The Chronological Table of Tibetan Buddhist history of 'Jam-dbyangs-bzhad-pa precedes the famous chronological table of Sum-pa-mkhan-po. A feature of both chronological tables is that they were written in acceptance of the legend of the country of Shambhala, as taught in the <i>Kalacakratantra</i>. Namely, they record that the 25th generation Raudracakrin king of the ideal Buddhism kingdom Shambhala will win the final war with Islam, reviving Buddhism. Sum-pa-mkhan-po projects the date of this event to be A. D. 2376.
