The Kalacakratantra: The Chapter on the Individual together with the Vimalaprabha
The Kalacakratantra: The Chapter on the Individual together with the Vimalaprabha

About This Publication

This is the first complete English translation of the second chapter of the esoteric Buddhist Kalacakratantra text, and its eleventh-century commentary, the Stainless Light (Vimalaprabha) , often accorded pride of place as the first volume of the Tibetan Tanjur. This chapter elaborates the human “individual” in terms of the cosmic human who embodies the cosmos within, showing the homology of macrocosm and microcosm, the outer and inner aspects of the person. The translation is supplemented with copious references to Tibetan commentaries, and includes the first critical edition of the Mongolian version of the second chapter.
