.
