King Dawa Sangpo

King Dawa Sangpo, the first sovereign of the Kingdom of Shambhala, received the sacred teachings on enlightened society from the Buddha. “The history and legend of Shambhala is based upon a great community that was able to reach a higher level of consciousness. This community could occur because its members participated fully in creating a culture of kindness, generosity and courage,” wrote The Sakyong, Jamgön Mipham Rinpoche, in his Letter of the Morning Sun.
