Using the prayer wheel

Post by gyamtsotrinle » Wed Feb 07, 2018 8:36 pm

Hi friends,

is it possible to use prayer wheel for whatever mantra, not just for mani, or benza guru? also can I do make some prayers during the using wheell? I mean, for example one recite Om tare,..and during this one visualize how from wheel emiting a lot of Taras to the people and fullfing their wishes, or Teayta om bekandze,.. Medicine Buddha and healing their sickness, or Guru Padmasambhava and removing obstacles, and so on,..or making prayers (..during turning prayer wheel) like long life for our lamas, fulfiling wishes, for example to have a lot of time for practising, etc,..? or should one follow what is written in books, manuals for that?
thank you
