The legendary Kailash has been worshipped for millennia by the Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, Bons and Jains as the living form of divinity. Located in the trans-Himalayan range in the western corner of Tibet, this breathtaking snow-capped monolith rises to a majestic 22,000 feet above sea-level. The sacred lake of Manasarovar at the foot of Kailash is among the highest freshwater lakes on our planet, located at 15,060 feet and spanning 320 km2 in surface area. Kailash is also the source of four of Asia’s longest rivers. Well-hidden from the eyes of the causal tourist, Kailash still remains a virgin land of rugged natural beauty.
Devout Hindus regard Kailash as the dwelling of the supreme Lord SHIVA and His consort Devi. Tibetan Buddhists believe this mountain to be the abode of Buddha Chakrasamvara, while followers of the Jain religion worship Kailash as the place where Rishabhadeva, their primary spiritual guide, attained liberation. In the Vedic scriptures, Kailash is described as the earthly manifestation of Meru, the legendary mountain which is the source and axis of the universe. In fact, Hindus consider Kailash so sacred that going around the mountain just once is enough to destroy all karmas and grant the pilgrim the ultimate liberation. Over the centuries, innumerable spiritual masters have traveled to this remote spot in the mountains for the vision of Kailash, including the Buddha and Adi Sankara, the 12th century pioneer of India’s Vedic renaissance.
Says His Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda, who heads Madurai Aadheenam, a 1500-year-old spiritual establishment believed to be the world’s most ancient living Hindu organization, ‘You can never capture Kailash in words! Kailash is not merely a place, it is a glorious wordless statement by Shiva Himself! Just as the mitochondria are the energy powerhouses of each human cell, Mount Kailash is the mystical energy powerhouse for the entire Cosmos. Kailash is one of the most powerful energy fields on planet Earth. Over the centuries, thousands of saints have meditated and entered into enlightenment at Kailash, so the very air you breathe carries this intense energy.’
Nithyananda, who personally leads groups of over a hundred pilgrims to Kailash-Manasarovar every year, insists that no matter how much has been said and written about Kailash, nothing can come close to the wonder of being personally awakened to the sacred secrets of this hallowed ground. ‘Kailash is your shortcut to spiritual experience. You don’t have to be a Hindu or Buddhist to experience this. Kailash is a spiritual superconductor, and anyone who enters its field will be taking a giant leap towards their own enlightenment, whether they realize it or not.’
Revered as a living avatar (divine incarnation) by his 15 million followers worldwide, Nithyananda is an accomplished yogi and an adept in India’s mystical yogic sciences like levitation and teleportation. He says, ‘Anything can happen to you in Kailash! Intense kundalini energy awakenings, magical materialization and spontaneous healing of diseases - our group has experienced all forms of energy play here. The important thing is to ensure that you are physically and mentally fit to hold all these energy experiences.’ During the trip, Nithyananda initiates the pilgrims into a gradual kundalini awakening process, to help them receive and hold the higher energies safely.
Nithyananda’s organization goes a long way to ensure a safe trip for their group every year. At least 4 doctors are part of each group, and oxygen cylinders are provided free to those who experience breathing problems at high altitudes. Last year, the entire proceeds of the trip were donated to a non-profit organization working to improve the general safety conditions in Kailash.
For those interested in an unusual holiday, Nithyananda is personally leading a trip to Kailash-Manasarovar between 27 July and 12 August this year.
