Prayer wheels have been made in many forms throughout the history of this 1,600 year old tradition. They can be made from metal, wood, paper, stone, leather, or even coarse cotton.  Some are small enough to be held in the hand, others are set into giant rows and spun by passers by. Traditional prayer wheels can be powered by hand, water, wind, or fire.

Technological advances have made electric-powered prayer wheels possible, and in recent years the wheel has gone digital. Animated gifs, internet-operated wheels and spinning hard drives are all now considered legitimate, if more abstract manifestations of this meditational tool.

Now, for the first time in history, the people of our world have the opportunity to build a space satellite prayer wheel, and set it in motion circling our globe, and sending out healing intentions for our planet.
