Tibetan Kalachakra art is handpainted by Mandala artists in Kathmandu Nepal. It is handpainted in cotton canvas with natural colors. The size of the Kalachakra mandala is 38*38cm.
It refers to one of the most complex philosophies and meditation practices within tantric Buddhism. Kalachakra is a Sanskrit word that means “Time wheel”. The Kalachakra Mandala represents a big palace with 5 distinct levels. Every detail of the mandala from each deity to every adornment of the building refers to time and the universe (Outer Kalachakra) or physical and mental aspects (Inner Kalachakra) as well as the practice.
The Kalachakra mandala represents the wheel of our lives, and the time we have in this world to make peace with ourselves. This beautiful artwork also symbolizes both individual and universal peace and meditating in front of it helps to restore physical and mental balance. His Holiness the Dalai Lama himself give lectures during the Tibetan Buddhist Kalachakra empowerment ritual explaining the importance of this mandala and the many symbols.
