This is fun! Two spinning (at different rates) and one still? That's my guess. The wheel on the left is praying harder and with more zeal? Great colors and framing.

Thanks a lot, Juleann! Yes, you've got it:-) There usually are rows of prayer wheels on the walls of monasteries. People walk round clockwise and turn the wheels in passing- the last person must have left out the middle one;-)

Danke, Dany! Beten muss man dort nicht unbedingt, nur einmal die Gebetsmühlen anschubsen, dann beten die für einen. Eigentlich eine sehr praktische Sache, die Leute dort haben schließlich genug zu arbeiten;-)

Thank you, Graham! I had to be quick, in my third shot all wheels had already come to a standstill.

Herzlichen Dank, Berny! LOL- im Erfinden von Betmaschinen sind die Buddhisten Weltklasse- es gibt auch wasserbetriebene Gebetsmühlen und welche mit Solarzellen für's Armaturenbrett;-)

fantastisch mit den 3 Schnelligkeiten in der Drehung

has replied to niraK68 club
Herzlichen Dank! Die verschiedenen Schnelligkeiten habe ich einem etwas nachlässigen Buddhisten zu verdanken, der die Gebetsmühlen nicht gleichmässig angeschoben hat;-)
