The tradition of Shambhala is like the rising of the sun. When the sun rises, everybody is able to see it. The fundamental or ultimate sun lies in the hearts of all people. Therefore, everyone possesses fundamental well-being, brilliance, and purity, Whoever a person is, he or she is capable of crying and also capable of laughing. That is the indication that everyone has the Great Eastern Sun within them.
