Religious Significance of Mt. Kailash 


In Asia, Mt. Kailash is one of the sacred lands for offering prayers. One can access the mountainous terrains of Mt. Kailash only through treacherous hikes. Its unique shape shows its majestic qualities with sides pointing towards main cardinal directions. In Hindu and Buddhist cosmology, Mt. Kailash is the worldly manifestation of Mt. Sumeru. It is the central axis of the universe. The top of Mt. Kailash is believed to the central point of fixation for cosmos rotation. In Hindu pantheon, Lord Shiva stays there with his consort Parvati and divine vehicle nandi. In Buddhism, Demchong, the tantric god is worshiped in the holy lands of Mt. Kailash. According to Bon mythology, Shenrab, profound founder of the Bon religion came to Mt. Kailash directly from heaven. The followers of Bon also believe Mt. Kailash is a swastika-shaped nine storied mountains which is a complete site of spiritual power. It is the source of four main life-giving rivers like Karnali, Sutlej, Brahmaputra, and Indus. As per the course of the river, the world is divided into four regions.

Like religious figurines like Shiva, Rishabhadev, Agyastyamuni all chose Mt. Kailash as the pristine location to preserve their symbolism of work. The world of mysticism always allures the common man with its magical realism. Everyone wants to explore this world of mysticism but very few can access. Mt. Kailash has located in such a treacherous route one lose hope to complete the trekking. Only the committed devotees can accomplish this pilgrimage tour to establish the soul connection with the divinity. The very idea of the trek around Mt Kailash is a kind of achievement of own self. It is the journey of self-discovery. In the course of the journey, you will start revealing your own identity. You will be subjected to arduous trek to know yourself better. It is an evolutionary process where the pilgrims metamorphose physically and mentally.

 The cycle of Karma and Moksha 


In the branch of philosophy, the human soul is the source of all our wishes and desire. The human soul takes shape under the influence of emotions and desire. If the human mind gets associated with little things then it gets entangled in the maze of desire. In search of happiness, human souls become engaged with actions. Karma is what we mean actions that can either good or bad. As per committed karma, one faces consequences. Consciously or unconsciously human soul becomes an integral part of this karma. So karma is a celebrated concept among the mortals to achieve reward or punishment. What one achieves in life that is the definition of pure karma. When spiritual thinkers suggest of renouncing worldly pleasure they advise to follow the path of righteousness. Human life is all about the continuous process of metamorphosis. So through Kailash yatra, one re-establishes the eternal relationship with the lord. In front of Kailash, everyone becomes a mere entity of mortality.
