The 24 spokes contained in the Ashoka Chakra represents the 24 hours of the day. It also represents the 24 Dharma rishis of the Hindu religion who were able to wield the whole power of the Gayatri Mantra. These Dharma rishis are represented by the 24 letter of Gayatri Mantra. The first spoke of the Ashok Chakra represents the Vishwa Mitra Rishi.
