Lignée Shambhala

Historique[modifier | modifier le code] En 1982, le groupe d’étude du Dharma de Paris est fondé par une dizaine de personnes qui se réunissent dans l’appartement d’un couple d’américains étudiants de Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoché. En 1989, le groupe loue un modeste local rue du Chemin-Vert, qui devient le siège de Dharmadhatu Paris. En 1995 un nouveau pas est franchi avec l’installation du Centre Shambhala de Paris rue Titon. Le centre déménagea en 2010 rue Eugène-Varlin[1]. Shambhala (mythe)

Shambhala (mythe)

Le mythe de Shambhala, Shambhalla, Shambala ou Shamballa, d'origine hindo-bouddhiste, semble avec les personnages qui s'y rattachent être un creuset où se rassemblent toutes les croyances et les religions de l'humanité[réf. nécessaire]. Shambalha (tibétain bde byung) est un pays mythique, dépositaire de l'enseignement du kalachakra qui fut transmis par le Bouddha à la demande de son roi Suchandra. Il est décrit dans le Tantra Kalachakra et ses commentaires. Selon le 14e Dalai Lama[2], c'est une terre pure terrestre qui ne peut cependant pas être située sur une carte ; seuls y ont accès ceux qui ont acquis le karma convenable. Selon le tantra, le 25e roi de Shambhala reviendra dans le monde[3] pour en chasser les forces obscures et établir un âge d'or.

Le thème du royaume parfait dissimulé dans l’Himalaya existe aussi dans le bön : il s’agit en l’occurrence du berceau de cette religion. Shambhala France.

History[edit] Shambhala was founded in 1969 by Samuel Bercholz[1] and Michael Fagan, in Berkeley, California. Its books are distributed by Penguin Random House. In 1976 Shambhala moved to Boulder, Colorado to be near the Naropa Institute. In 1986 Shambhala moved to Boston. Chögyam Trungpa. Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche (Wylie: Chos rgyam Drung pa; February 28, 1939 – April 4, 1987) was a Buddhist meditation master and holder of both the Kagyu and Nyingma lineages, the eleventh Trungpa tülku, a tertön, supreme abbot of the Surmang monasteries, scholar, teacher, poet, artist, and originator of a radical re-presentation of Shambhala vision.

Chögyam Trungpa

Recognized both by Tibetan Buddhists and by other spiritual practitioners and scholars[1][2] as a preeminent teacher of Tibetan Buddhism, he was a major, albeit controversial, figure in the dissemination of Tibetan Buddhism to the West,[3] founding Vajradhatu and Naropa University and establishing the Shambhala Training method. Among his contributions are the translation of a large number of Tibetan texts,[4] the introduction of the Vajrayana teachings to the West, and a presentation of the Buddhadharma largely devoid of ethnic trappings.

Biography[edit] Early years[edit] Early teachings in the West[edit] Shambhala Training. Shambhala Training is a secular approach to meditation developed by Tibetan Buddhist teacher Chogyam Trungpa and his students.[1][2] It is based on what Trungpa calls Shambhala Vision, which sees enlightened society as not purely mythical, but as realizable by people of all faiths through practices of mindfulness/awareness, non-aggression, and sacred outlook.[3] He writes: The Shambhala Training teachings cover art, society, and politics and the goal of creating an enlightened society.

That goal is presented as not solely a social and political process, but one requiring individuals to develop an awareness of the basic goodness and inherent dignity of themselves, of others, and of the everyday details of the world around them. This is facilitated by cultivating gentleness and bravery.[5] Shambhala. In Tibetan Buddhist and Indian Hindu/Buddhist traditions, Shambhala (also spelled Shambala or Shamballa; Tibetan: བདེ་འབྱུང་; Wylie: bde 'byung, pron. de-jung; Chinese: 香巴拉; pinyin: xiāngbālā) is a kingdom hidden somewhere in Inner Asia.


It is mentioned in various ancient texts, including the Kalachakra Tantra[2] and the ancient texts of the Zhang Zhung culture which predated Tibetan Buddhism in western Tibet. The Bön[3] scriptures speak of a closely related land called Olmolungring. Hindu texts such as Vishnu Purana mention Shambhala as the birth place of Kalki, the final incarnation of Vishnu who will usher in a new Golden Age (Satya Yuga).[4] Whatever its historical basis, 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.

In the Buddhist Kalachakra teachings[edit] Shambhala is ruled over by Lord Maitreya. Manjushri Yashas (Tib.
