Wheel of Life

The wheel of Life is perhaps the most common picture of Tibetan Buddhist art and it is seen on the walls of monasteries and painted scrolls all over Tibet, India and Nepal.
The various parts of the painting represent in visual terms some of the most fundamental Buddhist teachings such as the 12 steps of dependent origination, the karmic laws of cause and effect, and the three “kleshas” (mental states affecting actions) of ignorance, greed and hatred.
