Praise to Holy Kailash
As it is described in great Hindu epic Ramayana "There
is no mountain like Himalayas, for on it are Kailash and
Mansarovar. As the due is dried up by the morning sun, so
are the sins of mankind by the sight of Himachal."
Mt. kailash (22,000ft) stands as only virtue for an absolution
of living creature.
Mt. Kailash is revered in the Sanskrit literature as the
abode of Lord Shiva the destroyer and transformer of the
Hindu Triad, and his divine consort Parvati. Mt. Kailash
as it's manifestation of Mt. Meru has an important role
in great churning of "Thesis Sea". (Mahasagar
Manthan) This extraordinary mountain is regarded as the
'heart of the universe' by Hindus, Buddhists, the Jains
and the Bons. In the same periphery of this sacred mountain,
twin lakes of Mansarovar and Rakshas Taal are situated which
are supposedly a place for heavenly ablution as on it still
people can observe god and goddess taking an ablution.
16 Days Kailash Mansarovar yatra (Tour)
A great mass of black rock soaring to over 22,000 feet,
Mt. Kailash has the unique distinction of being the world's
most venerated holy place at the same time that it is
the least visited. The supremely sacred site of four religions
and billions of people, Kailash is seen by no more than
a few thousand pilgrims each year. This curious fact is
explained by the mountain's remote location in far western
Tibet. No planes, trains or buses journey anywhere near
the region and even with rugged over-land vehicles the
journey still requires weeks of difficult, often dangerous
travel. The weather, always cold, can be unexpectedly
treacherous and pilgrims must carry all the supplies they
will need for the entire journey.
The different practices based on the three Vedas, Samkhya,
Yoga, Pashupata-mata, Vaishhnava-mata etc. are but different
paths (to reach to the Greatest Truth) and people on account
of their different aptitude choose from them whatever
they think best and deserved to be accepted. But as the
sea is the final resting place for all types of streams,
You (Holy Kailash) are the only reaching place for all
people whichever path, straight or zigzag, they may accept.
