藏輪=經輪=輪藏

藏輪=經輪=prayer wheel

經輪是刻有經文的圓筒形物,用手轉動之可以代替唸經,屬古代高科技。 (梁永安)

佛學中另有一名相曰「輪藏」,其英義如:
Revolving scriptures, a revolving stand with eight faces, representing the eight directions, each containing a portion of the sacred canon; a praying-wheel, the revolving of which brings as much merit to the operator as if he had read the whole. (RL)

藏人轉「經輪」,是對於轉法輪的一種誤解。
