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
