Arya Sangha & Shambhala

Postby Nicholas Weeks » Thu Apr 21, 2011 12:05 am

Most of the Eight Great Bodhisattvas are well-known, Manjushri, Avalokiteshvara, Kshitigarbha, Vajrapani et al. But did you know that the first 3 or 4 Kings of Shambhala have the same names as those of these members of the Arya Sangha?

Anyone have knowledge of this curious fact, from the Kalachakra tradition or any where else?
Every time you recite Amita Buddha’s name, a ray of light shines through empty space. If you recite very sincerely, then this light fills up the universe, so that the energy of all worlds will be auspicious and harmonious.
