Prayer wheel or Mani wheel (Tibetan: མ་ནི་ཆོས་འཁོར་)

A prayer wheel is a cylindrical wheel (Tibetan: འཁོར་, Wylie: khor) on a spindle made from metal, wood, stone, leather or coarse cotton. Traditionally, most commonly used mantra "Om Mani Padme Hum" is written in Sanskrit on the outside of the wheel. At the core of the cylinder is a "Life Tree" often made of wood or metal with certain mantras written on or wrapped around it. Many thousands (or in the case of larger prayer wheels, millions) of mantras are then wrapped around this life tree. The Mantra Om Mani Padme Hum is most commonly used, but other mantras may be used as well.
