Few mountains in the world rival
the grandeur of Mount Kailash (6714m) , the
famed holy peak in Western Tibet. Kailash has
long been an object of worship for four major
religions. For the Hindus, it is the domain
of Shiva. It is also the abode of Samvara-a
multi armed, wrathful deity worshipped in the
Chakrasamvara Tantric cycle of Tibetan Buddhism.
The Jains of India also revere the mountain
as the site at which the first of their saints
emancipated. And in the ancient Bon religion
of Tibet, Kailash was the sacred nine storey
Swastika Mountain, upon which the Bonpo founder
Shenrab alighted from heaven.
Sprawling below Mount Kailash
is the sacred Lake Manasarovar (4560m), where
a ritual bath will deliver a pilgrim to Brahma's
paradise and a drink of its water relinquishes
the sins of a hundred lifetimes.
The 53 Km Kailash circuit is the
holiest of all Tibet's pilgrimages and the beacon
which draws most travellers to Western Tibet.
It is said that a Single Parikarma erases the
accumulated sins of a lifetime, while 108 circumbulation
will achieve Salvation Or Nirvana.
