The Kalachakra Mandala painting is a representation of the abode of the deity named Kalachakra who holds the secrets of time and enlightenment in his possession. Through meditation on the 2D, 3D or mental image of the Kalachakra one gains deep knowledge and insight into the universe and the immortality of the soul.

At Sacred Art of Nepal, we carry a variety of Kalachakra 2D paintings. These paintings are made according to very strictly defined geometrical principles. The sacred geometry of the Kalachakra gives it power. The viewer contemplating the painting can transcend space and time and enter a meditative state that is the timeless abode of Lord Kalachakra.
Placing the Kalachakra Mandala in the home or office is a prayerful reminder to keep material life in perspective and to make personal growth and spiritual development a priority. Browse our Geometrical Painting Collection to view all of the Kalachakra Mandalas we currently are offering. Enjoy!
