  1. Where is Khyungpo? Beautiful photo, the wheels look new??????

  2. Kyungpo is an ethnically Bon region of Kham, Eastern Tibet. There is a relatively new Yungdrung Bon monastery there.

  3. Raven, Could you tell me if the prayers are written inside for the wheels to spin clockwise or counterclockwise? Thank you, Huyen

  4. Hello Huyen,
    Yungdrung Bon prayer wheels are to be turned counter clockwise. Buddhist prayer wheels are to be turned clockwise. Each of the prayers and mantras inside are placed accordingly.

    All the beat,
    Raven
