M any seek it but only few have found it. There is no map to show the way.
They call it heaven on earth. “Shambhala” a place of peace and serenity.
But where is this secret land?
Is it on the peaks of the Himalayas in Tibet, in Gobi desert in Mongolia or in lake Baikal in Russia?
A journey seeking for a place, which finally might be held inside us.
This inner journey of exploration starts with innocent intentions. It ends however in protest at the corruption of our humanity. Revealed In our age of thriving globalization, is the absurd alliance of politics and religion that exploits the expression of human individuality in the name of profit.
Filmed over a thirteen-year period in Tibet, Mongolia, Russia, Israel, Palestine, Greece, Italy and Vatican City, “Shambhala” transports us to the varied worlds of sacred grounds, war zones and natural wonders.
“Many people have tried to reach Shambhala uninvited.
Some of them have disappeared forever.
Very few of them have actually, discovered the holy place”
(Seeking for Shambhala), 1928
S hambhala, a heaven on earth. They call it, amongst other things, the hollow ground; the magical land of immortals, the land of white waters, shining spirits and living gods and the throne to the king of the world.
Τhere are many speculations as to where this land lies. Many rumors claim that the kingdom called Shambhala used to cover the biggest part of central Asia in Lake Baikal in Russia. Rumors, legends and stories about an arcane heaven on earth, in the heart of Asia, had been reaching the West since Greco-Roman times. It is said that the Greek sophist, Philostratus, followed in the footsteps of the great mystic Apollonius of Tyana, who had travelled to the peaks of the Himalayas in Tibet and to a place there called ‘the forbidden land of the gods’. Andrew Tomas presents this secret paradise as an international centre of the great mystics, where the invisible scientific and philosophical brotherhood operate in the isolation of the Himalayas.
About Shambhala, opinions are divided between various authors and seekers. In a book by Madam Helena Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society, references are made to the legendary Shambhala, an ethereal state in the Gobi desert in Mongolia and the seat of the great spiritual teachers. An ancient legend also mentions that a Mongolian tribe hid in the underground land in order to avoid the hordes of Genghis Khan.
