Kālayaśas (畺良耶舍, 383–442) means time renown (時稱).

He was from India and was accomplished in the Vinaya and the Abhidharma, especially in meditation.

In 424, the first year of the Yuanjia (元嘉) years of the Liu Song Dynasty (劉宋, 420–79), he went to Jianye (建業), present-day Nanjing, Jiangsu Province, and stayed at the Daolin Ashram (道林精舍), near the Zhong Mountain (鍾山).

He translated, from Sanskrit into Chinese, the Sūtra of Visualization of Amitāyus Buddha (T12n0365) and the Sūtra of Visualization of Bodhisattvas Medicine King and Medicine Superior (T20n1161).

In 442, he visited some areas of Sichuan Province and expounded the Dharma to the multitudes. He died soon after his return, at the age of sixty.
