This inspirational little book will help you comprehend the greatest ancient truths of the East through twelve short and profound parables containing the universal Laws of Existence. These truths will be revealed to you through the juxtaposition of opposites: spirit and body, reality and illusion, good and evil, freedom and slavery, life and death, and so on. In this way, the spiritual lessons of this wonderful book will enable you to make the right decisions in your daily life and to respond with wisdom to the events happening around you.
These parables were left as a heritage to humanity by the Mahatmas, the Great Souls of the East, and written down by Zinovia Dushkova, Ph.D., an award-winning author and researcher of ancient mysteries. During her trips across Tibet, India, Nepal, and Mongolia, she has stayed at numerous monasteries — those open to the public as well as those hidden within high mountains and caves. She has been honored to communicate with representatives of different religions, elderly monks and hermits who have generously shared their secret knowledge with her. In 2004, one Himalayan Master of Wisdom narrated legends and tales originating from the mysterious kingdom of Shambhala. This experience inspired the author to write down the stories in this book of parables under the canopy of the gigantic deodar cedars on the summit of the Himalayas.
Parables from Shambhala will be your loyal companion during your journey of self-improvement and spiritual growth, revealing its symbolism and depth as your consciousness expands.
"I wasn't sure if I'd like it at first, but it ended up being a really fascinating read for me. The parables gave me a lot to think about."
