Journey to Land of Shiva
Journey to Land of Shiva
Description
About The Book:

Mount Kailash, the abode of Lord Shiva. The very thought of it fills the mind with a feeling of awe and profound reverence. A journey to this place is the ultimate for a devout and indefatigable pilgrim.

The Hindus, Tibetans and Bonpos have revered Kailash and Manasarovar for thousands of years. The Hindu scriptures describe Mount Kailash as the land of Lord Shiva and his consort Parvati. The Tibetans call it the jewel of snow. Lake Manasarovar is believed to have been created from the mind of Lord Brahma. Its Calmness and serenity are sublime. Having a dip in it is a transcendental experience.

The book, a travelogue, distils the experiences of the author, who led the12th batch of yatris to the holy places in the summer of 2001. It capsules the mythology associated with the different places en route. The author has also thrown light on the Buddhist rituals and way of life in a part of Tibet which has a deep spiritual affinity with India

The book should be a education to the inquisitive. It should also bean Inspiration to those wanting to undertake the arduous but spiritually uplifting journey to the land of the Supreme Being who, in the words of Sam Veda is above the known and the unknown

About The Author:

The author, Pankaj Kumar Singh, is an officer of the Indian Police Service. He did his graduation in Physics (Hons) from Delhi University and MBA from IIM, Ahmedabad. His love for adventure and travel made him join the police in 1988. He was posted in different parts of Rajasthan and also served on deputation to the United Nations. Presently he is serving in the Central Bureau of Investigation

The author has trekked extensively in Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, the Hills of Uttaranchal and also cycled from Mumbai to Rameshwaram along the sea coast

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
