Why Lakhor?

The first wheel used by humans was probably the potter’s wheel in Mesopotamia around 3500 BC. Ever since, many earlier civilizations used the wheel to transport weapons such as catapults and in transporting armies on chariots and other carriages, mostly for destruction. On the contrary, the first wheels in the Himalayan Buddhist world were used to turn prayers for peace and harmony among all sentient beings. Prayer Wheels are common religious objects for Buddhists worldwide. They are often referred to as Prayer Wheels, Dharma Wheels, or mani chho-khor. “Lakhor” is the prayer wheel turned by the help of the hand. It is believed that using a prayer wheel brings great blessings, and creates enormous and powerful karma. Many lamas, monks and lay practitioners use the prayer wheel daily as an adjunct to using a rosary beads. The reason is simply that all of the thousands of prayers written inside the prayer wheel exponentially increase the blessings. Prayer wheels or Lakhor are synonymous with the Himalayan landscape and culture. Turning a prayer wheel clockwise is believed to send thousands of prayers in the spiritual atmosphere to cleanse negative karma for all sentient beings. We adopted the name Lakhor because it was inspirational, representing a selfless ideal and a wheel that signifies travel by bringing peace as it rotates in clockwise direction. The sight of prayer wheels and the occasional ringing of the bell as it finishes a rotation fill the air with sense of peace and serenity, giving your mind a total rest. It is our belief that in all our efforts to share Bhutan with you, be it for culture, adventure or nature, we will collectively add to the positive energy just as we are turning a giant prayer wheel for all sentient beings.
