The four intermediary kalpas (Tib. བར་བསྐལ་ཉི་ཤུ་, bar kal nyishu, Wyl. bar bskal nyi shu) are the four periods of a great kalpa:

  1. formation (ཆགས་པའི་བསྐལ་པ་, chags pa'i bskal pa),
  2. duration (གནས་པའི་བསྐལ་པ་, gnas pa'i bskal pa),
  3. destruction (འཇིག་པའི་བསྐལ་པ་, 'jig pa'i bskal pa) and
  4. voidness (སྟོང་པའི་བསྐལ་པ་, stong pa'i bskal pa).
