Kalachakra

Kalachakra is the main deity of Sambara. Kalachakra has four heads, with three eyes in each head. His hair is tied up in a double knot. He has twenty-four arms and each hand holds a different symbol. His two main arms are crossed around the waist of his consort, and each of his main hand holds a vajra. The Wheel of Time Kalachakra is a yidam of the Highest Tantra. In the hidden kingdom of Shamballa, it is said the inhabitants practice Tantric Buddhism based on the Kalachakra system. He fuses time and timelessness into a non-dualistic view of absolute reality. This Tantric practice is most important to the Gelukpa sect with whom it is most closely associated.   Kalachakra refers to a vast system of spiritual exercises said to be taught by the Buddha more than 2,500 years ago in India, and also is the name of the principal yidam in this system. Kalachakra is part of wider system of practices in Tibetan Buddhism called tantra.
