Kailash Yatra is believed to be the physical embodiment of the mythical Mt Meru, said to be the centre of the universe or ‘navel of the world’. Mt. Meru is depicted as a mandala, and its image occurs throughout both Buddhist and Hindu parts of Asia. Mt Kailas is holy to followers of four religions. To Hindus, Kailash is the abode of Shiva and nearby Manasarovar Lake is the means or soul of Brahma. Tibetans call Kailas Kang Rimpoche. Jains worship it as Mt Ashtapada, the peak from which the religion’s founder, Rishabanatha, achieved spiritual liberation. Followers of Bon-Po, the ancient pre- Buddhist shamanistic religion of Tibet, revere Kailas as the soul of Tibet. Kailash Yatra has long been an object of worship for four Major religious, for Hindu, 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 joints of India also reverse the mountain as the site at which the first of their saints emancipated.

It is said that a single Parikarma erases the accumulated sins of a lifetime, while 108 circumambulations will achieve Salvation.

Lake Manasarovar: At Hindu pilgrims make an 85km. the circuit around Manasarovar that is made longer and more difficult by marshes and complicated stream crossings. The Tibetans, being more pragmatic, often make a circuit of the lake in the winter when the streams are frozen and the route is shorter. Near Manasarovar is another large lake, Rakshas Tal, the ‘Demon Lake’ that holds far less spiritual significance.

Sprawling below Mount Kailash is the sacred Lake Manasarovar (4510m), where ritual bath will deliver a pilgrim to Brahm’s paradise and drink of its water relinquishes the sins of a hundred lifetimes.
