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.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
