Kailash Helicopter Tour from Lucknow Full moon Mansarovar Lake on 26 August 2018 (Janai Purnima)

In this world, though people living in different places follow different religions, their ultimate faith is in God as omniscient and omnipotent. The holy Mount Kailash (6714m) is perceived differently by different religion followers. Such as, Hindus believe it as an abode of Lord Shiva and his wife Parvati. For Buddhists, it is the meditating spot of Lord Buddha. Jain worships it as a place for liberation and Bon-po as a ‘Pillar of the Universe’.

Yamadwar (Gate of Heaven) is the beginning spot of Kailash Parikrama (Circumambulation). Those who cannot proceed from here can round the Yamadwar and return back as well. This provides them satisfaction as of circumambulating Mount Kailash itself. There are different mythological stories associated to this black bulky peak.

An autonomous region of china, Tibet is a significant pilgrimage destination as it is sacred home to Mount Kailash and Mansarovar Lake. Accepting the strenuous journey of circumambulating the Kailash Parvat to have divine view of Shiva’s abode is to attain release from the clutches of ignorance and delusion of life. It is believed that one can obtain ultimate Salvation: ‘Mokshya’ by doing Kailash Korra. Moreover, nature lover can also be closer with the diversity of flora and fauna on the same rounding.

Mansarovar Lake: Just in the middle of Mount Kailash and Mount Gurla Mandata (7728m) there is another important pilgrimage destination, Mansarovar Lake (4580m). In Sanskrit language, the meaning of this Lake is ‘Consciousness of Mind’.

It is believed that this lake is called as Mansarovar to show omnipotence of Lord Brahma (god of creator). Buddhist believes it as a place where Lord Buddha meditated and obtained Knowledge of reality of life. Hence, drinking its water and taking holy bath into this Lake is believed to be the means of getting ultimate Salvation purifying oneself from all bad deeds of our life. It opens door to heaven if done with right intention and peaceful mind as per ancient mythologies.
