Wheel of Life
The wheel of life is a symbolic representation of samsara. "Bound in the Wheel of Becoming, sentient beings wander endlessly through the states of existence; now in the heavens, then in the hells, now torn with passions, then open and receptive. Holding the wheel firmly in his grasp is Yama, Lord of Death, the end of all beings. Only the Buddha stands completely outside the wheel, pointing the way to liberation."
