kailash yatra

Mount Kailash is in western Tibet is a mountain commonly sacred to Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and Bonpos, those adherents of ancient animistic beliefs. In Sanskrit, it is called "Mt. Meru or Sumeru", In Hindi,"Kailash or Crystal Shinning". To Tibetans it is Kang Rimpoche or the "Precious Jewel of Snow". It rises from the shores of the sacred Mansarovar Lake (4600 m) soaring to 6723m.

There is more than enough reasons to call Mt. Kailash the holiest of all the holy peaks. Not only it is believed to be the abode of Hindu God Shiva, but also it is the Center of Spiritual Cosmos. To the Jains the Mt. Kailash is the site where their first prophet achieved enlightenment. An ancient religion Bon has a legend that its founder Shanrap was descent from heaven to the top of Mt. Kailash. For Buddhist it is the Precious Jewel Peak where pilgrims take the journey to attain enlightenment. Substantial historical significances, legends and myths are connected to this most sacred and sublime destination in Asia. Over the centuries pilgrims have constantly been braving their way to Mt. Kailash in order to attain spiritual enlightenment despite the harsh weather and frequent bandits attack in the gone days. The journey/yatra itself burns out the sins collected in one's lifetime.

Manasarovar Lake is a freshwater lake in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China 940 kilometres from Lhasa (Tibet). To the west of Lake Manasarovar is Lake Rakshastal, toward the north is Mount Kailash. You won't be surprised to find yourself renewed person after your lifetime journey. A drop of water from beautiful and serene Lake Manasarovar, which lies 30 km further from Mt. Kailash. According to the Hindu religion, the lake was first created in the mind of the Lord Brahma after which it manifested on Earth. Hence, in Sanskrit it is called "Manas sarovara", which is a combination of the words manas (mind) and sarovara (lake). As per Hindu theology, Lake Manasa Sarovar is a personification of purity, and one who drinks water from the lake will go to the Abode of Lord Shiva after death. He is believed to be cleansed of all his sins committed over even a hundred lifetimes.

Like Mount Kailash, Lake Manasa Sarovar is a place of pilgrimage, attracting religious people from India, Nepal, Tibet and the neighboring countries. Pilgrims come to take ceremonial baths in the cleansing waters of the lake. Lake Manasarovar is relatively round in shape with the circumference of 88 kilometres and its surface area is 320 square kilometres (120 sq mi). It is connected to nearby Lake Rakshastal by the natural Ganga Chhu channel. Manasarovar is near the source of the Sutlej River which is the easternmost large tributary of the Indus. Nearby are the sources of the Brahmaputra River, the Indus River, and the Karnali River (Ghaghara), an important tributary of the Ganges River. The lake has a few monasteries on its shores, the most notable of which is the ancient Chiu Gompa Monastery built on a steep hill, looking as if it has been carved right out of the rock.

The entire area echoes with spiritual vibrations. Even the agnostics shall discover new Balance amidst that fathomless serenity. One has to experience it. It is widely believed that those who are ordained only could be there.
