Shambhala

Shambhala
In Tibetan Buddhist and Hindu traditions, Shambhala (also spelled Shambala or Shamballa; Sanskrit: शंभाल; 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 (4.24) mention the village Shambhala as the birthplace 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.

Sanat Kumara Shamballah is said by the adherents to the Ascended Master Teachings, to be a floating city[disambiguation needed] manifested on the etheric plane somewhere above the Gobi Desert in the borderlands of Mongolia.[4][5] The Great White Brotherhood is a spiritual 'fraternity' of Ascended Beings, including Lord Sanat Kumara, long since dedicated to the eventual Salvation of Mankind and the establishment of Divine Law again in this Three-dimensional reality. According to Elizabeth Van Buren, the Brotherhood once maintained (earthly) headquarters hidden in a remote valley near a sacred lake in old Tibet, until relatively recently, when, possibly due to the surmised threat of Communist China, they withdrew, allegedly through subterranean tunnels to an alternative earthly location in Peru, where they are still reported as having an earth base (circa 1985).[6] Sanat Kumara in Hinduism[edit] Sanat Kumara appears as a rishi in the Hindu religious text the Chandogya Upanishad.

ALL AND EVERYTHING: Ten Books in Three Series Gurdjieff International Review by G. I. Gurdjieff FIRST SERIES: Three books under the title of “An Objectively Impartial Criticism of the Life of Man,” or, “Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson.” Beyul Guru Padmasambhava forecasted beyul while in the presence of Tibetan King Trisong Detsen and others at Samye Monastery :– “in the future when there will be warfare, strife, and difficult circumstances in the world, good people and dharma practitioners should travel to ‘Beyuls’ or hidden valleys situated south of the Tibetan Himalayan range for refuge.” In Buddhism, sacred environments are places to deeply enter the world, and to avoid escaping it. The qualities inherent in such places reveal the interconnectedness of all life and deepen awareness of the spirit and mind's hidden regions. Visiting beyul with good motivation and appropriate merit, the pilgrim can learn to see the world differently from the way it commonly appears, developing and enhancing the Buddhist virtues of wisdom and compassion.

George Gurdjieff George Ivanovich Gurdjieff /ˈɡɜrdʒiˌɛf/ (January 13, 1866-1877?)[1]|- October 29, 1949), also commonly referred to as Georges Ivanovich Gurdjieff and G. I. Gurdjieff, was an influential spiritual teacher of the early to mid-20th century who taught that most humans live their lives in a state of hypnotic "waking sleep", but that it is possible to transcend to a higher state of consciousness and achieve full human potential. Gurdjieff developed a method for doing so, calling his discipline "The Work"[2] (connoting "work on oneself") or "the Method".[3] According to his principles and instructions,[4] Gurdjieff's method for awakening one's consciousness is different from that of the fakir, monk or yogi, so his discipline is also called (originally) the "Fourth Way".[5] At one point, he described his teaching as being "esoteric Christianity".[6]

Kunlun Mountains The Kunlun Mountains (simplified Chinese: 昆仑山; traditional Chinese: 崑崙山; pinyin: Kūnlún Shān; Wade–Giles: K'un1-lun2 Shan1, pronounced [kʰu̯ə́nlu̯ə̌n ʂán]; Mongolian: Хөндлөн Уулс Hundlun) are one of the longest mountain chains in Asia, extending more than 3,000 km. In the broadest sense, it forms the northern edge of the Tibetan Plateau south of the Tarim Basin and the Gansu Corridor and continues east south of the Wei River to end at the North China Plain. The exact definition of this range seems to vary. An old source[1] uses Kunlun to mean the mountain belt that runs across the center of China, that is, Kunlun in the narrow sense, Altyn Tagh, Qilian Mountains and Qin Mountains. A recent source [2] has the Kunlun forming most of the south side of the Tarim Basin and then continuing east south of the Altyn Tagh. Sima Qian (Shiji, scroll 123) says that Emperor Wu of Han sent men to find the source of the Yellow River and gave the name Kunlun to the mountains at its source.

The Search for Shambhala - A Conversation with James Redfield ATLANTIS RISING - Number 21 from AtlantisRising Website recovered through WayBackMachine Website For thousands of years rumors and reports have circulated that somewhere beyond Tibet, among the icy peaks and secluded valleys of Central Asia, there lies an inaccessible paradise, a place of universal wisdom and ineffable peace called Shambhala. James Hilton wrote about it in Lost Horizon, Hollywood portrayed it in the 1960s film Shangri-La, and recent films such as Kundun, Little Buddha and Seven Years in Tibet allude to the magical Utopia. The Sanskrit name means “place of peace, of tranquility.”

Violet Flame (1) The violet flame is a considerate flame. It is a loving flame. It is a grateful flame. It is a flame that has its own momentum of self-luminous, intelligent substance, containing and embracing the very knowledge of alchemy itself. It may be difficult to understand how a flame can have consciousness, but remember, a flame is the manifestation of God. A flame is the manifestation of all who have ever served it, even as a mantra embodies the momentum of all who have ever given it. - Saint Germain, 1988 Sepher Yetzirah "The Book of Formation" <div align="center" style="font-size:smaller">Click here for: &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <a href="sitemap_english.htm">Sitemap</a> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <a href="events.html">Events and Activities</a> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <a href=" target="_blank">German Page</a> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <a href=" target="_blank">English Forum</a> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <a href="faq_english.html" target="_blank">FAQ</a> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <a href=" target="_blank">Home</a> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <a href="link_to_us.html" target="_blank">link to this page!</a></div> (Translated from the Hebrew by Wm.

Chakravartin Chakravartin/Chakraborty (Sanskrit: चक्रवर्ति; Pali: cakkavatti) is an ancient Indian term used to refer to an ideal universal ruler, who rules ethically and benevolently over the entire world. Such a ruler's reign is called sarvabhauma. It is a bahuvrīhi, literally meaning "whose wheels are moving", in the sense of "whose chariot is rolling everywhere without obstruction". It can also be analyzed as an 'instrumental bahuvrīhi: "through whom the wheel is moving" in the meaning of "through whom the Dharmacakra ("Wheel of the Dharma) is turning" (most commonly used in Buddhism and Hinduism). In Buddhism and Jainism, three types of Chakravartins are distinguished:[1] Chakravala Chakraborty a ruler over all four continents postulated in ancient Indian cosmographyDvipa Chakraborty a ruler over only one of four continentsPradesa Chakraborty: a ruler over only part of a continent.

Utopia on the Roof of the World Svetoslav Roerich, Portrait of Nicholas Roerich, 1937. Courtesy the Nicholas Roerich Museum, New York. Somewhere high up in the Himalayas, surrounded by a range of snow-capped peaks treacherous enough to defeat even the most intrepid mountaineer, lies a kingdom of unparalleled splendor, peace, and tranquility. This place, known as Shambhala, is home to palaces built of rare stone and pure gold and bedecked with a lapidary’s laundry list of precious gems, glasses, and colored corals. There are lakes where Shambhala’s noble, healthy, and prosperous subjects cavort in boats carved from jewels, and a lush sandalwood grove where they can peacefully contemplate an enormous, three-dimensional Mandala of unparalleled opulence.

How to Communicate with your Spirit Guides - Forever Conscious I started communicating with my spirit guides when I was very young. Of course, at the time I had no idea what a spirit guide was and chalked the “voices” I would hear in my head and heart to be the voice of God. I had a physical description for what God looked like too. He was an olive skin man with black hair and wore an orange T-shirt. To this day, I still have a clear visual of this man in my mind and although I have no idea where this divine image came from, I know now that God does not have a face.
