Prayer Wheels and Monks



Wherever you go in Tibet there are generally two things you can count on seeing, Prayer wheels and Monks. The idea behind a prayer wheel is that on them and/or inside them they contain prayers or mantra. Each time the wheels spins one revoltution the prayer is 'read'.

I am not exactly sure what it is but, I am not as happy as I was hoping I would be with the final outcome of this video. Perhaps, becuase it probably should have been two seperate ideas rather than one longer one. I really like the first half of it though. Perhaps I should have worked harder on this one. Enjoy the first half anyway ;)

Your videos pull me in, and hold me mesmerized the entire time. This entry is no exception. You can feel the spirituality of the Tibetan people emenating from this video. Awesome!

This is some great stuff, bro. What are you going to do when you run out of Tibet footage? Where will you go next?

Graham--I am currently burning a DVD for a Tibetan Buddhist Lama that I tutor (his computer access is minimal and I think he would love these!) and came across this post...The prayer wheel contains a prayer for peace to all beings. They often contain many prayers inside the wheel, and it is thought that by spinning the wheel you are releasing the prayer to the universe.
