Religion in the 21st Century
The Wheel of Life (depicted below) illustrates the doctrine of the six realms (gods, asuras [anti-gods], humans, animals, hungry ghosts, hell-beings), shown in the large segments.
The outer rim of the wheel depicts the twelve links of dependent origination:
ignorance, karma formations, consciousness, name and form, six sense fields, contact, feeling, craving, grasping becoming, birth, old age and death.
