or Kuklos Anagkes (Greek) Kuklos is Greek for a circle or wheel. Ananke or Anagke comes from the ancient Greek: Ανάγκη, a goddess representing destiny, necessity, and fate. Thus the Kuklos Anankes is the circle or wheel of destiny or necessity, which can represent the journey of the disembodied entity to a temporary experience of happiness (the state of devachan) and back to Earth. At times, it was symbolized by serpent-mounds, the serpent swallowing his tail, and other emblems of the dragon, all of which denote cyclic time, among other things. Visible in the subterranean crypts of Thebes and Memphis. See also: Ananke

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"Those who only preoccupy themselves with their own spiritual progress and do not work for others achieve absolutely nothing. Whosoever wants to progress must sacrifice the self for others."
