The Shambhala Archives has created this site not only to share some of the many photographs in our collections but to also invite you the viewer to participate. We are in the process of digitizing many of the photographs in our archives and accessioning them in a database to be able to locate the originals when we need to. Your comments and stories about individual photographs are most welcome! Your contributions can be added in either the comment section below each image or contacting us directly by e-mail. Comments posted here can be viewed by anyone visiting this site. If you prefer not to share here simply click on "Contact us". We have also added a small collection of Chogyam Trungpa's own photographs for you to enjoy.

The Shambhala Archives is a repository of film, audio and video recordings, photographs, negatives, transparencies, manuscripts, transcripts, books, and artwork by Venerable Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche or relating to him. The Shambhala Archives also holds teachings by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and other prominent teachers. The Archives is also responsible for the care, preservation and conservation of the personal belongings of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche including sacred and everyday objects, robes, and clothing.
The work of the Shambhala Archives is ongoing as we continue to migrate audio and video to new media so that the teachings can continue to be heard and seen. Our work in the Labrang, the division that cares for Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche's belongings continues not only in the preservation of each object or piece of clothing, but involves recording pertinent information through research and database cataloguing.
Presently the Shambhala Archives is one of one of the largest audio-visual collections of Tibetan Buddhist teachers in the West. We invite you explore this site to learn more about what we have, what we have been doing, and what we still need to do.
