Prayer wheels at Swayambhunath Stupa

People turning prayer wheels in Swayambhunath Temple. According to the Tibetan Buddhist tradition based on the lineage texts regarding prayer wheels, spinning such a wheel will have much the same meritorious effect as orally reciting the prayers. Kora is both a type of pilgrimage and a type of meditation in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Kora is performed by making a walking circumambulation around a temple, stupa, or other sacred site. Kora is performed around Swayambhunath and Bodhnath, two important stupas in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal.
