"Kala" means time and "chakra " means cycle in Sanskrit word. Kalachakra is the representation of the cyclical nature of time in Hindu and Buddhist cosmologies. The teachings, called Kalachakra Tantra, are considered to be some of the most advanced and complex in Tibetan Buddhism. It is a two-dimensional representation of the five-story palace of the Kalachakra deity, in which a total of 722 deities resides, with Kalachakra and his consort Vishvamata united in an embrace of perpetual bliss at the very center. The Mandala practice of Kalchakra is to initiate to “enter” into the mandala and identify with the deity represented therein.


The floors of the palace depicted in the Kalachakra Mandala, from the ground up, represent:

1.Enlightened body

2.Enlightened speech

3.Enlightened mind

4.Enlightened wisdom

5.Enlightened great bliss


Arrayed around the palace are four elemental rings and two outer rings. From the inside out they are:

1.Earth

2.Water

3.Fire

4.Wind

5.Space

6.Wisdom
