A dharma wheel has three basic parts - the hub, the rim, and the spokes. Over the centuries , various teachers and traditions have proposed diverse meanings for these parts, and explaining all of them is beyond the scope of this article. Here are some common understandings of the wheel's symbolism:
The circle, the round shape of the wheel, represents the perfection of the dharma, the Buddha's teaching.
The rim of the wheel represents meditative concentration and mindfulness, which hold practice together.
The hub represents moral discipline. The three swirls often seen on the hub are sometimes said to represent the Three Treasures or Three Jewels - Buddha, dharma, sangha. They may also represent joy.
