Bhagwan Shiv Shankar, the destroyer of ignorance and illusion, resides in the great mountain, Kailash (कैलाश पर्वत), where he sits in a state of perpetual meditation along with Shakti Mata, Parvati. He is the beginning and creator of Yog therefore the ultimate renunciate ascetic, he is god of all common beings, yet he is also the divine master of siddh yogis, sadhus, demi-gods and rakshas.
The word “Manasarovara” originates from Sanskrit language, which is a combination of the words “Manas” “sarovara” manas meaning mind and sarovara meaning lake. According to the Vedic Hindu Dharma, the lake was first created in the mind of the Lord Brahma after which it manifested on Earth.
God cannot be seen or met with limited senses that we all are born with. During Geeta Updesh, Bhagwan Krishn gave divya drishti and power to Arjun as he cannot see, hear Bhagwan Krishn’s Virat Roop and updesh with material senses of humans.
The mysteries and happenings occurring around Mount Kailash cannot be easily explained with limited resources we all have in the human form. We need to gain siddhi practicing celibacy, penance, austerity and piousness for several decades – staying away from this material world where instead we bond with family, colleagues, money and greed.
All these happenings do prove one thing that Bhagwan Shiv Shankar is protecting the world and guiding mother earth (Shakti Maa, Parvati) for the protection and security of human lives.
Historical Proof that Bhagwan Shiv Shankar Reside in Kailash
Deaths of atheists and adharmis proved it.
Mount Kailash is a Mountain That Cannot Be Climbed by Anyone and Should never be attempted to do so !
Russians did deep research on Mount Kailash (originally spelt as कैलाश पर्वत), abode of Bhawan Shiv, and proved that the mountain is indeed axis and nodal point of this world.
One of the ideas the Russians have put forward is that Mt. Kailas could be a vast, human-built pyramid, the centre of an entire complex of smaller pyramids, a hundred in total. This complex, moreover, might be the centre of a world–wide system connecting other monuments or sites where mysteries and unexplained phenomena have been observed.
The idea of the pyramid in this region is not new. It goes back to the timeless Sanskrit epic of the Ramayana.
Sita Mata was abducted by Lankan King Raavan, no one knew where Sita Maa was kept so a huge search exercise was planned with the Sugreev and Vanar Sena (team of chosen beings, monkeys, who were intellectually, physically and mentally far superior from humans of that time, they took rebirth to be a part of leela for avatar of Bhagwan Vishnu to annihilate adharmis/anti-Vedic beings) . The exercise also helpedVanars gain new knowledge about various places in Bharat. The search begins and three mountain peaks of the Himalayas are mentioned, the Kala, Sudarshana and the Devasakha. Across these peaks, Sugreev informs the Vanars, is a vast expanse of barren plain land, crossing which they shall see Mount Kailash.
The ओ३म् (ॐ पर्वत) of Mount Kailash Range
The Locations of Celestial Mounts Given in Ramayan are Accurate
According to Ramayan, the vast expanse of land are the plains of Tibet, and the location of Mount Kailash is geographically correct. There are two ‘Kailash’ peaks in Tibet in today’s maps, but a quick search on Google Maps by looking up ‘Kailash, Burang, Ngari, China’, will pop up the right Mount Kailash. Those who are familiar with Mt. Kailash will recognize the peak and will be able to identify the grooves which are cut horizontally across (popularly referred to as the ‘jata’ of Bhagwan Shiv). An oblong reservoir (or the ‘yoni’) just below the peak, and Lake Mansarover (Mapam Yumco) down at level ground below are also easily identifiable. A look on the zoomed satellite image of the Mt, Kailash at Ngari, Tibet will revel some unique well known features of Mt. Kailash.
Sugreeva then mentions the mansion of Kubera built on Mt. Kailasha constructed by the celestial architect Vishwakarma.
Sugreev instructs the ‘vanaras’ to move ahead. He gives them three more mountain peak landmarks. He mentions Mount Krauncha with a highly impassable tunnel. Like Shiva bought down the Ganges on to Bharat Varsha (earth) from the heavens (Himalayas), his son or his ‘junior’ Skanda is credited with having chiseled a tunnel through Mt. Krauncha. One of the best known ancient tunnels in China is the Guolinag Tunnel in the Taihang Mountains. Up until 1972 only an ancient path chiseled through the rocks of this mountain linked the villages in the area to the outside world. Here is an image of the ancient path of Guolinag which was improved in 1972, not by the government, but once again by the locals. It took them five years to complete the task.
The Mount Krauncha reference given in Ramayan is one of the peaks in the Taihang Range which indicates that the tunnel is very ancient. The path is clearly mentioned in Ramayan: From Kailash (in the Himalayas) to Krauncha (in the Taihang Range), there are many other mountain peaks – namely the ‘treeless’ Mt. Kaama and the ‘abode of birds’, Mt. Maanasa, – that the ‘vanaras’ will see.
The history in Ramayan is referring to these two; Tuanjie as Kaama and Taibai as Maanasa. Sugreev instructs Vanars to scour all these mountains thoroughly in search for Sita Mata. These are the mountains of the Qinling Range which falls between the Himalayas and the Taihang Mountains as the ‘vanaras’ move in the north-east direction from Kailash. The two highest peaks, and therefore most visible, in this chain are the Tuanjie and the Taibai.
Big Pyramids Created by Celestial Beings Matches History of Ramayan
Then Sugreev mentions another peak called Mt. Mainaaka, which is identified by ‘a massive mansion built by demon architect by the name Maya’. Just as the ‘Ram-Setu’ of Ramayan (oldest bridge ever known to mankind) lies exactly in the spot mentioned in the Ramayana, and the Gympie Pyramid of Queensland (Australia) referred in Ramayan as ‘a peak like structure built by the celestial architect Vishwakarma’, Similarly, the ‘Mansion of Maya’ is also located on the same place as referred in China, it is another pre-historical megalithic structure built by ‘celestial beings’ of Ramayan. The maximum number of ancient pyramids of China, whose existence until recently was completely denied, lie in the Shaanxi Province. The chinese govt tried hard to hide these facts but when they failed to decipher their existence, Vedic structure and purpose, they admitted them to be very ancient. The largest one of them, the Xi’an is only 184 Km from the Taibai peak, well on the path of the ‘Vanaras’ mentioned in the Ramayana.
In the entire Himalayan range, from the parts of Bharat (India) to Tibet and parts of China, there lies range of ancient Pyramids (like Mt. Mainakaa is in Shaanxi province). These huge mountain peaks or pyramids are protected by mother of all peaks – Mount Kailash, an abode of Bhagwan Shiv.
Details of Ramayan Proved Correct About Spirituality of Himalayan Range
Sugreev informs Vanars that the next landmark, after crossing over a vast province, would be a large lake by the name ‘Vaikhana”. Travelling North of China, crossing the Mongolian province or plateau, one would arrive at the eastern tip of Lake Baikal in Siberia. Its should be noted that ‘Vaikhana’ is also known as ‘Baikaal’ lake of Siberia.
Sugreev further added that the other (Western) end of Lake Vaikhana, is a river by the name Shailoda, and if the ‘vanaras’ were to follow its path northward, across many miles ‘they would reach the Northern Ocean’. This is indeed true. Shailoda has been identified as the present day Angara. River ‘Angara’ flows from the western tip of lake Baikaal and after many miles falls into the Kara Sea of North Arctic Ocean.
The name Kara has a Sanskrit origin which means tribute or ray of a celestial body. Ancient Indian texts refer to Siberia as Uttara-Kuru. ‘Uttara’ means ‘North’, ‘Kuru’ is the name of the Indian tribe that had traveled north. ‘Kara’, the name of the Sea into which the Angara River falls, is also known to be a distorted form of the ancient Sanskrit name ‘Kuru’. It is also said that ‘Kara’ Sea gets its name from the ‘Kara’ river which falls into it. ‘Kara’ here therefore also refer to the Sanskrit ‘krishna’ (कृष्ण) or ‘kala’ (काल) meaning ‘black.
Bamboo Boats were invented by Vanars of Ramayan
Sugreev instructs the ‘vanaaras’ to cross Lake Baikaal with the help of the ‘keechaka’ (Bamboo) that grows there. This has reference to the ‘Siberian Bamboo Grass’ which was used by the locals to cross the lakes in this region.
Sugreev also tells Vanars that northern lights will become visible as they move northwards from Lake Vaikhana.

There is very beautiful description, In Section 43, Verse 36 of Kishkinda Kand, Valmiki says, “Going beyond that expanse of water, you will come upon a sky, which even when devoid of the stars or the moon or the sun is illuminated by rays, as if there is light emitting from the self-luminous, god-like sages who repose there”. The lights which Sage Valmiki is referring to, is seen since thousands of years which only recently is known as ‘Aurora Borealis’. The scientist community has conflicting views on how it occurs but its answer lies in historical Ramayan.
The last landmark mentioned in Uttara-Kuru is Mt. Soma. Mt. Soma has to be one of the peaks of the Urals. The highest peak in the Urals is the ‘Narodnaya’ – which in the local language means ‘Mountain of the People’. In Sanskrit too the word has the same meaning- ‘nara’ means ‘people’ or ‘human’ and ‘udaya’ means ‘elevation’.
Many rivers and mountains of Siberia have Sanskrit names, including Mt. Mana-Raga, River Kama, Lake Kulind and many many more, proving beyond doubt that Sages once traveled these places to meditate peacefully.
Russians claim that all the mountains shaped in pyramid forms are actually built by super natural humans who were technologically advanced again seconding the details given in Ramayan that celestial beings did built these places.
Axis Mundi or Center of Earth Is The Axis That Make Earth Revolve
Mysteries of Kailash Mansarovar are not mysteries for Devotees of Bhagwan Shiv Shankar
Secrets…Enigma…Mysteries That Russians Claimed to Have Solved
Before dwelling into details of Russian scientists let us see what Vedas say. According to Vedas, there was definite purpose for each creation across the globe; mountains, trees, hills, lake, rivers, Ganges; each of these divine elements were bought or created by Vedic Gods for some purpose.
The reason for the creation of Mountains and Hills by Vedic Gods is give below:
The Purpose of Axis and How It Controls the Seasons, Days and Nights and Weather of the World
The Axis Mundi, the centre of the universe, the navel of the world, the world pillar, Kang Tisé or Kang Rinpoche (the ‘Precious Jewel of Snow’ in Tibetan), Meru (or Sumeru), Swastika Mountain, Mt. Astapada, Mt. Kangrinboge (the Chinese name) – all these names, belong to one of the most holiest and mysterious mountains in the world – Mount Kailash (कैलाश पर्वत).
Both geography and history play roles in the sacred significance of Mount Kailash. This holy mountain rises to an altitude of 6666 meters. It is called mother of all mountains though in terms of peaks in the nearby Himalayan range, which includes Mount Everest, its grandeur lies not in height but in its distinct shape – four sheer faces marking the cardinal points of the compass – and its solitary location, free of neighboring mountains that might dwarf or obscure it. Mount Kailash (कैलाश पर्वत) is regarded as the earthly and eternal manifestation of the Hindus’ Mount Meru, or Sumeru, the spiritual center of the universe, the axis mundi in Buddhist and Jain as well as Hindu cosmology. The area around this great mountain is the source of four life-giving rivers; the Indus, Brahmaputra, Surlej and Karnali, which is a major tributary of India’s sacred Ganges, begin here. To further enhance the symbolic authority of the mountain as a sacred place, two lakes are situated at the base of the mountain. The higher lake Manasarovar (one of the highest freshwater lakes in the world), is the sacred lake, and is round like the sun. The lower lake Rakshas Tal (one of the highest salt-water lakes) is the devil’s lake and has the shape of the crescent moon. The two lakes represent solar and lunar forces, good and negative energies respectively. Lake Manasarovar remains calm irrespective of the weather conditions whereas Rakshas Tal stays constantly stormy.
The most ancient scriptures of the world; Vedas, Purans, Shiv Puran and other Upnishads clearly inform to the human race that Mount Kailash (कैलाश पर्वत) is abode of Lord Shiva. To Tibetan Buddhists, who devised their own religion following Buddha, a Vedic Hindu by birth, Kailash is the abode of the tantric meditational deity Demchog. Hindus see Kailash as the throne of the great god Shiva, being ancient faith, this is considered more authoritative than other religions. Jains who follow Jainism which emerged from Hinduism, also revere Kailash, for them, one of their most significant deities received enlightenment here. Buddhist, Hindu and Jain pilgrims from the world over go to this holy mountain to circumambulate. Climbing Mount Kailas is forbidden (Tibetan monks claims that the only person to have ever been atop the sacred mountain is Milarepa, a 11th century Tibetan Buddhist Yogi). Here it can be seen that all religions that emerged from Hinduism are following ritual and rites of respecting same mountains and hills that Hindus revere as Vedic entities created by Gods.
Long before Buddhism took root in Tibet in the 7th century Kailas was venerated by the adherents of the Bön (or Bnpos or Bönpos), the indigenous, religion of the region who maintained that the mystic region around Mt. Kailas and the Nine-Story Swastika Mountain was the seat of all power. When viewed from the south face, a swastika can indeed be seen. According to Bön accounts, while the circumambulation is made (anticlockwise, whereas followers of the other religion walk in the clockwise direction) 18 powerful and enlightened teachers will appear in this eon including Tnpa Shenrab, the most powerful of them, the founder of the Bön religion. He is said to have been born in the mythical land of Olmo Lung Ring, whose location remains something of a mystery. The land is traditionally described as dominated by Mount Yungdrung Gu-tzeg (edifice of nine swastikas), which many identify as Mount Kailas.
Legends of a mythic land were spread throughout the centuries and became of interest to philosophers, adventurers, theologists and even… political leaders! It received many names: Shambhala, Shangri-La, etc., and many locations have been suggested: the Tibet plateau, the Gobi desert, the Altai, but the Mount Kailas range is most frequently named. Like many westerners, Frank Scassellatii was impressed by the divine ambiance of Mount Kailash range and wrote below which best describes the curious mixture of past and present, mysticism and reality:
There Lies a World Hidden, Mysterious, unknown, and forbidden. Where dwell entities with technologies beyond our comprehension, And knowledge kept hidden from us, in this other dimension. Will the truth ever be revealed? Earthly forces of power and greed forever sealed, Forbidden knowledge for warfare to wield. When humankind understands, To use the knowledge acquired from these strange lands. For the benefit of humankind, Then entrance into their world we will find.
The interest has been universal. Tsar Nikolai Romanov had some connection with Tibet through the monk Badmaev, who was himself closely associated with a highly placed Tibetan, the lama Agvan Dordzhiyev, tutor and confidant of the 13th Dalai Lama. Dordzhiyev equated Russia with the coming Kingdom of Shambhala anticipated in the Kalachakra texts of Tibetan Buddhism. The lama opened the first Buddhist temple in Europe, in St. Petersburg, significantly dedicated to Kalachakra teaching. One of the Russian artists who worked on the St.Petersburg temple was Nicholas Roerich, who had been introduced by Dordzhiyev to the legend of Shambhala and to eastern thought. George Gurdjieff, another mystic who had some impact on Western thought, knew Prince Ukhtomsky, Badmaev, and Dordzhiyev. Gurdjieff was accused by the British of being a Russian spy in Central Asia, a pupil of the mysterious Tibetans. Even Marx had contacts with Tibetan lamas as did Lenin who met some of them in Switzerland. What were these people interested in and what attracted them to Tibet? The beauty of the mountains or the mysticism? The desire to find the remains of lost civilizations or the desire to learn how to acquire extreme power so as to govern the world?
Not only contacts with lamas, but even expeditions were organised in this area. What, for example, brought about the odd juxtaposition of Tibetan lamas and German SS officers on the eve of World War II? The search for lost remnants of an imagined Aryan race hidden somewhere on the Tibetan plateau? Or some other reason? It is known that Nazi leaders such as Heinrich Himmler believed that Tibet might harbour the last of the original Aryan tribes, the legendary forefathers of what was considered the German race whose Aryan leaders were supposed to possess supernatural powers that the Nazis thought they could use to conquer the world. Ideas about an Aryan or master race began to appear in the popular media in the late nineteenth century.
In the 1890s, E. B. Lytton, a Rosicrucian, wrote a best-selling novel around the idea of a cosmic energy (particularly strong in the female s*x), which he called Vril Later he wrote of a Vril society, consisting of a race of super-beings that would emerge from their underground hiding places to rule the world. The Vril Society claimed to have links to Tibetan masters, apparently drawing on the ideas of Madame Blavatsky, the theosophist, who supported the existence of super-beings in a mystic land which she described in such well-known works as the Secret Doctrine. She claimed to be in telepathic contact with spiritual masters in Tibet and confirmed that she was receiving this information from them. Failing to show any ancient text proof or technological supportings or correct base, most of the intellectuals branded the secret doctrine theories as a form of propaganda based on misnomered self-belief. Most of the theories are built up either using concoctions of Vedic texts or simply reversing them shows that these people did believed in Vedas but have no courage to admit them in their non-Vedic society.
Scientists Failed on Experiments of Ancient Science, Species Creation So Devised Alien Theories and Evolution
The Answers to Ancient Science and Species Creation Lies on Truthful Vedic Texts and Not Fake Alien Theories
Nikolai Roerich went to the region of Tibet where he spent several years. Depending on the source, the reasons for his mission vary, from purely botanic studies in the region of the Gobi desert on behalf of the US Government to political and spiritual. He may have been inspired by Kalachakra teaching and legends of Shambhala while working at the painting of St.Petersburg temple, described above. His painting “The Path to Kailas” can be seen in the New York museum dedicated to his work. He devoted many years to the search for this mystic land.
Many of these people were ready to believe in the existence of the super-natural in whatever form – higher intelligence, power, or energy. This interest remains strong to this day in many countries, to find this axis mundi, the most powerful place, the highest power, or the hidden intelligence in whatever form it exists, if indeed it does. Nor should one ignore recent Russian studies of Tibet and the Kailas range in particular, the results of which, if true, could radically alter our thinking on the growth of civilizations. One of the ideas the Russians have put forward is that Mt. Kailas could be a vast, human-built pyramid, the centre of an entire complex of smaller pyramids, a hundred in total. This complex, moreover, might be the centre of a world–wide system connecting other monuments or sites where paranormal phenomena (mysteries which cannot be solved by human beings) have been observed.
UN Special Information on Mount Kailash (कैलाश पर्वत)
As per UN Special, the pyramidal complex are also proposed by the Russians in modern times. Though the idea of the pyramid in this region is not new. It goes back to the timeless Sanskrit epic of the Ramayan. Since then, numerous travellers, especially in the beginning of the 20th century, have expressed the view that Mount Kailash (कैलाश पर्वत) is too perfect to be a totally natural phenomenon, or at any rate give the appearance of human intervention.
For example: In shape it (Mount Kailas) resembles a vast cathedral (the scientific concept of Idol worship emerged from Hinduism)… the sides of the mountain are perpendicular and fall sheer for hundreds of feet, the strata horizontal, the layers of stone varying slightly in colour, and the dividing lines showing up clear and distinct…… which give to the entire mountain the appearance of having been built by giant hands, of huge blocks of reddish stone. (G.C. Rawling, The Great Plateau, London, 1905).
Vedic Scientists believed that it is actually the Sahasra Chakra in our body, which is center of Supreme Consciousness (Shiva). When Kundalini reaches there She meets Shiva. The Physical counterpart is Mount Kailash, where the energy of Shiva is centered in material earth. According to Hindu texts, Bhagwan Shiv resides at the summit of the Kailash. Using indepth knowledge of Vedas, the research done by Robert is shown in representational pictorial form.

However, it is only fair to add that the Russian claims to have discovered in the Mount Kailash (कैलाश पर्वत) or Mt. Kailas area the highest ever human-built pyramids were denied three years later by Chinese scientists in the official Chinese Press, it is the same press which denied all the mysteries around Mount Kailash (कैलाश पर्वत) because they had no specific answers. Of human construction or not, Mt. Kailas is one of the most mysterious, secret and at the same time one of the most holy and sacred mountains of Asia, if not of the world) the circumambulation of which has for many centuries or possibly many millennia remained a vital pilgrimage, symbolising the life’s stages of death, purification and rebirth. Buddhists and Jains refer to the circumambulation as khora, Hindus as parikrama even most anti-Vedic people do tawaf in Kaaba following same Vedic ritual. A single circumambulation equals one turn of the Wheel of Life and will wipe away the sins of one’s life, twelve circumambulations will purify one’s karma for all past and future lives, enlightenment is attained after 108. Even one khora presents an extremely difficult task since the mountain is difficult of access and dangerous.
Dangers or not, some of us may dream of discovering for ourselves what there is to be seen on this mountain. Pending this adventure, Wolf Scott decided to speak to some of the few people who have circumambulated the mountain and recorded their personal experiences, to ask for their records and to interview them.

Hindu God’s Creation: Tibetan Research Unlocking The Accuracy Pointers
Tibetan international scientific expedition of 2003-2004 (University of Munich, headed by Professor K. Figelman, Nobel laureate) got sensational results: there is global, planetary system of the pyramids! Spotted an undeniable connection between the complex Tibetan pyramids with other buildings of antiquity — the Egyptian and Mexican pyramids, giants of Easter Island, Lebanon Baalbek and Stonehenge in England … The height of the main pyramid of Tibet — Mount Kailash — is just 6666 meters. Distance from Kailasa to the North Pole is 6666 kilometers, the distance from Stonehenge to Kailash is also the same 6666 kilometers, and in the end, is 6666 kilometers from Stonehenge to the middle of the Bermuda Triangle!
Unsolved mysteries of Mount Kailash Which Can Be Comprehended By Vedic Hindu Texts
Secrets of Mount Kailash Is Not Possible to Be Known By Limited Materialistic Human Minds
The Secrets of Mount Kailash Mansarovar That Suggest It Is Indeed Abode of Divine Hindu God Shiva
The height of the pious Mount Kailash is 6666 meters. It is axis of the mother earth and maintains the atmosphere of the world which keeps all living beings alive. The mother of all mountains is the concentration of the four major rivers of India, Tibet and Nepal: the Indus, Karnali, Sutlej, Brahmaputra.
The second anomaly which is unsolved around mountain Kailash are two lakes — Manasarovar knows as God Lake and Rakshas Tal known as Devil Lake. They are located next to each other divided with a thin isthmus of the mountains, as if to show the difference between Good and Bad.
Manasarovar is a lively and clean water fresh lake revered by Hindus since thousands of years before any other religious people. Tibetans also revere the lake located at 4560 above sea level as sacred. From it you can take water for drinking and bathing. Interesting it kept scientists very much baffled because in any weather, Manasarovar remained calm, letting humans reap benefits of the holy water.
Based on the same locations and atmosphere, Raksas Tal (Dead Lake or Lake Demon) is salt lake created just beside Fresh Water Lake Mansarovar. The Salt lake is constantly stormy, regardless of weather conditions; which is shocking for geologists since it is located in the same place. No one wants to come near to the Lake even touching the water of the lake is prohibited, not to mention the fact that no one dares to swim on the dead lake, Raksas Tal. Scientists the world over are unable to decipher the peculiar difference between two lakes.
The unsolved natural riddle of pious Mount Kailash is that time travels too fast which is not seen any where in any place in the world — the rapid aging of those who are near it. Quicker growth of hairs, nails perplexes people – 12 hours spent near it is equivalent to two weeks in normal conditions.
Though no one dares to climb the abode of Divine Gods who come here to respect Lord Shiva and Parvati Mata. The mountain mysteriously changes the target installation to those who approach very closely to it, and those who want to climb it, all of a sudden get set to go in the opposite direction. Despite numerous attempts to defy Hindu Vedic texts, expert expeditioners failed to climb the summit of Mount Kailash. Lord Shiva himself does not want climbers to face the wrath of attempting to climb the mountain. That is the reason, the position of tracks are changed. The divine intervention is not to cause any problem to the innocent humans who are naive and ingenuous. Because in their insanity, these climbers are disrespecting the mountain since they are not following the sacred practice of elevating consciousness to meet Lord Shiva and Divine Gods. Only enhancing consciousness level while following Vedic principles can make one eligible to meet Hindu Gods. No materialistic equipments, technology can make the expedition a success. Mount Kailash (कैलाश पर्वत) is mother of the world of mountains and axis of the earth.
Very interestingly intriguing is the geographical position of Mount Kailash Range which controls mysterious mountains of Easter Island, which are located exactly on the opposite side of the globe. Easter Island is known to be very famous for many unsolved mysteries: gigantic stone idols and wooden planks.Click on the image for an enlarged view
The Sun God respecting Lord Shiva in Mount Kailash (कैलाश पर्वत) — the place that is found in the two ridge dividing it. In the evening, the shadow cast by the rocky outcrops on it draws a huge swastika.
Scientists who study the mountain and its secrets, and those who could see firsthand the Kailash as the one claiming that it has a pyramidal shape, assert that the mountain, like all known pyramids, strictly oriented to the cardinal points.
Many researchers believe that the foot and at the middle level of the mountain has voids. This assumption give grounds for scientists, geologists and climbers to consider: Mount Kailash — it’s unnatural, ancient structure raised the unknown to someone unknown.
Another unfathomable mystery of Mount Kailash is its geographical position in relation to other ancient monuments and the Earth’s poles. For some unexplainable reason for all of us; the distance from Stonehenge to Kailash is also the exactly 6666 kilometers. The distance from the Mount Kailash to the north pole is 6666 Km, and to the South Pole is exactly twice the distance to North Pole. The mother of all Mountains, Mount Kailash is located in sync with all major monuments of the world. The Distance between various monuments are: Kailash to North pole – 6666 Km; Kailash to Stonehenge – 6666 Km; Egyptian pyramids to North pole – 6666 Km; Stonehenge to Devil’s tower – 6666 Km; Stonehenge to Bermuda triangle – 6666 Km; Bermuda triangle to Easter island – 6666 Km; Easter island to Tazumal – 6666 Km;
One of the most “mysterious” secret of Mount Kailash is at its adjacent, the sarcophagus Nanda. Having completed a number of studies, the researchers found the presence of cavities inside the sarcophagus. Ancient Chinese legends say that the sarcophagus serves as a refuge in which a state of deep meditation (somatic) are all great teachers, Bhagwan Krishna, Jesus, Buddha, Confucius, Zoroaster, and other Hindu sages sent to the world for its existence. The purpose of their centuries-long stay — as they say – the preservation and restoration of the human gene pool in the event of the death of civilization. All great sages meditate Lord Shiva in the mountain range of Mount Kailash.
Above all secrets, according to all religions and Hindu Dharma that revere the mountain, setting foot on its slopes is a dire sin. It is claimed that many people who ventured to defy the warning have died in the process so Mount Kailash has never been climbed & climbing Mount Kailas is stricly forbidden.
It is a popular belief that the stairways on Mount Kailash lead to heaven.
History of holy places around Mount Kailash range were spread throughout many centuries, has attracted millions of Hindu devotees, other religious people and also became of interest to philosophers, adventurers, theologists scetist and even… political leaders! It received many names: Shambhala, Shangri-La, etc.
Summary of The Post on Mount Kailash, Mysteries and Its Sacredness for Hinduism and Other Religions
Mt. Kailash is as mysteric as its size. A great mass of rock soaring to over 22,000 feet, Mt. Kailash has the unique distinction of being the world’s most venerated holy place at the same time that it is the least visited. The supremely sacred site of Hindu dharma and 3 other religions and billions of people, Kailash is seen by no more than a few thousand pilgrims each year. This curious fact is explained by the mountain’s remote location in far western Tibet. No planes, trains or buses journey anywhere near the region and even with rugged over-land vehicles the journey still requires weeks of difficult, often dangerous travel. The weather, always cold, can be unexpectedly treacherous and pilgrims must carry all the supplies they will need for the entire journey.
The landscape around the mountain is rugged and dry but crossed by crystalline blue streams and other bodies of water. Near the sacred mountain is the source of the Indus, Sutlej and Bramaputra rivers and on its south side are two freshwater lakes, the easternmost of which is the highly sacred Lake Manasarowar (Mapam). With an altitude of 14,950 feet, Mansarovar is the highest body of fresh water in the world. The other lake, Rakshastal, also has legendary significance. According to Vedic Hindu texts, Shiva, the god of destruction and regeneration, resides at the summit of a legendary mountain named Kailasa. Mount Kailasa is regarded in many sects of Hinduism as Paradise, the ultimate destination of souls and the spiritual center of the world. According to a beautiful description in the Puranas, Mount Kailash’s four faces are made of crystal, ruby, gold, and lapis lazuli; it is the pillar of the world; rises 84,000 leagues high; is the center of the world mandala; and is located at the heart of six mountain ranges symbolizing a lotus. From it flow four rivers, which stretch to the four quarters of the world and divide the world into four regions.
Kailash is sacred to other religions which emerged from Vedic dharma, Hinduism. The Jains call the mountain Astapada and believe it to be the place where Rishaba, the first of the twenty-four Tirthankaras attained liberation. Followers of Bon, Tibet’s pre-Buddhist, shamanistic religion, call the mountain Tise and believe it to be the seat of the Sky Goddess Sipaimen. Additionally, Bon myths regard Tise as the sight of a legendary 12th century battle of sorcery between the Buddhist sage Milarepa and the Bon shaman Naro Bon-chung. Milarepa’s defeat of the shaman displaced Bon as the primary religion of Tibet, firmly establishing Buddhism in its place. While the Buddha is believed to have magically visited Kailash in the 5th century BC, the religion of Buddhism only entered Tibet, via Nepal and India, in the 7th century AD. Tibetan Buddhists call the mountain Kang Rimpoche, the ‘Precious One of Glacial Snow’, and regard it as the dwelling place of Demchog (also known as Chakrasamvara) and his consort, Dorje Phagmo. Three hills rising near Kang Rimpoche are believed to be the homes of the the Bodhisatvas Manjushri, Vajrapani, and Avalokiteshvara.
Pilgrims to Kailash, after the difficult journey getting there, are then confronted with the equally arduous task of circumambulating the sacred peak. This walking around the mountain (clockwise for the Buddhists, counter-clockwise for Bon adherents) is known as a Kora, or Parikrama, and normally takes three days. In hopes of gaining extra merit or psychic powers however, some pilgrims will vary the tempo of their movement. A hardy few, practicing a secret breathing technique known as Lung-gom, will power themselves around the mountain in only one day. Others will take two to three weeks for the Kora by making full body prostrations the entire way. It is believed that a pilgrim who completes 108 journeys around the mountain is assured enlightenment. Most pilgrims to Kailash will also take a short plunge in the nearby, highly sacred (and very cold) Lake Manosaravar. The word ‘manas’ means mind or consciousness; the name Manosaravar means Lake of Consciousness and Enlightenment. Adjacent to Manosaravar is Rakas Tal or Rakshas, the Lake of Demons. Pilgrimage to this great sacred mountain and these two magical lakes is a life changing experience and an opportunity to view some of the most magical scenery on the entire planet. No pilgrims climb Mt. Kailash; all four religions believe it would be a serious act of sacrilege to set foot on its slopes. Legend has it that the only person to have reached the summit is the Buddhist champion Milarepa (who flew to the top in the 12th century) and that all others who have ventured to defy the warning have died in the process.The mountain is located in a particularly remote and inhospitable area of the Tibetan Himalayas. Only those in the best health are able to undertake the journey even to the starting point of the circumambulation, let alone walk 52 km in a single day. A few modern amenities, such as benches, resting places and refreshment kiosks, exist to aid the pilgrims in their devotions.
How to Reach Mount Kailash
Most pilgrims begin their journey overland from Kathmandu or Lhasa. From there, they travel over the Tibetan plateau (ranging 10,000-16,000 feet in elevation) in a rented Jeep. It is a long journey with four night stops in camps, finally arriving at Darchen (elevation: 4600 m).
Western visitors usually need a guide, vehicle, driver, and a military permit to visit Kailash, all of which are arranged on tours from Kathmandu or Lhasa. The short version of the tour takes 14 days and cost around ¥15,000 ($1,950), which can be split among four travelers. The longer 21-day tours run about ¥17,000 ($2,210).
The circuit around Mount Kailash typically begins and ends in Darchen, where foreigners must register and pay an admission fee to the Kailash area (currently ¥100). Popular hostels in Darchen include the Yak Hotel and the Darchen Guesthouse, where dorm beds are available for under $10.
