Shambhala by svet-svet Shambhala by svet-svet
Shambhala. Ultra Fractal 5 (background too:) ).

:meditation:

In Tibetan Buddhist tradition, Shambhala (also spelled Shambala or Shamballa; Tibetan: བདེ་འབྱུང་; Wylie: bde 'byung, pron. De-jung) is a mythical kingdom hidden somewhere in Inner Asia. It is mentioned in various ancient texts, including the Kalachakra Tantra and the ancient texts of the Zhang Zhung culture which predated Tibetan Buddhism in western Tibet. The Bön scriptures speak of a closely related land called Olmolungring.

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. It was in this form that the Shambhala myth reached the West, where it influenced non-Buddhist as well as Buddhist spiritual seekers — and, to some extent, popular culture in general.

beautiful. May I feature it in a blog post on Agni Yoga, the non-Buddhist tantric high yoga? and credit you, of course.

Stunning. 
May I use it in a free webinar about the Kalachakra and that We are the Wheel of Time. In other words, the new world ethos must be born from each person living responsibly from the well-being for all beings. Please let me know. Peace!
