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.

The Country of Shambhala is an ideal Buddhist kingdom described in the <i>Kalacatantra</i>. The 25<sup>th</sup> generation Raudracakrin king of this country is said to win the final war with Islam, and revive Buddhism. When the <i>Kalacakratantra</i> was introduced to Tibet after the 11th century, it was widely accepted by Tibetan Buddhists. 'Jam-dbyangs-bzhad-pa (1648-1722) and Sumpa-mkhan-po (1704-1788), who were great scholars of the dGe lugs sect in the 18th century, wrote Chronological Tables of Tibetan Buddhism. The enthronement of the king of Shambhala is stated in both chronological tables, and the revival of Buddhism by the Raudracakrin king is predicted. This paper provides a general description of the Country of Shambhala from the <i>Dang po'i rgyas dpal dus kyi 'khor lo'i lo rgyus dang ming gi rnam grangs</i> of Klong-rdol-bla-ma (1719-1805), who was a great scholar of the dGe lugs sect.
