This is human life as the Buddha the awakened one, envisioned and understood it - and so deeply that at first he would not speak. The wheel of life drawn by hand by the taneously reveals the fleeting grandeur and folly that is the human experience.
As surely as we have within each of us our own innate Buddha nature and the capacity to mainfest the goddess in her infite forms, We are also creatures of lust and joy, pain and sorrow, love, potential of our higher reality. The tiny pictures displayed in the outer circle illustrate the cycle of ordinary life as it begins in blind ignorance, circle around, and ends as a corpse carried to the sky burial ground
Within the circle the six realms of gods, demigods, humans, animals, pretas (hungry ghosts), and beings condemned to the hell elaborate the theme of ever-present suffering. In the center, the small ring contains a cock, a snake, and a boar, representing the three posiond of greed, hatred, and delusion that are the roots of all our negative karma, form modest everyday thoughts of '' one more cookie won't hurt me" to the championing slogans of war mongering such as "they are believers in strange gods; therefore we must annihilate them."
The six-part middle ring includes lost beings falling downward towards the hells in one side and on the other, those listening to the words of a lama who seeks to turn they'd attention upwards. The upper right of the painting who in turn indicates Shakyamuni Buddha, who sits at the upper left, at the end of a rainbowpath along which pilgrims are travelling.
