Mount Kailash is Lord Shiva’s Holy Heavenly Home

For many ages doing the Kailash Manasarovar Yatra has always been the favored way for one to show devotion and obedience to the Lord Shiva. This prompts many Hindu devotees according to the ancient holy texts (Ramayana and Mahabharata) to undertake the difficult and hard pilgrimage (Yatra) all in reverence of Shankar Begawan.

For in the Hindu holy trinity Lord Shiva is revered and worship as the dissolving force of the universe. Dissolving or death is the believed medium for the potential of recreation through rebirth or reincarnation. Therefore, Mount Kailash is believed to be the center of the universe and the source of creative power that radiates all around.

It’s no coincidence therefore that the holiest peak believed to radiate creative power and the center of the universe dwells in proximity to lake Manasarovar. Manasarovar which means Lake of Consciousness and Enlightenment has long held a stupendous adulation and reverence in the eyes of the Yatris (pilgrims).

For Yatris who takes a Snan (holy bath or dip) in its sacred waters are believed absolved from their past lifetime sins. It’s equally believed the washing away of sins brings one closer to the consciousness associated with the Lord Shiva’s holy and divine dwelling place at mount Kailash.
