Shambhala, in Sanskrit, means “a place of peace, tranquility and happiness”.


In Tibetan Buddhist tradition, Shambhala is a mystical realm, hidden somewhere beyond the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas. It is described as a wonderful place, built in the shape of a lotus flower. Only individuals with appropriate karma can attain it and experience it as such. 


It is believed that Shambhala is a society in which all inhabitants have achieved enlightenment, a Buddhist “Pure Land”, whose capital is a city called Kalapa, and that people of all faiths have the chance to seek and reach this special place .
