Shambhala – The Birth Place of Kalki

Shambhala, which is a Sanskrit word meaning “place of peace” or “place of silence”, is a mythical paradise spoken of in ancient Tibetan Buddhist and Hindu traditions, including the Kalachakra Tantra and the ancient Zhangzhung texts of western Tibet & Hindu texts such as the 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).

According to legend, it is a land where only the pure of heart can live, a place where love and wisdom reigns and where people are immune to suffering, want or old age.

Shambhala is said to be the land of a thousand names. It has been called the Forbidden Land, the Land of White Waters, Land of Radiant Spirits, Land of Living Fire, Land of the Living Gods and Land of Wonders. The Hindus call it Aryavartha (‘The Land of the Worthy Ones); the Chinese know it as Hsi Tien, the Western Paradise of Hsi Wang Mu; and to the Russian Old Believers, it is known as Belovoyde. But throughout Asia, it is best known by its Sanskrit name, Shambhala, Shamballa, or Shangri-la.

Call it what you will, but let it be described as the home for immortals; a place where the Will of God is known; a celestial kingdom that holds our very destiny.

According to the Kalachakra Tantra Prophecy, a line of enlightened kings guard the highest wisdoms for the time when all spiritual values in the outside world are lost in wars and destruction.

At that time, a great king will come out of the Shambhala kingdom to defeat the forces of evil and establish the Golden Age.

The prophecy of Shambhala gives us a hint of the coming Golden Age. There will be 32 kings, each reigning for a 100 years. As their reigns pass conditions, of the world will deteriorate. Wars will break out in the pursuant of power.

Materialism will overcome spiritualism and spread over the world. Then the ‘barbarians’ who follow this ideology of power and materialism are united under one evil king, assuming there is nothing left to conquer. When this time comes, the mists will then lift to reveal the icy mountains of Shambhala.

Seeing the promised lands of Shambhala, the barbarians will then attack Shambhala with a huge army equipped with terrible weapons.

The 32nd king of Shambhala, Rudra Cakrin, ‘The Wrathful One with the Wheel’ will rise from his throne and lead a mighty host against the invaders destroying the army of barbarians.

After the battle has been won, the rule of Shambhala will cover the world, bringing in the greatest Age of all times. Food will grow without work, there will be no disease or poverty, hatred and jealousies will be replaced with love and the great saints and sages of the past will return to life to teach true wisdom of the Ages.

Tibetan religious texts tell us that the technology of Shambhala is supposed to be highly advanced; the palace contains special skylights made of lenses which serve as high-powered telescopes to study extraterrestrial life, and for hundreds of years Shambhala’s inhabitants have been using aircraft and cars that shuttle through a network of underground tunnels.

On the way to enlightenment, Shambhalans acquire such powers as clairvoyance, the ability to move at great speeds, and the ability to materialize and disappear at will.

As with many concepts in the Kalachakra, the idea of Shambhala is said to have outer, inner, and alternative meanings. The outer meaning understands Shambhala to exist as a physical place, although only individuals with the appropriate karma can reach it and experience it as such. The inner and alternative meanings refer to more subtle understandings of what Shambhala represents in terms of one’s own body and mind (inner), and during meditative practice (alternative).

These two types of symbolic explanations are generally passed on orally from teacher to student.

Over many centuries, numerous explorers and seekers of spiritual wisdom have embarked on expeditions and quests in search of the mythical paradise of Shambhala, and while many have claimed to have been there, no one has yet provided any evidence of its existence or been able to pinpoint its physical location on a map, however most references place Shambhala in the mountainous regions of Eurasia.
Ancient Zhang Zhung texts identify Shambhala with the Sutlej Valley in Punjab or Himachal Pradesh, India. Mongolians identify Shambhala with certain valleys of southern Siberia.

In Altai folklore, Mount Belukha is believed to be the gateway to Shambhala. Modern Buddhist scholars seem to conclude that Shambhala is located in the higher reaches of the Himalayas in what is now called the Dhauladhar Mountains around Mcleodganj. Some legends say that the entrance to Shambhala is hidden inside a remote, abandoned monastery in Tibet, and guarded by beings known as the Shambhala Guardians.

For some, the fact that Shambhala has never been found has a very simple explanation – many believe that Shambhala lies on the very edge of physical reality, as a bridge connecting this world to one beyond it.

Hitler’s Attempts to Find Shambala

Hitler also made attempts to locate and enter the gates of Shambhala… The idea of Shambhala and its occult knowledge was an obsession to him. The roots of his occult desires can be traced far back into his youth where he studied the occult and yoga in Vienna. The young Hitler received initiation into the American Indian Peyote Cult.

After he was introduced to The Secret Doctrine, he then turned his attention more to Theosophy. Later he joined the occult group in Germany called Ultima Thule, out of which the Nazi Party was born.

Upon assuming power, Hitler established the ministry of Ancestral Memories, headed by the Chairman of the Sanskrit Department at Munich University.

Through this connection with Sanskrit studies, the Nazis adopted the swastika, an ancient symbol of good luck and well being. Although many believe that Hitler designed this emblem it is a fact that the Hindu, Buddhist and Jain worlds had honored this symbol for thousands of years prior to the Nazi movement.

With the help of the explorer Sven Hedlin, Hitler sent several expeditions to Tibet. The Nazis claimed that although Shambhala was inaccessible to them, they also made contact and gained help from the mystical kingdom of Agartha. It was reported that the leaders held a ceremony led by a man with the keys to Argatha.

  5. Vaideesewaran says:

    A very interesting article.It is an irony that Hitler turned out to be a tyrant.

  6. Rati says:

    Why this sudden interest in what Hitler thought & did or wanted to do? And if you want to look at it through Sanatani eyes, please don’t refer to an article written by a Westerner … Everything gets mixed up – Hindusim, Buddhism, Western search, Hitler …

  7. Apurva Gaglani says:

    The land of Shambala may not have emerged yet.
    As time passes by in Kali yug, the ice will melt and sea-levels will rise for sometime till the ice cover is there. Once the ice cover goes, the risen sea levels will start diminishing due to the globally warm planet earth. When the sea level reduce, more land would open up and Shambala would emerge only then.

  8. Sandip Gupta says:

    Does this refer to Gyangunj, a place in the 4th dimension where a normal human being cannot enter. It is said that the many saints are in sadhna in this place.

  9. Mihir Pandey. says:

    Hey Probhu…
    Please come from your Kingdom to this World and save us from the Evil froces.

    This is a very timely article in respect not only of Kalki [His Avatarana] but also of changeover period to next Satyuga as mentioned in Bhagawatam, the so called Golden Age the mankind is eagerly awaiting for in the present stressful times.

    The changeover period already began in 17th century and will end in the Golden said Age as per Taratam Vani that manifested through one known by his title as Mahamati Prananath [1618-94 AD], MP in brief, and earlier through his Satguru, Devachandra ji [1581-1655 AD]. I prefer to term the Taratam Vani as Seventeenth Century Revelations as it had flowed down in the heart of MP [during period of 1657-94] from the highest level of reality of God. Referring to Gita 15: 16-20 it talks of three Purushas, supreme one being the Purushottama, who spoke through Shri Krishna who has variously referred to the highest realm as Brahm-dham, Param-dham [elsewhere in other scriptures as Brahma-pur, etc. Only thoec termed Divya Atm-vibhuteees can experience the realm.

    The Taratam Vani says there are 12000 such most developed ones, it terms as Brahm-srishties [scriptures seems to have terms them as Brahm-rishiies] who shall appear during the change-over period [to last till 29th century] anywhere in world, of all faiths. They will connect with that highest level of reality of God after they connect and grasp the divine intents of TV and collate them with scriptures of their faith. When every Brahm-srishty connects with that highest level, the experience of Purushottama shall descend down within its [his or her] heart and in my humble opinion that can be termed as the Avatarana of Kalki. In short there will be 12000 such instances of manifestation of Kalki.

    Unfortunately the TV composed of 18758 divine verses remained hidden from the society at large. It got being made available to them commencing from the decade of 1980’s. That is when I was fortunate in connecting with it. I have researched it and given a 6-part video interview under the title 17th century revelations. It can be aceesed on youtube. Thanks.

    We can see very clearly the Kali Yuga in action, as our society degenerates more and more everywhere.
    I believe.

  13. narayanan says:

    I have given to understand that the Kalki Avatara will take place somewhere else in Thambirabarani River Banks in Tirunelveli District of Tamil Nadu state. Can any one tell more about?

  14. Chandra Ravikumar says:

    The only statement that makes sense in this hotch-potch mess is
    “As with many concepts in the Kalachakra, the idea of Shambhala is said to have outer, inner, and alternative meanings.”

    However we understand it, let this be from the Bharathiya condition of our Samskrithi, and not from one alien to and at dissonance with ours. This is more damaging to Sathya/Truth than just keeping apart from it.

    When the western colonizing nations began journeying, exploring, conquering, destroying other civilizations removed from them in place and world-view, and were very successful at this, many things happened to the European, monotheistic, material focused mind and intellect. The inborn craving for mystery and adventure began searching for something different from the once “mysterious lands” that had now lost their mystery. Simultaneously they enountered civilizations that were so advanced in “other” sciences and metaphysics and spirituality, that were totally beyond their common man’s understanding and yet beckoned tothe intellectual amongst them. There were amongst these Europeans those who saw that the realnbarbarians were themselves, and not those they had conquered, had the urge to know more and do something about this.

    These and other compulsions led them into Theosophy, Eastern “occult” studies, travels in Tibet, Himalayas, Zimbabwe, Varanasi, into Mayan, Aztec, Inca heartlands and so on. There were borderline religionists, travellers and writers like Madame Blavatsky, Alexandra David-Neel, Rider Haggard, James Hilton, Nicholai Roerich etc. Much messy mis-understanding, great flamboyance and little sense was the result.

    This article is a derivative fom this messy and confused minded-ness, fit for fantasy fiction, and not for a serious forum dedicated to trying to undertand the Truth of Sanathana Dharma.

  15. rajeev says:

    Glories to lord kalki! Glories to beloved lord krishna radha rani.

    a thought provoking article. There is a lot of time to go before the ascent of lord kalki. And To know more of these sciences (brilliant creation), one certainly has to move forard in soul. I guess a realized soul will be able to get into these subtleties. Only krishna knows the creation. Just full of merciful brilliance

  16. Jayasankar. V says:

    What I heard in Pravachan of Bhagavatham that Lord Vishnu would incarnate his tenth Avataar as Kalki Avataar and originate from a place near Madurai / Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu, South India. Please recheck the facts from the exponents of Bhagavatham and correct me if I am wrong

  17. Dinesh Agrawal says:

    Shambhala or current SAMBHAL, a corrupt form of Shambhu-alya (Land of lord Shiva) is a place in Uttar Pradesh about 180 km from Delhi. This is the only place where there is a temple dedicated to Lord Kalki. Every body in this town knows that in Kali Yuga, 10th incarnation of Lord Vishnu in the name of Kalki will take place in this holy and historic town towards the culmination of Kali Yuga. Several Puranas etc. have reference to this.

  18. Kanti Shah says:

    According to Holy men Sathya Sai Baba the golden
    age of 1000 years is about to begin soon.India will
    play significant part in leading the world and Indian
    culture will spread all over the world. Let us all
    pray it comes soooner .

  19. jorge nieves says:

    The comments about Hitler using Peyote seems an absurdity to me. Even comments about him being involved with the occult demand immediate clarification and more evidence as to the veracity of this statement.

  20. varenya says:

    This Shangrila idea sounds clearly as a legend composed by wishful thinking of wisdom-lacking minds.
    In an other dimension, okay; but not on this material platform.

  21. grenada says:

    ” the Nazis adopted the swastika, an ancient symbol of good luck and well being. Although many believe that Hitler designed this emblem it is a fact that the Hindu, Buddhist and Jain worlds had honored this symbol for thousands of years prior to the Nazi movement.”

    Wrong. Nazis and india have nothing to do with this choice. This is fake “official” history.
    Swastika is a very ancient european symbol dating back (at least) to Vinca and the Danube valley (-7000 bc) Old Europe civilization. In Kiev museum there is a woman figure with swastikas carved from a mammoth tusk dating back 15000 years.
    This symbol is present in many older civilizations over the globe, including India. This curved cross is not purely from India.
    Theses articles on Hitler and Nazis have a clear purpose to accustom (transform and subject) indian people to the jewish world rulers and their religion the Shoah.

  22. K. C. Vyas says:

    May I add to my comments on my views placed on this website on 1st April to give certain historic perspective particularly in context of Bhagawatam. Shri Devachandra ji when staying in Jamanagar [Gujarat] became avid, devout devotee of Shri Krishna. He was fascinated, almost mesmerized, with His Brij- and Raasa-leelas of Bhagawatam and their esoteric spiritual truths. He was finally rewarded by God, as one can learn from his biographical accounts. He was given an audience after fourteen long years of dedicated efforts and love for Shri Krishna in the year 1618 AD. He was told that He was Shri Krishna all right but the unborn One of Aksharateeta realm [meaning Purushottama of Gita] and was assigned a task.
    The task was to locate remaining of 12000 evolved aspirants like him [Param-hamsas or the Brahm-srishties as Taratam vani calls them] and also pass on to them the spiritual truths about His ‘Swaroopa’ that He gave them then during the audience – and also kept giving him throughout his lifetime!

    Somehow this account did not spread beyond small circle of people around him and his disciple named Mahamati Prananath and their descendants called Shri Krishna Pranami Samaj [also Nijanandi Samaj]. But it is well known among this Samaj of perhaps a few million people today by way of well preserved Beetak literature of the time.

    This way the ancient text of Bhagawatam composed by Vedavyas – especially for the aspirants of Parama-hamsa caliber who were going to appear in worsening times of Kaliyuga – finally bore its fruit through Shri Devachandra ji and later through his chosen disciple, Mahamati Prananath, by way of Taratam Vani [total of 18758 divine verses that manifested from time to time during 1657-94].

    As God would have it for both, Taratam Vani [TV] and the said Beetak literature: the process of making available to world at large made an humble beginning during decade of 1980’s and is perhaps continuing still. I was fortunate in connecting with TV in the year 1995 and was fascinated with its implications. I have carried out its research and will be glad to provide any further information that I can do. I am thankful to your website for having provided me opportunity to submit my views.

  24. Arvind says:

    Hello All
    Sambhal is located in U.P. India, past capital of Prithviraj Chauhan in Moradabad Distt. now itself is going to be a district, Harihar mandal is exact place of birth of Kalki Bhagwan.

  25. Dulal Karmakar says:

    Very Nice Article. Good Work, Research But, There Are Contradictions About The Actual Birth Place Of Lord Kalki. It Is Correct, That Any Human Can’t Go There And See The Place. It May Be Visible To Them Those Who Have Gained Spiritual Power Through Meditation Or Yoga. I Have Interest In This Subject, But I Think We Can Find The Name Of The Birth Place In Vedic Scriptures. Thank You So Much For This Article.Suggestion: Research On Purans And Upanishads.

  26. Thomas Paul says:

    I pray to the lord every day please come and save the humans from the barbarians. How long we have to suffer; every where we look we see only wickedness;
    greed,power struggle;killings and so on. I firmly believe
    that you will re incarnate one day.

  27. Robert Barrett says:

    I wonder if Antarctica, a very special interest of Hitler, has anything to do with Shambala? Some pretty strange happenings occurred. Operation high jump
    I believe

  28. gopal swaroop says:

    It is not clear that all the books which we are reading in present scenario is totaly correct. we were slave for many long time. The author and publishers were influence with Britishers and Muslims. muslim Sufi tantra had spoiled all hindu mathology. They had convert all hindu mathology and religion as they wish. Iletrate indians has adpted all theses things. Due to this there are many confusion in hindu religion and mathology.

  29. Kamlesh Tiwana says:

    As per mythology the Satyug is bound to come, look at the ruined behavior, harmed humanity spoiled nature all bad is happening but still surviving because this Kalyug continue to realize the importance of satyug So Kalki will bring this to earth.

  30. Padmini says:

    Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu who is Krishna Himself has appeared 500 years ago in West Bengal in a place called Navadwip, Mayapur. All the scriptures from Upanishads, Puranas, including the Vishnu Sahasranamam have predicted this avatar who will appear in a covered form as His own devotee.

    There are historical records of how He went all over India and spread the Nama Sankirtan of the Hare Krishna Maha Mantra which will usher in a golden age for the next 10,000 years where there will be all the symptoms of Sathya yuga.

    After this 10,000 years, society will degenerate once again and will have to wait till the end of Kali yuga (which lasts for 432, 000 years of which only 5,000 years have passed), Kalki Bhagavan will appear in Sambhala and usher in the Sathya Yuga.

    All this is predicted in our shastras.

    So the good news is right now a golden age is already unfolding where more and more people all over the world are taking to the chanting of Hare Krishna Maha mantra and are discovering their spiritual identities and feeling great peace and happiness because of their connection with the Supreme Lord simply by chanting His holy name.
    Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
    Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare are

    Tha Kali Santarana Upanishad states that this 16 syllable mantra can destry all the ill effects of Kali Yuga. If you go through the entire shastras of Vedas and Upanishdas, you will not find a better remedy than this!

  31. Anne Severyns says:

    I agree on what Rati says:
    April 1, 2017 at 6:37 am
    Why this sudden interest in what Hitler thought & did or wanted to do? And if you want to look at it through Sanatani eyes, please don’t refer to an article written by a Westerner … Everything gets mixed up – Hindusim, Buddhism, Western search, Hitler …

  34. Avadhesh says:

    Interesting and informative write-up which highlighted the little known details of Kalki.
    However, please note that Nazi swastika is not same as Indian, Hindu swastika. Theirs faces counter-clockwise, while ours goes clockwise.
