"Wheel of Life" - http://www.buddhanet.net/wheel2.htm
"The Wheel of life illustrates in a popular way the essence of Buddhist teachings, the four truths, the existence of earthly suffering, its origin and cause, the ending or prevention of misery and the practice path to liberation from suffering.
The Wheel of life describes the cause of evil and its effects mirrored in earthly phenomena just as it is experienced by everyone from the cradle to the grave. Picture by picture it reminds us that everyone is always his or her own judge and is responsible for their own fate, because according to Karma, causes and effects are the fruits of ones own deeds."
See you soon.
