THE BUILDING OF SHAMBALLA

THE BUILDING OF SHAMBALLA

Within the Gobi Sea there was an island with lush

green foliage, upon which it was decided to build
Shamballa. This island was later called "White Is-land."

Drawn together by the bonds of
common interest in
one cause, the next task of the 30 volunteers was
to
find the material of which Shamballa was to be
built, and by the labor of
their own hands, design
and build from marble and stone the vision which

they held within their minds. Conditions were
similar to those
encountered today. There was no
special assistance given these individuals.
There
was a veil, and there was no coming and going of
visible angelic
beings.

'~From all over the world they carried by the
sweat of the
brow and not in mystic chariot, all
the tre-mendous pieces of marble and the
various
other heavy stones that formed the mighty
edifices. They used
the most beautiful materials
the Earth could offer. Some among them, who
were
powerful in the use of magnetization, helped them
in the erecting
of some of these stones, weighing
tons."..............




Continuing the account of the Masters, in the
building of
Shamballa, the first task of the
priests was to build a beautiful bridge
connecting
the main-land with the island. It was carved of
the finest
marble, engrained with pure gold, and
contained ex-quisite figures of
Cherubim. Adjacent
to the bridge on White Island was a tree-lined
avenue
which led to the main temple, meant to be
Sanat Kumara`s resi-dence. The
main temple was
built upon the highest point of the city. There
were
marble steps leading to it, broken by grassy
terraces placed at intervals of
about 12 steps.
These terraces were adorned with gaily colored
flowers and
rainbow-hued fountains. The great door
of the temple was of tremendous
height. Its golden
filigree work reflected the sun like a gigantic

mirror. The main temple itself, as well as the
remainder of the city,
was built using white
marble, hence the names "White Island" and "City

of White."



The temple
for Sanat Kumara looked similar
to the Taj Mahal
of modern times. It was of Cyclopean architecture.

White minarets of the City pointed heavenward, and
its golden-domed
temples gave the impression of a
gigantic fire-lotus suspended in the
atmosphere.
Lovely fountains adorned the front of the
building.


Shamballa was not built all at once. Construction
was frequently
interrupted by destructive hordes,
who came down from the hills, killed the
builders,
and destroyed their work. As soon as their
physical bodies
were disconnected from their
etheric bodies (souls), they applied again to
be
quickly provided with opportunity for a new
embodiment. This request
was always granted.
Undauntedly, for 900 years, the builders of

Shamballa continued their service of love, brushed
away the rubble, and
started anew, sometimes even
having to rebuild the very foundation of the

temples.
