Kalachakra means Time-Wheel, as "Kala" is Sanskrit for Time and "Chakra" (or Cakra) is Wheel in Sanskrit. It is also translated as Time-Cycles. Much in this tradition revolves around the concept of time and cycles ; from the cycles of the planets, to the cycles of our breath and the practice Audience of controlling the most subtle energies within one's body on the path to enlightenment. The Kalachakra deity represents omniscience as everything is under the influence of time; he is time and therefore knows all. Similarly, the Wheel is beginning less and endless.

Kalachakra is of three types: External Kalachakra, Internal Kalachakra and Alternative Kalachakra. External Kalachakra deals with external world systems such as the movement of the Sun, Moon and other constellations. Internal Kalachakra refers to the internal structure of a human being such as the channels, energies and regenerative fluids. The Alternative Kalachakra refers to the generation and completion stages of the spiritual path of Kalachakra that purify the objects to be purified, which in this context are the external and internal Kalachakra.
