Large Prayer Wheel

“Simply touching a prayer wheel brings great purification of negative karma. Turning a prayer wheel containing 100 million OM MANI PADME HUM mantras accumulates the same merit as reciting that many mantras.” -Lama Zopa Rinpoche

Prayer Wheel

In early May 2015, De-Tong Ling launched a campaign to raise funds for the 1.5 diameter x 1.8 metre high prayer wheel that will be installed between the Stupa and lake.

To date, the campaign has been wonderfully supported with $43,766 raised but we still need a further $13,534 to complete the project.

The prayer wheel was constructed from copper in Kathmandu. It arrived at the centre in January 2016 and is in the process of being assembled and filled with mantras. The beautiful house to accommodate it is also near completion. It has been constructed on site using locally sourced stone.

Part of the natural lighting of the wheel house will be from eight stained glass windows (offered by a student) depicting the Eight Auspicious Symbols.

Once the wheel is installed, all the pieces of advice on holy objects given by Rinpoche will be completed.
