- Tibetan Buddhism Prayer wheels are used throughout the Tibetan cultural world by individuals of each social station and standing. The turning of the wheels activates the blessing of the mantras within, creating good karma and removing obstacles to enlightenment for the advantage of all beings. Each clockwise revolution releases the mantras and is like reciting an equivalent number of mantras within the prayer.
