Dharma Wheel - Buddhist teaching

What does the Dharma wheel symbolize? - The Wheel of Dharma: Buddhist teaching

Wheel of weapon - eight auspicious symbols
  • in Sanskrit it is called cakra, in Tibetan it is called 'khor-lo
  • leads to liberation from pain
  • represents the teaching of the Buddha
  • the primordial essence of the mind
  • the eight paths of liberation from suffering; right view, right intention, right speech, right action, right behavior, right effort, right mindfulness and right concentration

In a broader sense, the Dharma Wheel symbolizes Buddhist teaching as a whole. It reminds us that the Dharma embraces all things, has neither beginning nor end: it is both moving and still.
