The snow-capped rocky peak-Kailash Parbat (mountain), 6714meters is also believed to be a place where founders of Tibetan Buddhism, Jainism and Bonpo religions once meditated and resided. As Hindus and Buddhists all over the world also worship this peak as the exact "Center of the Universe" Jains believes that their first Saint obtains Liberation: “Freedom” meditating at Kailash Parvat.
Mostly Hindu people believe Mount Kailash to be the abode of supreme Hindu God, Lord Shiva and his wife Parvati. For a Hindu, to make the arduous pilgrimage to Kailash and have the divine view (Darshan) of Shiva’s abode is to attain release from the clutches of ignorance & delusion of life. Thousands of Hindu religious people come to visit the sacred mount Kailash and Mansarovar Lake, situated in the Southern part of China’s Autonomous Region of Tibet, every year from around the globe and neighboring country India via Nepal.
Tibet, a sacred home to Mount Kailash and Mansarovar Lake, is a famous pilgrimage destination for the devotees of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Bon religions and an epitome of beauty and awe to the rest of the world. For Buddhist to make the challenging pilgrimage is to feel the peace of the surrounding which they believe the meditating spot of Lord Buddha.
Mansarovar Lake is just beside the sacred Mount Kailash. The word “Manas” means mind or consciousness and “Sarovar” means Lake. Hence this lake is defined as the Lake of consciousness. As Kailash Parvat it also has held deep spiritual influence and wide religious belief among Hindus and Buddhist. Hindu worships it as the bathing lake of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. Making round of the Lake and taking a dip in it is believed to be Purge one’s soul from sins and the body from sickness. Still there are others, who believe one can not only clean his soul but also secure his place in heaven after the end of mortal life. The beautiful birds and ducks roaming at this Lake multiply the beauty of this gigantic Lake. One more religious doctrine opines that taking a dip in it helps one attain “Mokshya”: free from the cycle of birth and re-birth in the worldly life. This Lake is so mighty that it takes three full days to just go round its peripheries even for the locals. Other adventure lovers or new pilgrims may take 5-7 days for same rotation. One dip into the cold water of this holy Lake is believed to free the soul of all its sins, thus carving a straight path to heaven after death. Ancient Hindu scriptures indicate this Lake as a must visit place for someone who wants to attain “Salvation” - the highest level of achievement in Hindu religion. The cascading waves of the Lake with pleasant chirping of the birds around provide the eternal pleasure for the visitors. It looks very charming.
