What exactly is 'Shambhalla'? I wik-ied it but still did not really understand what it means.

I know it is of Tibetan/Buddhist origin.

OMW

No one really knows where Shambhala is, no one really knows if Shambhala exists. Since no one has been to Shambhala...one can only theorize about Shambhala..

I liked this one site....

Shambhala is a secular version of Tibetan Buddhism. It reminds me of Tantra more than anything.

"It is the Shambhala view that every human being has a fundamental nature of goodness, warmth and intelligence. This nature can be cultivated through meditation, following ancient principles, and it can be further developed in daily life, so that it radiates out to family, friends, community and society.

In the course of our lives, this goodness, warmth and intelligence can easily become covered over by doubt, fear and egotism. We tend to fall into a kind of sleep or stupor, believing in the conditioning we have as the ultimate truth, and coming under the sway of fear. The journey of becoming fully human means seeing through fear and egotism, and waking up to our natural intelligence. It takes kindness—to ourselves and others—and courage, to wake up in this world."
