In the Sanskrit tradition, Antarakalpa (intermediary kalpa) can refer to:
- one of the four phases of a mahākalpa, which are the kalpas of formation, duration, destruction, and voidness.
- the twenty periods of time that compose each of these four periods, and each is subdivided into periods of increase and decrease (of the merit and life-span of beings living during that period).
