Description Contents
The prayer wheel plays an important role in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Devout believers regard the very act of turning the prayer wheel as the activity of enlightened beings, and regard the mantras written inside the wheel as the Compassion Buddha's holy speech. Prayer wheel practice is said to be of immeasurable benefit to all suffering beings, and sincere use of the prayer wheel can increase compassion, purify negativity, and remove barriers to enlightenment. Yet even Tibetan texts on prayer wheel practice are difficult to find.
Wheel of Great Compassion equips Western readers with everything necessary to understand this unique and powerful practice, including:
* The history of prayer wheel practice and its ancient lineage
* The symbolism of the prayer wheeel and its role in Tibetan rituals
* An explanation of the myriad benefits of prayer wheel practice
* The proper method for constructing and filling a prayer wheel
* A detailed description of the visualization practices and mantras used when turning the wheel.
