Take us spinning

Take us spinning, originally uploaded by G2clicks.

Hear this, according to the Tibetan Buddhism, spinning such a wheel will have much the same meritorious effect as orally reciting the prayers.

Interestingly, Wikipedia says "the idea of spinning mantras relates to numerous Tantric practices whereby the Tantric practitioner visualizes mantras revolving around the his heart and other chakras of the body. Therefore, prayer wheels are a visual aid for developing one's capacity for these types of Tantric visualizations." SHOCKER!!! I never knew those wheels had such a deep meaning.

Think about this the next time you go to a monastery!!!
