The Dharmacakra (Sanskrit) or Dhammacakka (Pāli), Tibetan chos.kyi 'khor.lo, Chinese fălún 法轮, "Wheel of Dharma" is an auspicious symbol representing a dharma (law) in Hinduism and the Buddha's teaching of the path to enlightenment. It is also sometimes translated as wheel of doctrine or wheel of law. A similar symbol is also in use in Jainism.
