Called the "Great Black", Mahakala is unique to Tibet and is called Mong-po, and was accepted as a tutelary deity of Mongolia in the 17th century under the name Yeke Gara, under Tibetan influence.

Its Chinese name, Dahei Wang or Dahei Tian黒 is only the transcription of the Sanskrit name maha (grand-Da in Chinese), Kala (black-Hei) adding Wang meaning king. Dahei Wang黑 The Great Black King, or Dahei Tian Great Black Sky.

Mahakala has never been the subject of a cult in China itself.

In Japan , mainly in the Shingon school, where its image seems to come from Mongolia, and answer黒ing the name of Daikokuten Great black sky) or simply Daikoku (Great Black), it does not have the same symbolism and was revered from the 17th century as one of the 7 deities of happiness with Ebisu, Benzai Ten, Bishamon ten, Fukurokuju, Jurôjin and Hotei, a motley group of deities belonging to both Buddhism and Chinese Taoism artificially created in the 17th century by the Tenkai monk died in 1643 (Postume name Jigen Daishi)

In Tibet Mahakala is both a Dharmapala and a protective god (Yi dam).

The Dharmapala are the protectors of the Dharma, guardians of the teachings.

This name denoting the deities assuming the task of protecting practitioners and teachings in vajrayana and dzogchen.

Kalachakra tantra is a complex meditation practice that belongs to the highest class of tantra, anuttara yoga. The Kalachakra literature, in addition to providing a profound method to overcome the negative effects of compulsive karma and achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all, includes an encyclopedia of ancient Indian sciences of universal utility, whatever our beliefs.

Kalachakra means "cycles of time," time being a measure of change both at the external level of the world and the universe and at the internal level of the body. As such, it can be measured in many ways. At the external level there are the cycles of the orbits of the planets, the months and seasons of the year, the phases of the moon, the hours of the day and so on, not to mention the historical cycles and periods of war and peace. Internally there are cycles of life periods (early childhood, childhood, adulthood, and old age), menstrual cycles, sleep cycles and circadian rhythms, the number of breaths per day and so on. These external and internal cycles are closely parallel. Just as stars, galaxies and universes go through cycles of formation, endurance, dissipation and extinction, human beings undergo the cycles of birth, life, old age and death, as well as a bardo, or intermediate period. Moreover, both internal and external cycles are repeated without beginning through the perpetual rebirth of universes and lives.

Our experience of these external and internal time cycles is shaped by our karma. Karma is the mental factor that compulsively drives us to do, say or think something, and is based on ignorance and confusion about the effects of our conduct and how we, others and all things exist. According to some explanations, karma also includes the compulsive energy with which we act and speak, as well as the compulsive form of our actions and the compulsive sound of our word. From our karmic behaviors, we experience recurrent and uncontrollable rebirths, subject to the ravages of external and internal time cycles. It also results in us experiencing these cycles with the sufferings of new cycles of all kinds of evils, and with a type of happiness that is never sustainable or satisfying. Kalachakra adds to this description the cycles of the winds of karma, which are responsible for the appearances (mental holograms) generated by our mental activity during our waking, dreaming, deep sleep cycles, and during the occasional experience of the paroxysm of orgasmic ecstasy.
There is a third cycle of time, known as the "alternative Kalachakra", which includes a cycle of tantric initiation (transmission), two stages of practice and the attainment of Buddhahood. This cycle is not only an alternative to external and internal kalachakras, but also an antidote to their harmful influence. After all, if our energy, clarity of mind and moods are influenced by meteorology, the amount of sun per day, hormonal changes, age degeneration, etc., it not only hinders our ability to achieve our own goals, it also prevents us from being effective in helping others.

Kalachakra is unique in many ways. Indeed, in its presentation of the external cycles of time, the kalachakra literature offers complex mathematical formulas for calculating the positions of the sun, moon and planets, the duration of the days of the summer solstice, the time of eclipses, the lunar calendar and astrological horoscopes. It even includes engineering instructions for the construction of useful mechanical devices in times of war and peace. The discussion of internal cycles offers detailed descriptions of the body's subtle energy system with its chakras, channels and drops, added to many aspects integrated into Tibetan medical tradition, as well as an analysis of sanskrite phonetics.

The initiation of Kalachakra and the two stages of practice are also unique, with many characteristic features that differ from other tantras of anuttara yoga. The initiation, respecting the parallelism between the internal and external kalachakras, is conferred following stages that correspond to the stages of life and is modeled on them. The palace of the mandala and the body of the main Buddha figure have the same proportions as the model of the universe and the human body. Because of the complexity of the external and internal worlds and the need for full purification of both, the mandala contains more figures than almost all other tantra systems. The various sets of figures among the 722 in and around the palace correspond to ensembles such as the number of days and months in a lunar year, as well as the senses, elements and factors of the aggregates of the body and mind. In addition, the final stages of practice with the subtle energy system open a unique mode of access to the mind of clear-light (the most subtle level of mental activity) and a unique type of subtle body (an empty form) that serves as a prototype for the body shapes of a Buddha.
