This is the first complete English translation of the fourth chapter of the esoteric Buddhist Kalacakratantra text, and its eleventh-century commentary, the Stainless Light. This chapter describes the Buddhist tantric practice of the stage of generation, including the instructions on the protection of the place of practice, the meditative practices of the origination of the body, and yogic practices of the stage of generation. The translation is supplemented with copious annotations and references to Tibetan commentaries and other Buddhist works.
