The image at the center of the Dharmachakra (dharma wheel) is taken from the Chojo Mandara Scroll, a Japanese work from the 9th century. It said to be a parasol and is the "ayutana" (symbolic form) of Ganapati, as used in a "citta mandala". In Sanskrit, however, the word "chattra" means both parasol and mushroom. Crowley contends that this is intended to be a visual pun. Based on the prominent umbo (the bump on some mushroom caps), Crowley believes that this represents Psilocybe liniformans, a potently psychedelic mushroom found in Japan and Northern China.
