Abstract

Stephen Teiser's new book, Reinventing the Wheel, examines representations of the wheel of rebirth as a lived religion of the past, making ample use of illustrations.The wheel of rebirth is a unique iconography in Buddhist art that visually communicates Buddhist cosmology, including the realms of reincarnation, causality, and salvation, in the configuration of a circular diagram. This wheel-shaped diagram is found throughout the Asian Buddhist world.
