Spin the prayer wheel clockwise to receive inspiring images from Tibet matched to wisdom-quotes that will shift your perspective toward peace and well being. Share your favorites and help spread enlightenment to all beings.
A prayer wheel is a metal cylinder on a spindle with the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum, meaning Bless the Jewell in the Lotus, written in Sanskrit on the outside of the wheel. The jewel in the lotus is the teachings of Buddha whose wisdoms assist followers to enlightenment.
Prayer wheels line the walls of monasteries in Tibet and Mongolia. Walking clockwise around the monastery and spinning the prayer wheels is a daily meditation, practiced by thousands of pilgrims wanting to generate good karma for themselves and other sentient beings.
The spinning of prayer wheels is believed to open the mind to the wisdom of the universe. Prayers spiral clockwise up to heaven and good karma is generated for all beings. The more you spin, the better the world becomes. There are water driven prayer wheels placed in rivers, wind driven prayer wheels on mountain-sides, fixed spindle prayer wheels in temple walls, hand-wheels on sticks for long journeys where there are no fixed prayer wheels, and now an even more portable wheel the poetic universe prayer wheel for iPhone.
Spin with a finger swipe, on the way to work, in the train, on a plane… Be transported to Tibet with photographs of mountains and monasteries, pilgrims and pilgrimage places, nomads and monks, and day-to-day life in Tibet and Mongolia.

Make sure you save your faves
I have followed a poetic Universe the blog for two years as it was being built. i am so happy that it is now an app. I think it is wonderful that you have to spin a prayer wheel before you get your wisdom fix! It kind've makes you slow down for a moment in this world of instant everything. Just a warning though - there are some great photo quote combos and if you find one you like, save it, as once you spin the wheel again you never know when you will come accross it again.
the pictures look awsome in high res
Wow. This is totally cool. I have seen prayer wheels on phones before but not one that you can controll yourself. And this one dispenses illustrated wisdoms. So far the pictures look great ( awsome in highres), and the wisdoms are well matched if subtle in some cases.. I would have only let people spin it clockwise, but then its gotta be realistic. I didn't realise that Apple has put a 20 mb restriction on downloads, so had to download this through my computer, but its worth it. It really puts a smile on your face. Thanks. JM
