Buddhist Wheel of Life :: One can practice dharma to liberate him/herself from ignorance, desire & hatred. On the upper right of this painting is the Buddha standing outside of the wheel pointing to the moon which means that he shows us the way to refuse from Samsara. Some Wheel of Life Paintings have shown the way that we can walk out to the kingdom of the Buddha, some don't.
