Shangri La is one of the worlds that are participating in The Game. It is based on Tibetan lore, Buddhism, and East Asian Mythologies and is named after the fabled valley where time flows slowly.
The exiled soul of Shangri La is Asura.
According to Macan, Shangri La is a distorted world where time flows slower, with its skies reach beneath the land and the sun never sets, and where the golden city of Hiranyapura resides. The land of Shangri La believes in cutting away one's attachment and desire in order to achieve enlightenment, and those who cannot give up said feeling will be banished to the realm of strife and forever trapped in the cycle of death and rebirth.
