Kalachakra is a Sanskrit word that can be translated literally as “wheel of time.” Kala, or “time,” is not linear time but the flow of all events, past, present, and future. This is similar to our concept of space, which does not imply a particular direction or limitation. The Kalachakra deity represents omniscience, for he is one with all time and therefore knows all. Chakra, meaning “wheel,” refers not only to the cycle of time but also to the way in which the enlightened experience of great bliss radiates like the sun from the self to all sentient beings. The wheel, with no beginning and no end, is also the universal symbol of Buddhism, representing the teachings of the Buddha.It refers to one of the most complex philosophies and meditation practices within Tantric Buddhism.
