“A Buddhist symbol, the Tiratana is also known as the Three Jewels of Buddhism. These concepts are depicted as a flame that holds three circles protected within it. The flame is symbolic of eternity, and the three circles are the Buddha, his teachings or Dharma, and the Sangha, his followers.” (158)
