More Information

Tibetan Buddhists believe that spinning a prayer wheel, or even reading the prayer written on it or placed inside it, helps spread spiritual blessings and well-being. The Bodhnath Stupa (a stupa is an early form of Buddhist religious monument) is the largest in Nepal and a world center of Tibetan Buddhism.
