the myth of shambhala
The kingdom of SHAMBHALA or 'pure land' is thought to be both a literal and mythological place, possibly in the mountains of Nepal. Some modern-day Tibetans believe that SHAMBHALA is a state of being that one can achieve, with deep meditation, on their path to enlightenment.
Shambhala opens with crisp, fresh citron and mountain air. Then forest notes of pine and spruce merge with tea bud and neroli. Finally, the base of soft moss, rich oud, and incense provides a dry down that lasts for hours. Like the hike, it is a surprising, restorative journey that ends in a transportive, peaceful calm.
Prayer bells are replaced with the silence of the forest.
Pine and cypress are redolent in the air. The climb begins.
The sacred snow lotus shows itself, shy among the rock.
Breaths of smoke and incense are on the air.
A temple appears. A silent monk in an umber robe.
The traveler is greeted. Tea. A smile.
The silence remains, as sacred as the trees and clouds.
A space of eternal worship, in the stillness of thought.
A lush yet airy fragrance that is a seeker's journey to the mystic mountains of Nepal
Majestic forest trees of pine and spruce, soft green mosses and the sacred herbs of Nepalese incense
Made without phtalates, parabens or dyes.
