The Shambhala Archives is a repository of recordings and holdings from Venerable Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche—the current lineage holder of the Shambhala Tradition, and other Buddhists teachers.
The collection includes film, audio and video recordings, photographs, negatives, transparencies, manuscripts, transcripts, books, and artwork. It is one of the largest audio-visual collections of Tibetan Buddhist teachers in the West.

The holdings of the Shambhala Archives include a large selection of video, photographic, and audio materials, as well as documents, books, manuscripts, calligraphies, and other physical objects. These include the teachings of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, and many other Buddhist teachers. They also include some oral histories from many buddhist traditions.
