1. According to the tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, there are three meanings to the idea of Shambhala. According to its outer meaning, Shambhala was a geographic location, a seat of spiritual inspiration where the Lord Buddha Shakyamuni taught the Kalachakra Tantra (the Tantra of the Wheel of Time). According to its inner meaning, Shambhala is the Dharma or Heart Charkra, located in the heart of all sentient beings. It is the symbol for mind, completing the trinity of the body, the speech and the mind. According to its secret meaning, the Shambhala is Tathagatagarbha (the Buddha Nature), which is the essence of all things. It transcends existence and non-existence, and is the ground of both samsara and nirvana. According to the Kalachakra Tantra, in this Dark Age, the Lala-Desum (the Three Lords of Materialism, namely : the Lord of Form, the Lord of Speech and the Lord of Mind) will extend their power and seduction, enslaving the human mind with psychological and spiritual materialism. When Shambhala is finally acknowledged, in other words, when sentient beings start to know their own selves and when Buddha Nature shines through, the king of Shambhala Rigden Dorje Nonpo will wage the war against and subdue the Lala-Desum, so that the strategies of the Three Lords of Materialism will become irrelevant and the teachings of the Kalachakra Tantra will be realized.
