A prayer wheel is a cylindrical wheel (Tibetan: འཁོར་ལོ།, Wylie: khor lo) on a spindle made from metal, wood, stone, leather or coarse cotton.

Traditionally, the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum is written in Newari language of Nepal, on the outside of the wheel.

Sometimes depicted are Dakinis, Protectors and very often the 8 auspicious symbols Ashtamangala.

At the core of the cylinder is a "Life Tree" often made of wood or metal with certain mantras written on or wrapped around it.

Many thousands (or in the case of larger prayer wheels, millions) of mantras are then wrapped around this life tree. The Mantra Om Mani Padme Hum is most commonly used, but other mantras may be used as well.

According to the Tibetan Buddhist tradition based on the lineage texts regarding prayer wheels, spinning such a wheel will have much the same meritorious effect as orally reciting the prayers.

According to the lineage texts on prayer wheels, prayer wheels are used to accumulate wisdom and merit (good karma) and to purify negativities (bad karma).

In Buddhism, Buddhas and Bodhisattvas have created a variety of skillful means (upaya) to help bring practitioners ever closer to realizing enlightenment.

The idea of spinning mantras relates to numerous Tantric practices whereby the Tantric practitioner visualizes mantras revolving around the nadis and especially around the meridian chakras such as the heart and crown.

Therefore, prayer wheels are a visual aid for developing one's capacity for these types of Tantric visualizations.

The spiritual method for those practicing with a prayer wheel is very specific (with slight variations according to different Buddhist sects).

The practitioner most often spins the wheel clockwise, as the direction in which the mantras are written is that of the movement of the sun across the sky.

On rare occasions, advanced Tantric practitioners such as Senge Dongma, the Lion-Faced Dakini, spin prayer wheels counterclockwise to manifest a more wrathful protective energy. As the practitioner turns the wheel, it is best to focus the mind and repeat the Om Mani Padme Hum mantra.

Not only does this increase the merit earned by the wheel's use, but it is a mind-stabilization technique that trains the mind while the body is in motion.

Intoning the mani mantra with mindfulness and the "Bodhicitta" motivation dramatically enhances the effects of the prayer wheel, however, it is said that even turning it while distracted has benefits and merits, and it is stated in the lineage text that even insects that cross a prayer wheel's shadow will get some benefit.

Each revolution is as meritorious as reading the inscription aloud as many times as it is written on the scroll, and this means that the more Om Mani Padme Hum mantras that are inside a prayer wheel, the more powerful it is.

It is best to turn the wheel with a gentle rhythm and not too fast or frantically.

While turning smoothly, one keeps in mind the motivation and spirit of compassion and bodhichitta (the noble mind that aspires to full enlightenment for the benefit of all beings).

The benefits attributed to the practice of turning the wheel are vast.

Not only does it help wisdom, compassion and bodhichitta arise in the practitioner, it also enhances siddhis (spiritual powers such as clairvoyance, precognition, reading others thoughts, etc.).

The practitioner can repeat the mantra as many times as possible during the turning of the wheel, stabilizing a calm, meditative mind.

At the end of a practice session, there is a Tibetan Buddhist tradition of dedicating any accumulated merits that one may have gathered during practice to the benefit of all sentient beings.

What are Ubique Botanical Perfumes?

Welcome to Pure Perfume

Ubique is Latin for "everywhere", and refers to Omnipresence, the property of being present everywhere.

u-bi-que [oo-bee-kwe; English] adverb, Latin, "Everywhere".

Ubique Botanical Perfumes contain concentrated botanicals. Plant, flower, wood oils, absolutes, tinctures, and concretes are used and may cause an allergic reaction if you have an allergy to these substances. It is always best to begin your fragrant Ubique journey with a sample before purchasing a larger size, but don't wait too long...these are limited creations and they sell out quickly!

• We do not accept returns on perfumes, personal care items, or sale items. Please purchase and try sample sizes before purchasing larger sizes. Thank you!

Botanical Perfume FAQ's

• Keep products in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight
• Avoid using near the eyes or other sensitive areas
• Do not take internally
• Keep out of reach of children and pets
• Our products are 100% free of synthetic ingredients.
• All base products used are USDA Certified Organic and also are Non-GMO

As this is pure perfume, only a drop or two is needed. The organic botanical alcohol is NOT drying like the alcohol used in mass marketed perfumes. The EDP's (Eau de Parfum) come in convenient spray bottles.

Mine Rough Stones and Crystals

Mine rough stones are those we procure directly from a mine instead of a mass dealer. These stones are fresh from the earth and have not been previously sold. We prefer mine rough stones as the vibrational qualities are HIGH.

ALL STONES AND CRYSTALS ARE MINED.

One should not expect perfection when purchasing from ANY dealer unless the stone has been cut and polished and is listed as "perfect".

If perfection is desired, please only purchase cut and polished "perfect" stones.

Mine rough stones may have dents, dings, etc. We photograph each stone and describe what we see. We do not sell that which is not of high vibrational quality and authentic.
