This is the first complete English translation of the fourth chapter of the esoteric Buddhist Kalacakratantra text, and its eleventh-century commentary, the Stainless Light Vimalaprabhaoften accorded pride of place as the first volume of the Tibetan Tenjur. He binds his twenty-four hands with his serpentine grappling-rope and, intimidating him with his remaining weapons, draws him here to the space in front.
Meditation is not to be aimed at the meditator, meditation, and what is meditated on as existing in any of the four extreme ways. If meditation is on phenomena as truly existentthis is also not correct meditation. If you are a student of Khenpo Pema or Lama Kunga then ask them. From this moment on, till my purified state, I reaffirm my bodhichitta aim, heighten my pure resolve, and get rid of grasping for “me” and “myself, the possessor.
My main face is black, ferocious, with saddhana fangs bared; my right face red and is full of desire; my hind face is yellow and settled into absorbed concentration; and my left face is white, serenely stilled and totally at peace.
There is also a brief sadhana written by Jamgon Kongtrul. On the palms of my left, then my right, then both hands in common and then in their center, resting on a moon, then a sun, then a Rahu, then Kalagni, are an OM, kalachaakra an AH, then a HUM, then a HO, from which light-rays emanate out.

The light-rays of the HUM at my heart rouse the wind to blow, the fire to blaze, the ingredients in the skullcup to melt and boil. Or there is no great differences between the various Kalachakra lineages and I can just refer to any available in the market?
Szdhana my heart it proceeds to my throat in the manner of a man-made result — distinguished joy. Just as the vajra of my enlightening mind shall remain in infinite lands to liberate all beings, so may these beings themselves, through the force of Kalachakra, do likewise and remain throughout the three realms.
Then once more this very drop proceeds as it did when it came before. Through the lustrous positive force deriving from this, may I never transgress, throughout kalachhakra my lives, the bounds prescribed by Vajradhara’s authority.
Emanation of the Mandala from the Lotus We, as the father and mother principal couple, absorb ourselves in a balanced union. Then once more a Vajrasattva, embraced by a Vajradhatu Ishvari is emanated forth and enters into me, while a Prajnaparamita, embraced by an Akshobhya, is emanated forth and enters to kalachakar inseparable from Kalacjakra.
From my private place it proceeds to my navel in the manner of a result similar to its cause — joy. In general Kalachakra practitioners can fairly openly use sadhana texts from Berzin. In the center of the top of it, from KSHAM comes a variegated lotus, equal to half the breadth of the top of Mount Meru, with a seed-head a third of this in breadth.
The water element in my body dampens the fire. This part of the Kalachakra Tantra is particularly difficult to translate. I come to have a vajra body, and the hordes of demonic forces and hindrances are decisively burnt off.
If meditation is considered a truly existent cause for gaining a result, this is also not correct meditation. Through the purification of the four disturbing emotions, there are Rudra, together with his wife, and the party of demonic Mara and his wife pressed under my feet, the Ruler of the All-Pervasive.
Abridged Nine-Deity Kalachakra Sadhana
With manifest joy, I rejoice in the massive store of constructive deeds of the Fully Enlightened Buddhas, kalacjakra and highly realized aryas, and in everything constructive done by anyone else. From her, as well, they are likewise emanated out and once again, in the aspect of the circle of those in my mandala, they enter me through the crown of my head.
Both are yellow with four faces — yellow, white, blue and red — and have eight arms, in the right hands of which the former is sqdhana a conch, a reed pipe, a gem, and a hand-drum, and in the left a lute, a drum, a reverberating gong, and a long brass horn.
From a HUM at my heart, then a vajra, arises a Vajravega, with a terrifying body of kalachskra rays of light, standing on a chariot drawn by an eight-limbed griffin.
Homage to you, rising from non-true existence; homage to you, arising from the Buddhas; homage to you, rising from space; homage to you, arising from deep awareness. The latter is holding eight yellow yaktail whisks. Praise I prostrate to you, O glorious Kalachakra. All of them have three eyes on each face, are adorned with five kinds of ornamental seals, have as their crowns blue Vajrasattvas, and stand in the posture of both legs together.
The moon, the sun, the vowels and consonants, which are in the nature of white and red bodhichittas, merge into one with the syllables that are the consciousness and the energy-wind, and from this arises the syllable HAM, a great blissful awareness — sphere of reality deep awareness. Transforming into the circle of those in my mandala world, assuming aspects having the 32 excellent signs, they depart to each of their own Buddha-fields.
Chogye Trichen remarked this was all one needed. Also, Shangpa practices were and are obviously included in Jonang. At the crown of my head, to a five-spoked vajra, the principal father and mother and ladies of discriminating awareness pass. I prostrate to you, Glorious Kalachakra. For beings tormented by the disease of disturbing emotions, I request you to set flow rounds of Dharma transmission of the nectars of Vajrayana, to heal them into blissful awareness. Through the purification of the 24 material classes of phenomena asserted by Samkhya there are my 24 weapons as the principal figure; And through the purification of the six elemental sources that are under the influence of the three universal constituents of natural matter there are my six external ornamental seals.
The light-rays of the HUM at my heart invite from its natural abode the mandala of glorious Kalachakra, the Vanquishing Master Surpassing All, so that those within will draw this up through the tube of light of the single-spoked vajra of their tongues and partake of it.
