Hindus believe so many things and one of the beliefs about this wheel is described here scientifically.

Theory of Sri Chakram

Oldest Religion
One of the oldest religions is Hinduism, people lived in Indus valley were following Hinduism as an Idol was unearthed during the excavation.

Hindus believe in God. They do idol worship. Temples are built for God as home for them though different ideologies exist. First temple was built around 1st century near sea shore of south Tamil Nadu and another one in Bihar State. Hundreds of big temples were built from 7th century to 13th century by the kings ruled South India. Hindus consider God as the Creator of Humans; He must be like human being and so sculptured god images in stone, then in five metals. They are worshiped in temples long long ago.

Symbolic Representation

Symbolic representation of power had been done by the Hindus from time immemorial. One of the symbolic forms is Sri Chakram. It is a circular object similar to a wheel having a centre and around the centre many triangles. At the extreme end there are three concentrate circles. Next to the circles, lotus petals are present covering the remaining area.
A wheel is symbolically considered as a rotating force. When a wheel is rotating, it develops two types of force, one is centripetal and the other is centrifugal. When a body is at rest, it has potential energy and when it is in motion the energy it has is kinetic energy. So a wheel is considered as a source of power and centre of energy. The universe is said to be in motion. All heavenly bodies are rotating and revolving.

Lotus Flower

Lotus plant is seen in lakes and ponds. It has the ability to rise up above water level and sink down to adjust water level so that it is always above the surface of water. The lotus symbolically represents human life which has ups and downs in life and has the capacity to succeed them with their knowledge and experience. Lotus is said to be white and purity which a person needs throughout his life to manage the odds he come across like the water level in a pond.


The triangles are symbolically representing either a pyramid structure or connecting 3 ends as father, mother and children or parents, teacher and god. The human relationship is represented by the triangles and each side of the triangle as present, past and future of three phases of life. The three phases of human life is well explained by a triangle.


It is believed that a person holding Sri Chakram, it propels to him get all benefits and life is expected to be rythmatic and happy as the Chakram reminds the morals of life.
