Tibetan prayer wheels (called Mani wheels by the Tibetans) are devices for spreading spiritual blessings and well being. These devices ar made out of rolls of thin paper, imprinted with many copies of the mantra (prayer) Om Mani Padme Hum, which are printed in an ancient Indian or Tibetan script. The  rolls are wound around an axle in a protective container, and spun around and around to activate the mantra.
