*weghos (PIE) - way,path:-

The old PIE root is manifested in English way and German weg. However if we look eastwards, in Sanskrit we have marga. About which, discussing the difference between temporal art and the religious iconography of India's myriad gods and goddesses, Joseph Campbell writes:

In contrast to the figures in works of secular art (desi) they [images of the gods] open the mind to brahman and are know themselves, as the path or the way (marga). The sanskrit marga is derived from mrg, to hunt (by following the track of an animal through the forest to its lair), the animal to be found through contemplation of the image of a god being, of course, that indwelling golden person (purusha) which is one's own eternal portion. (The Way of the Seeded Earth vol1 p29)
Further east we find the notion in Chinese tao or dao, The Way, a comprehensive philosophy of life which unlike the introverted philosophies of India is very much imbued with awe at the physical wonder of the world. Further east again in Japan the word reverts again to many different paths with the word   - dō . It retains its abstract sense and can be found in the names of many disciplines such as Bushidō 武士道 - the Way of the Warrior; Chadō 茶道 - the Way of Tea; Jūdō  柔道  -the Gentle Way; Kendo 剣道  - the Way of the Sword, Aikidō 合気道 - roughly, the Way of Harmonising (with) Life Energy. The indigenous Japanese pantheistic religion is called Shinto 神道, roughly, the way of the spirit/s.
The dash and lower part of the character denotes movement and the right part of the character denotes chief/main. So the kanji in its most prosaic sense means main road.
