Shambhala Praise

We are delighted to make available in translation one of the most famous and recited prayers of the Jonang tradition, The Great Praise of Shambhala by Dolpopa Sherab Gyaltsen.

An excerpt from this praise reads,

Upon its beautiful, round,
and lofty peak, the sublime sage’s
residence known as Śambhala
contains more than ten million towns,
the chief of which is glorious Kalāpa,
with a vast breadth of twelve leagues,
decorated with gold and various
precious substances, and possessing
the joy and happiness of the Dharma
of the sublime vehicle.
