Kalachakra is rarity as it is an empowerment offered to the general public despite being one of the most complex Buddhist teaching out there. Proper Kalachakra tantric initiation is required for the its practice like all the other Buddhist tantric systems. The receiver of the Kalachakra empowerment must possess certain qualities conducive for the smooth initiations into Kalachakra Teaching.
An ideal disciple should have experience of the three principal aspects of the Mahayana graded path: renunciation of Samsara, Bodhichitta, and understanding of Emptiness or at least be be drawn to these concepts intellectually and spiritually.
The most important of the three aspects is Bodhichitta, the desire for true, perfect enlightenment for the sake of others.
Therefore, the primary mindset of a Kalachakra initiation recipient should reflect the thought "For the sake of all sentient beings I must achieve the state of Shri Kalachakra. Then I will be able to establish all other sentient beings in the state of Shri Kalachakra as well".
