Ka? The triangle or the snake?

A Dark Tower reference:

Ka wrote:
Like many words in High Speech, ka has multiple meanings and so is difficult to define precisely. It signifies life force, consciousness, duty, and destiny. In the vulgate, or LOW SPEECH, it also means a place to which an individual must go. The closest terms in our language are probably fate and destiny, although ka also implies karma, or the accumulated destiny (and accumulated debt) of many existences. We are the servants of ka, but we are also its prisoners. Ka’s one purpose is to turn, and we turn with it, albeit sometimes under different names and in different bodies. In The Dark Tower (Book VII of the Dark Tower series) ka is compared to a train hurtling forward, one which may not be sane.

Or to quote the purpose of Ka:
“Ka was like a wheel, its one purpose to turn, and in the end it always came back to the place where it had started.”
I found this to be similar to how the Wheel of Dharma, or "The Dharmacakra" Sanskrit: धर्मचक्र, was similar to Ka.
