Western Shamballa

The Heart of the Inner Retreat

On New Year’s Eve 1976 Gautama Buddha prophesied the future transfer of the forcefield of his retreat to America. He said that America “is indeed the place where all shall return to the cause and core of the Dharma ([i.e.,] the Teaching) and the Sangha. For here we will transfer Shamballa, here we will transfer that City of Light one day. But for now, it will be the implementation of a secondary forcefield, the Omega aspect of Shamballa, as the Alpha aspect remains positioned where it is.”

In 1981 Gautama established his Western Shamballa over “the Heart” of what his devotees call the “Inner Retreat.” On April 18, he said:

From Shamballa I arc a light. I would establish the ground of the Ancient of Days.... In this hour I contemplate—note it well—the arcing of the flame of Shamballa to the Inner Retreat as the Western abode of the Buddhas and the bodhisattvas and the bodhisattvas-to-be who are the devotees of the Mother light.

So, the “yang” presence of Gautama Buddha remains at that point of Shamballa in the East in the etheric octave over the Gobi Desert, and his “yin” presence is in the West in the etheric octave over the Gallatin Range in the Northern Rockies focused at the Heart of the Inner Retreat. This property, known as the Royal Teton Ranch, a cathedral of nature bordering on Yellowstone Park, is the physical coordinate of the Western etheric retreat of the Lord of the World. Here we contemplate the mysteries of the Inner Buddha and the Inner Christ and lend our threefold flames to anchor in the Western Hemisphere the forcefield of Shamballa.

Gautama Buddha speaks of this retreat:

I AM in the Holy Temple of Shamballa, the Shamballa of the West, whose etheric retreat has also been established from everlasting. In relationship to the Retreat of the Divine Mother that is vast over the territory now called the Royal Teton Ranch, my own holy temple in the etheric octave over the Heart is, as it were, the antechamber, the secret chamber of the heart where the soul does journey, here to enter to be God-taught.

Thus, beloved, the celebration in the Heart of the Inner Retreat each summer is the celebration of the eightfold chakra and the Eightfold Path. It is the entering in to the holy temple of the Great White Brotherhood whose path through our Mystery School under Lord Maitreya does bring the individual to the consecration of his life, his tabernacle, as the holy temple of being.[1]
