One of the most beautiful legends is that of the sacred hidden land of Shambhala. In Sanskrit, it means a “place of peace”. To some, it is a symbol of the highest spirituality the soul could hope to achieve. For others, it is a “mythical kingdom hidden in the Himalayas”, a place within our own planet. According to ancient texts, it refers to Shambhala as a physical place but that it may also be a spiritual place that could exist in another dimension.
According to the fourteenth Dalai Lama in a speech he gave in 1985:
"Although those with special affiliation may actually be able to go there through their karmic connection, nevertheless it is not a physical place that we can actually find. We can only say that it is a pure land, in the human realm. And unless one has the merit and the actual karmic association, one cannot actually arrive there."
Whatever the truth may be, Shambhala is a source of inspiration. A place where only the ‘enlightened’ can go, a place of harmony, a pure land that we could aspire to arrive to one day, physically, mentally or spiritually.
