Buddhism: The Wheel of Life
The Wheel of Life in
Wheel of Life is a representation of the Buddhist teaching on the
suffering and impermanence of cyclic existence.
Dalai Lama of Tibet, the Winner of the Nobel Piece Prize, explains the
differences between the Buddhist and Western approaches to life, "In modern
Western society, there seems to be a powerful cultural conditioning that is
based on science. But in some instances, the basic premises and
parameters set up by Western science can limit your ability to deal with
For instance, you have the constraints of the idea that
everything can be explained within the framework of a single lifetime, and
you combine this with the notion that everything can and must be explained
and accounted for. But when you encounter phenomena that you cannot account
for, then there's a kind of tension created; it's almost a feeling of agony.
In Western psychology there may be a tendency to overemphasize the role of
the unconscious in looking for the source of one's problems. This stems from
some of the basic assumptions that Western psychology starts with: for
instance, they do not accept the idea of imprints being carried over from a
And at the same time there is an assumption
that everything must be accounted for within this lifetime. So, when you
can't explain what is causing certain behaviors or problems, the tendency is
to always attribute it to the unconscious. It's
a bit like you've lost something and you decide that the object is in this
room. And once you have decided this, then you've already fixed your
parameters; you've precluded the possibility of its being outside the room
or in another room.
So you keep on searching and searching, but you
are not finding it, yet you continue to assume that it is still hidden
somewhere in the room!"
can accept many of the factors that the Western theorists can come up with,
but on top of that it would add additional factors.
For example, it would add the conditioning and
imprints from previous lives."2
