The Fascinating Truth behind the Myth of Shangri-La
Shambhala: The Fascinating Truth behind the Myth of Shangi-La by Victoria LePage

For thousands of years, stories have been told about an inaccessible garden paradise hidden among the icy peaks and secluded valleys of the Himalayas. Called by some Shangri-la, this mythical kingdom, where the pure at heart live forever among jewel lakes, wish-fulfilling trees, and speaking stones, has fired the imagination of both actual explorers and mystical travellers to the inner realms.

In this fascinating look behind the myth, Victoria LePage traces the links between this legendary Utopia and the mythologies of the world. Shambhala, Le Page argues persuasively, is "real" and may be becoming more so as human beings as a species learn increasingly to perceive dimensions of reality that have been concealed for millennia.

Victoria LePage began her lifelong interest in Shambhala almost fifty years ago, when she was in her early twenties. Her research led her to studies of both the Hindu-Buddhist and Sufi traditions and to long visits to Central Java, where the Shambhala tradition is strong. Her articles on the struggles of Indonesia have been published in leading Australian newspapers. She lives in New South Wales Australia.
