For centuries the people of Tibet and Mongolia have believed in the existence of Shambhala, a mythical kingdom hidden in the remote mountains of Central Asia. There, it is said, a line of enlightened kings is guarding the highest wisdom for a time when all spiritual values in the world outside will be lost in war and destruction. At that time, according to the legend, a great king will emerge from this sanctuary to defeat the forces of evil and establish a golden age. Drawing on Tibetan and Sanskrit texts, interviews with lamas in Nepal and India, and his own experiences in the Himalayas, Edwin Bernbaum gives a detailed account of this intriguing legend, examining its basis in the history and religion of the region, as well as exploring its symbolic meaning.
Edwin Bernbaum, Ph.D., is a lecturer, author, mountaineer, and scholar of comparative religion and mythology. He is the author of the award-winning book Sacred Mountains of the World. He holds a doctorate in Asian Studies from the University of California at Berkeley, where he is a research associate, and is director of the Sacred Mountains Program at the Mountain Institute, a nonprofit organization working in the Himalayas, the Andes, and the United States to preserve mountain environments and strengthen mountain cultures.
