Turning Wheel (fa Lun):
The Wheel is one of the most important symbols in Buddhist art and iconography. It represents the endless cycle of birth, death and rebirth known as Samsara. It also symbolizes the Dharma, or teaching, of the Buddha, which is in constant motion and provides a path towards spiritual enlightenment and eventual release from this cycle. Some Buddhist believe that the three main sections of the wheel–the hub, the spokes and the rim — represent the three kinds of training of Buddhist practice. The hub denotes the training in moral discipline, which supports and stabilizes the mind. The spokes symbolize the application of wisdom to in order to defeat ignorance. The rim represents the training in concentration, which holds the whole prcatice together.
