Full moon night in Mansarovar Lake on 09 July 2017 (Guru Purnima)

Every living creature has unique way of showing their devotion and respect to their god. Human beings, being the most knowledgeable creature have a very distinct way of worshiping gods. Mount Kailash situated at China’s autonomous region of Tibet is considered as the holiest mountain of world by the follower of four different religions, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Bonpo (Tibetan indigenous religion).

Hindus believe Mount Kailash as an exclusive abode of Lord Shiva and his wife Parvbati. Jain calls this Mountain as Meru Parvat or Sumeru- a place for attaining Salvation. Buddhist believes it as the dwelling of Lord Buddha and Bon religious people worship Mount Kailash as the savior of entire Tibetan people. Even a single glance at this Black Mountain is taken as the symbol of good luck. It is believed that the founder of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Tibetan and Bonpo religion have resided and meditated here once.

Circumambulating the 53 km periphery of Kailash Parvat, situated at an elevation of 6714 meters is taken as a way of escaping from the vices of life. This arduous foot walk begins from ‘Yamadwar’ (Gate of heaven). Those who could not circuit the whole Parvat even return back rotating the Yamadwar. Tibet has become the world’s best pilgrimage destination as it is home to the sacred Mount Kailash and Mansarovar Lake. It is a dream of every pilgrim to venture this holy spot to rinse off their all sins which they have committed knowingly or unknowingly in their life obtaining Mokshya: Salvation. Hence every year thousands of pilgrims carve their journey to Tibet via Nepal.

Manasarovar Lake; Near Mount Kailash you can see a gigantic Lake called Mansarovar (4580m). As derived from Sanskrit language, ‘Manas’ meaning Mind and ‘Sarovar’ meaning Lake, it is mother of four prominent rivers in Asia namely, The Brahmaputra, The Ganges, The Sutlej and The Indus. According to Hindu mythology, this lake was formed in the mind of god of creator, Brahma and even a beast that bears the name of Mansarovar shall go to the paradise of Brahma. It has age long spiritual and religious significance to Buddhist as well. Buddhist believes that lord Buddha meditated near this lake and obtains knowledge about the reality of life. As per the Holy Scriptures, even a single dip into this lake can free you from the chain of the mortal life securing your place in heaven after death. It is an ultimate way of purifying your body and soul. Its water is considered as the purest one and drinking it makes you lifelong immune.
