The twelve interdependent causes and their effects
This is described by the twelve pictures of the outer circle: The first picture: Beginning with Ignorance, which is spiritual blindness, illustrated by an old and sightless man with a stick, unable to find his way [bottom left].
The second picture shows a potter, his pots being symbolic of his own deeds [acting, speaking, and thinking] with which he molds his own karma, popularly called fate.
The third picture depicts a tree and a monkey springing from branch to branch: this symbolizes the major consciousness which in ignorant people springs uncontrolled from object to object. For this reason, by analysis leading to the understanding of inner and outer phenomena, Buddhist psychology always aims at the full control of consciousness.
