Week in the Shambala II


a week in the Shambala II
Tibet. 2007
Shambhala gradually came to be seen as a Buddhist Pure Land, a fabulous kingdom whose reality is visionary or spiritual as much as physical or geographic. It was in this form that the Shambhala myth reached the West, where it influenced non-Buddhist as well as Buddhist spiritual seekers — and, to some extent, popular culture in general. Commonly it is understood to be a “place of peace/tranquility/happiness”. Shambhala has its own independent basis in human wisdom that does not belong to East or West, or to any one culture or religion.
