Within the vast teachings of the Buddhist tradition, Shambhala holds a distinctive place. That is to say, the Shambhala teachings flow from the original transmission of the Kalachakra (Wheel of Time) tantra.  The Kalachakra tantra is said to have been transmitted by the Buddha to the first sovereign of Shambhala, King Dawa Sangpo.

Within this same stream of transmission on enlightened society, Shambhala uniquely holds the terma (mind treasures) of its founder, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. These sacred texts are studied by practitioners undertaking the most advanced practices in the Shambhala mandala.
