This is a Om Mani Padme Hum1 designed candle holder. This device serves as a prayer wheel and spins using thermodynamic energy from the candle flame. Om Mani Padme hum is the six syllabled Sanskrit Mantra for compassion. In English, it can be translated to "Praise to the jewel in the lotus" as it is associated with the buddha Avolaketisvara, the bodhisattva of compassion

Since 1980 Karma and Zumki Lama have brought thousands of items made from Tibetan Refugees living in Nepal and India. As Tibetan refugees themselves, they were shocked by how much people in America loved our culture and our craftsmanship. After selling for a while, they decided to bring the wealth back home and support the struggling communities and artisans. We only buy directly from the local artisans and make sure there is no middle man to take away their hard earned money. We make sure to visit Nepal and India at least twice a year and always find new items and artists to work with. Over the years we have developed strong bonds with the artisans and always make sure to keep in touch and see that their life improves under our support.
Due to your support and our continued success, we have expanded beyond just Nepal and India and now source our products ethically, from mainly Southeast Asia. (Thailand, Bali) We have expanded our collection due to the repeated requests of our customers asking for more and more culturally diverse products, and have made some new friends along the way.
You can directly impact the local artisans by visiting either Nepal and India and experiencing the rich and vibrant culture. Many small independent businesses fail due to the changing times, and this, in turn, affects the local artisans in small villages in Southeast Asia creating a domino effect. With your support, we can continue supporting our friends from Southeast Asia and continually grow to impact their lives in a positive fashion.
I have bought three of these candle powered prayer wheels: the "Om" and "Medicine Buddha " mantra models. They are really enjoyable. They are well made and work very well. A standard tea candle doesn't work as well as a taller candle.
Beautiful Prayer Wheel that works perfectly. Thank you.
Looks great on my altar and really helps with the homeopathic healing. Just great decor for my candles
Package came very quickly and looks better even in person. Setup was very easy and was just twisting without any tools. Love this store and knew they would deliver high quality goods
