Land and Location

Land and Location

 The Land Drala Factor in Shambhala Environments

Shambhala Centers located in areas where land dralas are rich and plentiful can enrich the space, support practice, attract blessings, and induce harmony in the community. This is a brief set of guidelines for identifying drala-rich environments:

Identifying the Drala Basin

The Shambhala Center should be located within the Drala Basin. A Drala Basin is an area where the blessings of the land dralas can be collected. They are characterized by:

  1. Protection – the land is a shallow hollow or wide valley surrounded by lower rolling hills. There should be adequate foliage and vegetation such as trees or low buildings.
  2. Collection – Drala will only be accumulated in regions with a good container. In front of the site should be an open space in the form of a park, or even a parking lot. Fast roads, railway tracks, fast rivers running adjacent to the site cannot attract land dralas to stay.
  3. Continuous enrichment – the site should be “fed” by pathways that carry drala energy into the collection area. Pathways are identified by roads, rivers, ridges that converge centrifugally into the area but not directed at the site.
  4. Safety from Attacks – the site should not be squeezed by roads, railways, rivers, cliffs, and other buildings. There should not be sharp objects pointing at the site or major electrical installations and transformers nearby. Roads should not run straight toward the site.

The Lungta Factor in Shambhala Environments

Shambhala Centers located in neighborhoods with high lungta will attract new members, retain existing membership, and uplift the practice environment.

Identifying the Lungta of the Neighborhood:

1. The following features enhance and uplift the lungta of the neighborhood and are desirable to have in proximity to the Shambhala Center.

  • Health-oriented businesses including holistic health services, health food stores
  • Bookstores and learning centers
  • Community-conscious cafes, restaurants

Most importantly, the neighborhood should feel safe, and the sidewalks should be clean.

2. The following features drag down lungta and are undesirable to have in proximity to the Shambhala Center.

  • Butcher shops, smoke shops, pawn shops, liquor stores, red light district
  • Large hospitals
  • Cemeteries
  • Buildings in the neighborhood with bars over windows
  • Most importantly, the neighborhood does not feel safe, and the sidewalks are littered.

3. The following features are neutral.

  • Office buildings
  • Professional buildings

The neighborhood feels safe but there are no enriching features such as parks, pedestrian friendly sidewalks.
