Namaste and Welcome!
The Prayer Wheel plays a very important role in Tibetan Buddhist Tradition; Brought to our world by one of the most renowned historical Buddhist Teachers Nagarjuna. The Prayer Wheel has been used for over a One Thousand Years by Buddhists and people from all walks of life, including many of the great Yogis of Tibet like Marpa and Milarepa.
The Prayer Wheel lineage was brought to Tibet by the renowned eight century Indian Buddhist teacher Padmasambhava, and later practiced by the great Indian Buddhist masters Tilopa and Naropa. Naropa's disciple Marpa later renewed the lineage in Tibet and passed it on to Tibet's most well known yogi, Milarepa.
Since that time the Prayer Wheel has been passed on through a continuous lineage of enlightened teachers, among these His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the renowned Second Karmapa, Karma Pakshi, whose important works are quoted by most subsequent writers on the subject.
