This is a pretty good account of the country of Tazig ( rtag gzigs ) and its ancient region of Olmo Lunging ( ol mo lung ring ), the founder of Yungdung Bon, Tonpa Shenrab ( ston pa gshen rab ) The landscape of the nine swastika pyramid of Mt Yungdrung Gutseg ( gyung drung dgu brtsegs ) its four rivers, not sure if it mentions the "arrow way" into Olmo Lungring, but the ancient kingdom of zhang zhung and shambhala most certainly are.

All credit to vajranatha ( John Reynolds ) for the article.

"Olmo Lung-ring or Shambhala, this imperishable sacred land, which is the spiritual center of the world, existed on earth from the very beginning of the human race. It was the place where the celestial gods of the Clear Light ('od gsal lha) descended from heaven to earth in order to take up incarnation as human beings and ensoul the physical bodies which had been prepared for diem. Since that time of the beginning, Olmo Lung-ring has been the sanctuary of wisdom and the receptacle of the highest mystical teachings being brought down from above. All of the inhabitants of that land have entered upon the path to enlightenment, and for this reason it is said to be the land of the Vidyadharas beyond the Himalayas, spoken of in the Puranas and other
ancient books of India. This mysterious land at the center has been known by various different names in different ancient traditions throughout the world".

BOOK: Somewhere, beyond Tibet, lies a paradise of universal wisdom and ineffable peace known as Shambhala. Called by some Shangri-la, this mythical kingdom of jewel lakes, wish-fulfilling trees, and speaking stones has fired the imagination of both actual explorers and travelers to the inner realms. This fascinating look behind the myth shows Shambhala to be a "real" place, always accessible to the pure of heart.

ISBN 083560750X, 9780835607506 book by Victoria LePage, with history and precious old illustrations.
