Mantra-spin

A mantra is written on the top and bottom of the spin. The toll is similar to a Tibetan prayer wheel. According to Tibetan Buddhism, turning a prayer wheel in the direction of the clock has the same effect as pronouncing the prayers or mantras in question. When you start spinning the Mantra spin in the bowl, you say the mantra in your mind or out loud. This is repeated after the Mantra toll has finished turning. On the Mantra-spin is the mantra: Om mani padme hum. This mantra has many meanings. The most important is "Greeting to the jewel in the lotus". OM = Greeting, Mani = Jewel, Padme = Lotus and Hum = standard closing of a mantra. To manipadmé hum, is the most recited mantra in Tibetan Buddhism. It is an invocation, invocation of the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, (The possessor of) the Jewel Lotus. According to Avalokitesvara, all prayers of men are in trouble and her own Buddhahood states that every man has attained Enlightenment. The Mantra-spin with bowl is designed and made of EM ceramics by Dorje Pottery , Vladimir Radovic (Zagreb, 1949), alias Dorje, is a specialist of the pottery wheel. His artwork is inspired by the Buddhist cultural traditions from China, Japan and Korea. Using traditional techniques and ancient ornaments, punches and rolls, unique ceramic is created, that is both original and authentic. Dorje playfully integrates old forms and old ways of working in his artwork that is rooted in the Buddhist culture from Korea, Japan and China, where pottery has a dignified place in both spiritual life as in daily life. Many travels to the far east, study of tempels and input of various lama’s in combination with Dorje’s craftmanship have led to skilfull solutions for religious terms and restrictions imposed on form and function of various objects, as can be seen in his meza’s.
