What are the benefits?
Contributing towards the building of a place of worship, Sangha living quarters or Buddha statues is extremely meritorious. Every sponsor of a Prayer Wheel will have their name inscribed on the prayer wheel. Each turn of the wheel is equivalent to reciting thousands of mantras, thus collecting tremendous merits and good karma for the sponsor on a daily basis.
