Symbols

The Falun known as a Dharma wheel (or Dharmacakra) is the main symbol of Falun Gong. It represent the completeness of the teachings in Buddhism and the term ‘turning the wheel’ means preaching the Buddhist teachings and is the main focal point of the Falun Gong text. Under the Falun Gong, the wheel represents the universe. It has one big and four smaller swastika symbols on the wheel. These represent Buddha and the small swastikas represent ying-yang symbols of the Daoist tradition.
