The Gates of Shambhala
Shambhala is like a large and colorful tent with many activities taking place under its broad roof. We refer to the doors to this tent as the gates of Shambhala: Vajradhatu, Shambhala Training, and Nalanda.
Vajradhatu offers a comprehensive path of Buddhist meditation and study through a network of local centers known as Dharmadhatus. The 2,500-year-old Buddhist tradition provides a well-defined, graduated method of developing skillful action and wisdom through meditation practice.
Shambhala Training is a secular path of spiritual training. The Shambhala Training path is one of fearless and gentle action in the world; it is open to people who follow any spiritual tradition or who have chosen no particular spiritual tradition.
Nalanda brings a contemplative perspective to the arts, health, education, and business. It includes such traditional disciplines as poetics, visual art, kyudo (archery), ikebana (flower arranging), and tea ceremony.
To find out about any of these activities, contact Shambhala International or the Shambhala Center in your area. You are also invited to visit one of Shambhala's rural contemplative centers, which offer opportunities for extended practice and study.
