PRAYER WHEEL INSTRUCTIONS
The “Welcome Home” Prayer Wheel
How to use the prayer wheel:
Think of a prayer, write it on a piece of paper, and put it in the top of the wheel.
Or, think of a prayer and send it to the top of the wheel.
Spin the wheel, touching only the green bands at the bottom.
Buddhists believe that as the wheel is spinning, your prayer will go up to heaven.
