Just shows how many beautiful ways the 12 steps of the Pratitya Samutpada (Pali Patitya Samutpada) can be represented and understood. If you click on the outer edges of the circle, it gives you the pratitya samutpada!
Enter into the teaching of the Buddha.
Like an elephant in a thatch house,
Destroy the forces of the Lord of Death.
Those who with thorough conscientiousness
Practice this disciplinary doctrine
Will forsake the wheel of birth,
Bringing suffering to an end.
