Pilgrimage Kailash Mansarovar

General Info.
Kailash Mansarover - 865 Km from Delhi, stand Mount Kailash and Lake Mansarovar constituting one of the grandest of the Himalayan beauty spots. Mt. Kailash is the revered Mansarovar Lake, the eastern lake of two in the region. At an altitude of 14,950 ft above sea level, Mansarovar is the highest body of fresh water in the world. It is a remarkably beautiful site, with waters that glisten a clear blue near the shores and a deep emerald green in the center.

Mt. Kailash, 6,740 m. is situated to the north of the Himalayan barrier, wholly within Tibet. It is the perfect mountain with awesome beauty, with 4 great faces. It is the spiritual centre for four great religions: Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism, the Jain religion and the pre-Buddhist animistic religion - Bonpo. To Tibetans it is known as Khang Rimpoche (Precious Jewel of Snow) and they see it as the navel of the world. It is said that a stream from the mountain pours into a nearby lake and from here rivers flow in the four cardinal directions. The River of the Lion Mouth to the North, the River of the Horse Mouth to the east, the River of the Peacock Mouth to the south and the River of the Elephant Mouth to the West.

Strangely enough, four major rivers do indeed originate near Kailash, the Indus, the Yarlung Tsangpo (Brahmaputra), the Karnali and the Sutlej. Tibetans believe that it is the residence of Demchog, a fierce looking tantric deity who lives there with his consort, Dorje Phagmo. For the Tibetans also, it is a particularly special place in that their poet saint Milarepa, spent several years here meditating in a cave.

History
In June, 1998 when H.H. Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji, H.H. Swami Gurusharananandji and H.H. Sant Shri Rameshbhai Oza (Pujya Bhaishri) went on yatra to the sacred land of Mansarovar and Mt. Kailash, in Tibet, they saw the desperateness of the local situation. There were no medical facilities for hundreds of kilometers. People frequently suffered and even died from basic, treatable ailments, such as altitude sickness, due to lack of medical attention. There was no indoor place to stay - all had to camp in tents.  This complete lack of facilities deters many pilgrims from journeying to this holy land, as well as makes the pilgrimage very difficult for those who are not in the healthiest condition.

Main Highlights of the Yatra

Parikrama of Lake Mansarovar:

n the glorious sunshine, we drove the full parikrama of Lake Mansarovar, having the clear darshan of Mt. Kailash the entire time. Finally, at the most perfect point, with Mt. Kailash towering above directly behind the Lake, we stopped and everyone had a group snan (bath) as the rishikumars chanted sacred mantras. We also performed a special abhishek ceremony after everyone had a snan. For hours, Kailash remained perfectly clear and its reflection shone in the crystal clear waters of Lake Mansarovar. On the return to our ashram, we took the route via Rakshastal and had darshan of Rakshastal as well.

If you have ever been on the sacred yatra to the lands of Mansarovar and Mt. Kailash in Tibet, then you need no description. For your eyes, themselves have beheld the divine splendour of the land. If you have never been on the yatra, then the words are insufficient. The experience defies explanation.

Mansarovar and Mt. Kailash are two of the holiest pilgrimage areas to devotees of Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Bonism and many other faiths. Each year thousands of devotees undertake the treacherous and rigorous journey through the mountains and plains of Nepal and China to reach this sacred land.
