Kailash - Mansarovar

माऊंट कैलास मानसरोवर यात्रा 13 जुलै 2019 ते 21 जुलै 2019


Mount Kailash

Mansarovar Lake

 Mount  Kailash alias 'Jewels of snow' as Tibetan call the most sacred mountain in Asia. The abode of Lord Shiva venerated by Buddhist, Hinduism Jains and the Bon, Tibet's indigenous religion. For thousands of years the Kailash area, from where the Ganges, the Sutlaj, the Indus and the Brahamaputra originates, which drain the vast Tibetan plateau. Hindus, declare it be a Shiva's throne. Shiva, one of the three primary gods in Hinduism, sits in eternal paradise, the long strands of his melted hair falling and flowing all about him. The holy Ganges River is said to emanate from one of these strands. Buddhist cosmography identifies Kailash with the mighty Mount  Sumeru, the central peak of the world. Jains identify the Kailash area with the place of their first saint's spiritual liberation. As a Bon centre, Mount  Kailash is the soul of universe and assures perpetuity and protection for all the Tibetan people.

Situated between Mount  Kailash and Mount  Gurla Mandata is sacred lake Manasoravor. This another important pilgrimage sites to Tibetans are knows as Mapham Tso (Lake), "the unconquerable lake". As per Hindu mythology it was formed in the mind of Brahma. It was created to show the omnipotence of Brahma's mind, 'MANAS'. Holy Lake Manasarovar, the mother principle, represents Buddhist transcendent consciousness.

Devotees and high lamas chanting and praying ceaselessly as most make the arduous circumambulating of the Mount  Kailash and Lake Manasoravor (clockwise by Hindus and Buddhist and anti-clockwise by Bon religion), is believed to released from the sins of 100 births. Even the beast that bears the name of Manasarovar shall go to the paradise of Brahma. This is a journey of lifetime - a pilgrimage for us all.
