Lama Zopa Rinpoche's prayer for the prayer wheel at Dorje Chang Institute, New Zealand

Turning a prayer wheel containing 100 million om mani padme hum mantras accumulates the same merit as reciting that many mantras. Anyone with a disease such as AIDS or cancer can use the prayer wheel for healing. For example, sick people could come to centers with prayer wheels for several hours every day to turn the wheel and do healing visualizations.

7 FPMT International Office Department Name An easy way to collect merit Rinpoche has said that as one doesn’t need two hands to talk on the phone, so one hand can be turning a prayer wheel, in this way purifying yourself and all beings. Beams emit from the prayer wheel and purify yourself and all sentient beings of the six realms. They achieve all the realizations, especially great loving kindness, compassion and bodhicitta; the whole path, the five wisdoms etc. Lama Zopa Rinpoche has always travels with at least one prayer wheel (currently three) and spends some time most days turning the prayer wheel.

8 FPMT International Office Department Name “If you have a prayer wheel in your house, your house is the same as the Potala, the pure land of the Compassion Buddha. If you have a prayer wheel next to you when you die, you don't need po-wa. Having the prayer wheel itself becomes a method to transfer your consciousness to a pure land. Simply touching a prayer wheel brings great purification of negative karmas and obscurations.” Lama Zopa Rinpoche Kirti Tsenshab Rinpoche turning silver prayer wheel that Lama Zopa Rinpoche always travelled with
