The Shambhala Lineage Thangka was presented to the worldwide community on Shambhala Day 2016. The Sakyong encourages all Shambhala vajrayana students to see and practice with this extraordinary manifestation of sacred artistry.

The Shambhala Lineage Thangka holds the blessings and aspirations of the Sakyong lineage, and thus the blessings of profound wisdom, the Rigdens, and all deities and dralas of Shambhala. With the Sakyong lineage comes the lineages of Gesar, of India and Tibet’s mahamudra and Dzokchen teachings, and the ancestral sovereigns. The Shambhala Lineage Thangka depicts over ninety deities, including all the Rigden kings and queens of Shambhala.

Mr. Noedup Rongae, Artist of the Kalapa Court

He is a treasure to both Shambhala and the Himalayan Buddhist world, painted the thangka over the course of nearly twelve years. Noedup’s artwork can be found in monasteries in Asia and throughout the West.



A print of the thangka is available for those who have received the Primordial Rigden Ngondro. It can be purchased at Samadhi Cushions or Kalapa Media. .
