Blue Kalachakra Mandala is handpainted on cotton canvas in Nepal. Kalachakra Mandala is one of the most complicated forms of Tibetan mandalas.
This is used as a device for meditation and which is worshipped for the betterment of all the sentient beings. It also represents the cosmos system which consists of the five major elements of life. Namely – Fire, Earth, Water, Air, and Space.
The Kalachakra Mandala was designed by the Dalai Lama as a visual tool for Buddhist practitioners.
The central symbol of the lotus, representing the Buddha, is surrounded by a structure that reminds a palace. Every detail of the mandala, each deity, and symbol, has both a physical meaning (Outer Kalachakra) and spiritual symbolism (Inner Kalachakra) and they are interconnected by the doors of the structure.
Kalachakra is a symbol of inner peace and helps to restore physical and mental balance.
