What is the significance of the Dharma wheels?

The wheel, a weapon, originated from the fighting vessels in ancient India was used in battles that led to victory.  In Buddhism, the three meanings of the wheel, crushing, perpetual movement and completeness, like a circle, are used to represent the significance of Buddha teaching the Dharma.  The Dharma is the all encompassing and perfect teaching which destroys worries and defilements of all sentient beings.  It is perpetually moving without interruption.
