According to the legends, Shambhala is believed to be an amazing place where all the inhabitants are enlightened, a land where only the pure of heart live, a place of light - where love, happiness and wisdom reigns and where suffering, poverty or old age does not exist. It is also referred to as a mythical paradise spoken of in ancient texts, including the Kalachakra Tantra. As with several concepts in the Kalachakra, the idea of Shambhala is said to have external, internal or alternative meanings. Irrespective of these, the essential and remarkable message of Shambhala is that spiritual supreme realization, ultimate spiritual liberation, is not an abstract, untouched goal but it can be reached through sincere aspiration and spiritual effort sustained right here and now. Shambhala can be considered a spiritual Sun around which the entire planetary wisdom is gravitating: the greatest religions, the greatest spiritual traditions, the esoteric divinely inspired currents, all authentic spiritual schools and paths are inspired by Shambhala. From this perspective Shambhala represents the Spiritual Centre of our planet. The lecture will contain spiritual testimonies and will include a short meditation that is relevant to its content.
