Prana, Sanskrit for "life force," refers to the invisible energy that permeates all things and unites all the elements of the universe. Inspired by this thought-provoking concept, this elegant ring uses the function of a Tibetan prayer wheel to encourage us to meditate on our place in the cosmos and our connection to everything in it. The concept of the prayer wheel is a physical manifestation of the phrase "turning the wheel of Dharma," which describes the way in which the Buddha taught. Prayer wheels are used to accumulate wisdom and merit (good karma) and to purify negativities (bad karma), and with every meditative turn they help bring practitioners ever closer to enlightenment.
