Symbolism of the Dharma Wheel


My wife and I were talking about religious symbols over the weekend, and naturally Buddhism came up. She was wondering aloud if the lotus was the most important and well known symbol in Buddhism. I told her that, to the best of my knowledge, the dharma wheel was more widely used as a symbol for the Middle Way than the lotus is. Our conversation prompted me to do a small amount of research on the subject. The following article on the dharma wheel is from factsbehindfaith.com.
