      The wheel of life (bhavachakra in Sanskrit, or samsara for others) is often found on the exterior walls of the monasteries, on either side of the main entrance. It represents samsara which is a synonym of the word life. The “wheel” also happens to be a synonym of samsara, as it can also mean “cycle” or “rotation”.
