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.
