On the Road to Shambala

Wash away my troubles, wash away my pain
With the rain in Shambala

Wash away my sorrow, wash away my shame 
With the rain in Shambala

Everyone is helpful, everyone is kind,
Out on the road to Shambala

Everyone is lucky, everyone is so kind,
On the road to Shambala

I can tell my sister by the flowers in her eyes,
On the road to Shambala

I can tell my brother by the flowers in his eyes,
On the road to Shambala

Ah, ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
On the road to Shambala

How does your light shine, in the halls of Shambala?
Please tell me, how does your light shine in the halls of Shambala?

That was Three Dog Night's 1973 hit version of "On the Road to Shambhala" if you were wondering. Yes, Bibi is certainly a member of the MTV generation as she even puts posts to music. If you ever wondered what Shambhala is- it's a mythical Buddhist kingdom surrounded by snow capped mountains where the final incarnation of Vishnu will occur. Indeed, it was the inspiration for the Shangri-La of James Hilton's Lost Horizon. This legendary kingdom may or may not be extra-dimensional or on the etheric plane. Anywho, we're off on a family vacation for about a month during which I shall not be posting due to lack of internet service. We might end up in Shambala, who knows? Until then,

Gonna keep on tryin'
Till I reach my highest ground!

No one's gonna bring me down, Oh no......
