Kailash Mansarovar

The Yatra is mainly known for two things: doing a Parikama of Mount Kailash and taking a holy dip in the Mansarovar Lake. These are said to relieve pilgrims of any sins and bringing salvation to them.
The holy Lake of Mansarovar in Mount Kailash is the holiest pilgrimage site to the devotees of Hinduism. Each year thousands of devotees undertake the scared journey through the mountains and plains of Nepal and China to reach this sacred land in Tibet.
According to Hindu religion, the Mansarovar Lake was first created in the mind of the Lord Brahma. Hence, in Sanskrit it is called ‘Manasarovar’, which is a combination of the words Manas and Sarovar. The lake, in Hindu mythology, is also supposed to be the summer abode of swans who are considered as very wise and sacred water birds. It is also believed the Devas descend to bathe in the lake between 3 and 5 at the crack of dawn and the time of the day is known as Brahma Muhurta - Brahma auspicious time.
It is the abode of lord Shiva and his divine consort Parvati. It expounds the philosophy of PURUSHA and PRAKRITI - SHIVA and SHAKTI. The radiant Silvery Summit is the throne of ‘TRUTH, WISDOM and BLISS.
The primordial sound AUM from the tinkling anklets of LALITA PRAKRITI created the visible patterns of the universe and the VIBRATIONS from the feet of Lord Shiva weaved the essence of ATMAN - the ultimate truth. The spreading resonance and limitless patterns constitute the grosser forms of all matters to accurate scale.

The silvery mount is the apex where the sound and the light merges and the true Yogi transcends both these and merges into OM. Mind is the knot tying consciousness and matter this is set free here. This is the heart of Indian Philosophy and civilization and the grand Manasarovar reflects the total Shaivam consciousness.
