The Kālacakra deity represents a buddhahood and thus omniscience. Since Kālacakra is time and everything is under the influence of time, Kālacakra knows all. Kālacakri, his spiritual consort and complement, is aware of everything that is timeless, not time-bound or out of the realm of time. In Yab-Yum, they are temporality and atemporality conjoined. Similarly, the wheel is without beginning or end.
The Kalachakra Tantra is one of the main tantras practiced by the Sarma or New Translations schools. It has a unique presentation of cosmology. His Holiness the Dalai Lama has given the transmission of the Kalachakra many times around the world for the sake of world peace.
