Other? We apologize but other religions are not yet supported.

I was just curious if they had Satanic, Flying Spaghetti Monster, and Cuthulu prayers.

Tibetan Buddhists are already covered.

The Dalai Lama has commented that animated GIFs on websites work just as well as other prayer wheels. As the GIF image turns, waves of compassion emanate in all directions to the surrounding area.

Some have suggested that the spinning of a hard drive (several thousand rotations per minute) can act in similar function to a prayer wheel by saving an image of Om mani padme hum or other mantra on their local machine.

Is G*d more likely to intercede on my behalf if I use Alex, Bruce, Fred, Princess, Bubbles, or Victoria? I think Bad News, Deranged and Hysterical should most likely be avoded. This is not to be entered into lightly, and I'm unsure of my self here.

So now all we need is an Electric Monk from Douglas Adams' Dirk Gently, Hook it up to one of these, and the circle is complete.

[Quote:]
The Electric Monk was a labour-saving device, like a dishwasher or a video recorder. Dishwashers washed tedious dishes for you, thus saving you the bother of washing them yourself, video recorders watched tedious television for you, thus saving you the bother of looking at it yourself; Electric Monks believed things for you, thus saving you what was becoming an increasingly onerous task, that of believing all the things the world expected you to believe.
