After a very long time, Shambhala is the topic that inspired me to write on it. The secretly hidden heavenly aesthetic empire has got more to know about, out of mind’s eye.
Shambhala – A beautiful mythical kingdom far away from our imaginations and living world, is assumed to be existed somewhere in between Himalayan region where there is no hope of reaching.
Shangri-La or Shambhala, a longing attraction for many since hundreds of years to discover, is the land of happiness which has the ultimate living conditions where there is no place for suffering, old age, grief and sin. The fictionally sounding portrait of the city leaves us under the impression to be unreal. Or is it unapproachable existent land?
The reference to Shambhala is found in many of the ancient manuscripts. In Kalachakra, it’s said to be the birthplace of Kalki, the 10th incarnation of Lord Vishnu who will guide in Golden Age. While many stories are heard, the most reachable one is related to Mahabharatha. After a great triumph of Pandavas in Kurukshetra, they approach Lord Krishna, leaving rein and responsibility for the kingdom. In accordance to the preach about this city by Krishna and the terrific circumstances they have to undergo to reach, Pandavas along with Dharmaraja start heading to Shambhala for the want to live the glorious fanatical life. At the final destination, only Dharmaraja managed to cross the obstacles and landed up at Shambala.
The alluring description raised the curiosity among many scientists and researchers surrendering their life in gathering information about this Land of White Waters. Many teams including the Russsian Military Force and the Hitler’s army conceded regarding Heaven of Earth having the extraordinary technology not less than any developed nation with the people being 12 feet tall and with the power of telepathy making it an unusual land of Gods. The 8 petal Lotus shaped kingdom is out of words scented all over, spiritually dedicated where the truth rules and the ecstasy prevails.
An indestructible zeal with mental stability and a blessed boon, ready to face the terrible situations are the only ones who are eligible to visit Shambhala. Some of the Buddist manuscripts provide a few indications while reaching this unreachable land. As given, a desert with no end, Gobi desert has to be crossed first followed by the range of mountains with no surety of hitting the destination.
A monk in the Himalayas points his forefinger to sky far away, when asked how to reach Shambhala. It is the state of mind driven towards spirituality and purity where we can resist our greed of having more by finding happiness in what we have. Doesn’t that make every place in our world a SHAMBHALA?
