20. TWELTH KALKI KING......Surya....Nyima (Who was the 12th Propagator...Kalachakra to India during the 12th Propagator)...

19. (12) Surya/Suryapada, (Wonang) Nyima (1027-1127) All-Pervading, Radiant Jewel Light

"According to the 'Bro tradition, the Kalachakra was brought to India during the reign of Kalki Shripala. He taught to Kalachakrapada (who had been born in North Bengal). The Kalachakra system first appeared in India at the beginning of the 11th century. (1012 AD). This dates forms the basis for all the astronomical calculations in the Kalachakra laghukaranam." (Newman...1985)

Surya [[[nyi ma]])12th rigden, Surya, comes to the throne. In this year the 1st Rabjung of the conventional system begins with the Fire Rabbit year, and after that, the 403 years of the Lalos entering "me mkha'a rgya mtsho" [403 years] as above, begin with the Rabjung count.From Nyima there are 14 rigdens In the year of rigden Nyima coming to the throne, the Kaalachakra Abridged Tantra goes to the noble land of India. The astrological conventions of the 1st rabjung etc. are also engendered. The formula astrologers who first calculate the years of the rabjung are as well known as the 1st planet, the sun. That is 403 years from the beginning of the formula astrology. "Me mkha'a rgya mtsho", 403, equals the number of years that Gyamtso Namgyal and Gyalka are on the throne of Shambhala

The 11th rigden is Aja. He sits on the throne and grasps the leadership of action. He sits on the throne 221 years, after he teaches the Ddharma, Then the 12th rigden, Surya, comes to the throne. In this year the 1st Rabjung of the conventional system begins with the Fire Rabbit year, and after that, the 403 years of the Lalos entering "me mkha'a rgya mtsho" [403 years] as above, begin with the Rabjung count. By trying to give the count from the past years to the present, mistakes about the year will arise, and it is futile. After rigden Surya

As for these 8, on the asura Lalo family bestowing fear, they have rajas qualities' power and the a'byung po spirit

32. (25) Raudra Chakri/Rudra Chakrin, Dragpo Khorlo Chan or Rigden Dragpo (2327 - 2427, defeat of barbarians in 2424) Wrathful One with the Wheel.

In the tradition itself, the suitable things in this case are the 32 generations of seat holders. The explanation of birthplaces is clear and lucid. Adding the 2 sons of Rigden Raudrachakrin Drakpo and ÷sung is useless. The Rigdens other than Rigden Raudrachakrin are of the asura family because of bestowing fear. If 1 thinks this explanation is not suitable, Palden Raudrachakrin having a short spear bestows fear in the asura family. So it is taught.

At this time of fighting with the Lalos, dwelling on Mount Kailash, from the divinely built city Kaalaapa the wheel turner rigden Drakpa comes forth with his army.

It is said that Shiva, and the other 12 great gods with their retinues will give assisting troops to the rigden Raudrachakrin....These gods are: Hari (Vishnu), Nairrti, Vayu, Yama, Agni, Shanmukha, Kubera, Shakra (Indra), Brahma, Rudra (Shiva), Samudra, and Ganesha.

Since Rigden Raudrachakrin then arrives after the completion of 25 rigdens' reigns, he is said to be the 26th. Rigden Manjushrikiirti is said to have remained 200 years and Raudrachakrin 100. The other rigdens are explained to have taught the dharma for 60 years each.

At the end of his reign he will appoint his elder son Brahma as the lord of Shambhala and his younger son Suresha as master of the lands south of the Sita River. Having done this, Raudra Chakri, last of the Kalkis will return to the abode of bliss from which he came. The son of Brahma

25th is Raudrachakrin.

Kalachakra List of Prophets

In the Kalachakra text's list of Prophets we find mention of the "White-Clad One", probably referring to Mani. Buddhists believe that Buddha himself gave this Root Kalachakra Tantra in the ninth century B.C. and that the First Kalki King of Shambhala wrote The Abridged Kalachakra Tantra in the second century B.C. The Kalachakra Tantra appeared in India in the late tenth century and was probably written about this time. It predicts the coming of an Islamic Messiah figure named Mahdi about 2424 AD. In the Kalachakra text we read:

"Adam, Noah, Abraham, and five others - Moses, Jesus, the White-Clad One, Muhammad, and Mahdi - with tamas, are in the asura-naga caste. The eighth will be the blinded one. The seventh will manifestly come to the city of Baghdad in the land of Mecca, (the place) in this world where a portion of the asura (caste) will have the form of the powerful, merciless mlecchas." - Verse I.154 from The Abridged Kalachakra Padmini in his commentary says that "The White-Clad One" is Mahamayin, or Mani:

If you ask who propagated the Dharma of the mlecchas, it says, "Adam, Noah, and Abraham of the asura (caste) and, from the naga caste, the five others with tamas: Moses, this one, and The White-Clad One, Muhammad, and The Emanation. That eighth one will be the blinded one. The seventh will manifestly come to the cities of Baghdad and so on in the land of Mecca." Those with these names of non-Buddhists, and so on, will propagate the Dharma of the asuras. Among these, the one called "The White-Clad One" is Mahamayin. That one will propagate the Dharma of the asuras and so on in the cities of the land of Mecca and so on. If you ask what kind of land is that, it says, "(It is the place) in this world where the asura caste will have the form of the powerful, merciless mlecchas." A Commentary on Difficult Points Called "Padmini" The Order of O:N:E: accepts Adam, Noah, Jesus and Mani the White-Clad One as true Apostles and Messengers of Light. The teachings that cluster around the name of Abraham, Moses and Mohammad are not considered part of the Living Stream of Gnosis by the Order, however.
