The Dharma Wheel

The wheel of the Dharma is a symbol referring to Buddha's teaching. Buddha's teachings are a word that is rotated by the Buddha, a word of the world as a circle. The word of the Buddha, called Sanskrit dharma, is a supporting word, which is a well-known world, and is visualised by the wheel. The circle is also a sign of science in the Tibetan Rite of Bon. In the sense of the sign of happiness, Tonpa Sienrab, a gift teacher, speaks of the wheel figuratively as having the feet (as in the legs) miraculous ways of reign and being a sign of uncontested dominion.

In addition to the symbol, the wheel of the Dharma can mean the assembly of the word or the centre of the word as a place of deliberation, a meeting dedicated to listening to science or the celebration of the common rite. Sometimes, it may also mean any religious congregation or building dedicated to religious gatherings.
Yet another meaning of the Dharma Circle is an instrument built in the form of a grinder with prayers or spells engraved on it, often with scrolls with sacred contents inside (i.e. Prayers, spells or content of sacred Buddhist scriptures).

The wheel of the Dharma can also be the center of words in the body. The center is usually considered a heart. This significance refers to the kind of spiritual anatomy of the Buddhist, where the visible human body is seen as a network of nerves and centers in which the winds and strengths of the human life are concentrated. The western movements of the New Age have created a lot of fancy ideas about those nerve centers that they like to call from the Sanskrit language "chakras." These ideas often do not interact with healthy Buddhist science or are even contradictory. The meaning of the word "circle" ( 'khor Lo, Skt. Cakra) should be particularly careful of warping and misconception.
