Unlike typical affixed prayer wheels, this ornate Handheld Prayer Wheel with 8 Auspicious Symbols is able to be carried and used anywhere and any time that its blessings are needed. 

Buddhist prayer wheels are cylindrical objects, typically made of wood and/ or metal, with prayers or mantras inscribed on them. Oftentimes, small rolls of paper with mantras written on them are also placed inside the wheels. They are a significant element of worship in Tibetan Buddhism, where they are known as "mani wheels". Tibetans believe that by spinning the wheel, the inscribed prayer is spread out into the world. This helps to bring the user good karma while spreading the positive energies and effects of the inscribed mantra to the world.

The 8 auspicious symbols in Buddhism are offerings that were made to the Buddha after he attained enlightenment. The symbols are: The Throne, The Parasol, The Vase, The Conch, Two Golden Fish, The Eternal Knot, The Lotus Flower, and The Dharma Wheel. This Tibetan prayer wheel also features the compassion mantra inscribed across it.
