General definition (in Buddhism)Source: Buddhist Door: Glossary
The Buddha truth which is able to crush all evil, and which rolls on from man to man, place to place and age to age. To turn the wheel means to preach Buddha truth.Source: WikiPedia: Buddhism
The Wheel of Law (Sanskrit: Dharmacakra), sometimes representing Sakyamuni Buddha and the Dharma teaching; also representing the mandala and chakra. This symbol is commonly used by Tibetan Buddhists where it sometimes also includes an inner wheel of the Gankyil (Tibetan), but in Nepal the Wheel of Law is not used by Nepalese Buddhists in the eight auspicious symbols. Instead of the Dharma wheel, a Fly Whisk may be used as one of the ashtamangala symbolizing Tantric manifestations and is made of a yaks tail attached to a silver staff and used during ritual recitation and fanning the deities in an auspicious religious ceremony (puja); another guise of the Dharmacakra which unites the functionality of the yaks tail with the doctrinal aspect of the "Wheel of Law" is the Mani wheel. The Sudarshana Chakra is a Hindu wheel symbol.
