Overview


What happens when I die? How did I come into existence? Who—or what—am I? The Wheel of Life is one of the most powerful Buddhist images to make its way to the West. This graphic representation of the Buddhist understanding of life contains throughout sublime teachings and subtle philosophy that can shatter our limited views of ourselves and the world. Whether we take its imagery as literal truth or a psychological metaphor, Kulananda illustrates how the Wheel of Life can act as a mirror to our own lives. Within its depths, we can see the forces that limit and bind us, the happiness and suffering we create for ourselves and the chain of ingrained habits that make us who we are. But if we look closer, this magical mirror can begin shed light on our route to freedom.
