  在西藏随处可见右手持转经轮,左手持念珠,口中念诵着佛经的佛教信徒。手摇转经轮的大少不一,质地各异。上方转轮内装有经咒和六字真言。每旋转一周等于将转轮内的经文或六字真言诵读一遍,以此积德。这件手摇转经轮由银质转轮和象牙柄两部分组成,制作精良。转轮上刻有精美图案,部分图案鎏金。轮上还缀有小坠,用以加速转动的惯性。转动时必须按顺时针方向旋转。
  EVERYWHERE IN TIBET YOU CAN SEE BUDDHIST BELIEVERS HOLDING A HAND PRAYER WHEEL IN THE RIGHT HAND AND A ROSARY IN THE LEFT AND CHANTING THE BUDDHIST MANUSCRIPTS 。HAND PRAYER WHEELS ARE DIFFERENT IN SIZE AND MATERIAL 。THE UPPER SECTION OF A PRAYER WHEEL CONTAINS THE BUDDHIST INCANTATION AND THE SIX SYLLABLE TRUTH INSIDE THE WHEEL ONCE 。THIS HAND-TURNING PRAYER WHEEL IS SILVER WITH DELICATE AND BEAUTIFUL DESIGNS AND SOME OF THE PATTERNS ARE GILDED 。PENDANTS ARE ATTACHED TO THE WHEEL TO ACCELERATE THE SPEED ,A PRAYER WHEEL SHOULD ALWAYS BE TURNED CLOCKWISE
