Kalachakra Monogram
For Personal Usage Only
Sacred Art - Kalachakra monogram
This is an image of the monogram (or "seed syllable") that is perhaps the best known symbol of the Kalacakra system of Tibetan Tantric Buddhism. It is a combination of ten letters and parts of letters in stylised Indian Lantsa characters. The symbolism is based on the fifth verse, the vajra-kaya, of the Kalacakra Tantra. Multiple meanings are attributed to the letters, including a reference to the Kalacakra mantra. This one is from a mani wall that is part of the Chendebji chorten in Bhutan. It is carved on slate and highlighted with gold paint.
