Bhagavad Gita talks about KAlachakra. In English it can also be interpreted as Eternal Return. The etymology is as:

KAla = time, Chakra = cycle (i.e. duration)

The time passes in a circular motion. In a given cycle, all the unique events will happen once. In the next/past cycles (frequency), the same events only occur.
e.g. You will be asking this Qn in every cycle and I will be answering them. Same is true for all the events of your/mine/others' lives.

BG 8.17 - Knowing that thousand eras constitute a day of Brahman, [and] thousand eras complete a night, are the people who know day, [and] night.
BG 8.18 - On arrival of day, all manifestations originate from "Unmanifest"; On arrival of night they annihilate into [what is] known as "Unmanifest" only.
BG 8.19 - This world of beings only happens again & again; Annihilates upon arrival of night, [and] originates upon arrival of day.
BG 9.10 - Under "My" supervision, the Prakruti produces moving & non-moving [beings]; Due to this reason the world revolves
