Abstract

The Country of Shambhala is an ideal Buddhist kingdom described in the <i>Kalacatantra</i>. The 25<sup>th</sup> generation Raudracakrin king of this country is said to win the final war with Islam, and revive Buddhism. When the <i>Kalacakratantra</i> was introduced to Tibet after the 11th century, it was widely accepted by Tibetan Buddhists. 'Jam-dbyangs-bzhad-pa (1648-1722) and Sumpa-mkhan-po (1704-1788), who were great scholars of the dGe lugs sect in the 18th century, wrote Chronological Tables of Tibetan Buddhism. The enthronement of the king of Shambhala is stated in both chronological tables, and the revival of Buddhism by the Raudracakrin king is predicted. This paper provides a general description of the Country of Shambhala from the <i>Dang po'i rgyas dpal dus kyi 'khor lo'i lo rgyus dang ming gi rnam grangs</i> of Klong-rdol-bla-ma (1719-1805), who was a great scholar of the dGe lugs sect.
