Is a physical journey the necessary path to spiritual evolution? Kailash Manasarovar:A Sacred Journey dwells on this question and perceives the possibility for the three stages of inner transformation during the journey, using the Devi Mahatmayam as a metaphor. The journey shows that it takes just a shift in perspective to behold the divine in the mundane. By eroding the conditioning of our essence, the journey helps us connect with a pure centre, marking the beginning of interactions which are actions, rather than mere reactions to situations. From this point on, it is in maintaining a heightened awareness of one?s emotions, memories, surroundings and companions that makes the journey more meaningful.

108 Shiva Chromes by Threesh Kapoor So far as our knowledge goes, the Kailash and Mansarovar are the holiest of the holy places in the Himalayas. In the surroundings of the Holy Kailash and Mansarovar even the most wandering mind, to whatever religion may belong, whether to Hinduism or Buddhism, Christianity or Mohamdanism, whether to atheism or agnosticism, becomes concentrated and irresistibly, unknowingly and unconsciously drawn as if propelled by someone from behind to the Divine Presence that is hidden behind this apparent vast universe.

At the feet of Shiva The trek to Kailas Manasarovar is more than a pilgrimage . It
is fulfillment of a dream . It is the realization of the highest aspiration of life . After
all , why do people travel hundreds of miles to circumambulate a mountain and a
to the continuation of tradition of anticlockwise circumambulation of Kailash by
the Bons. ... He lived there in winters too and circumambulated Holy Kailash
twentythree times and Manasarovar twentyfive times and Rakshas Tal one time.

Will we make it? That's the question Kavitha and her cousin, Pallu, ask themselves as they trek through Himalayan pine forests and unforgiving mountains in Nepal and Tibet. Their goal: to reach Mount Kailash and Lake Manasarovar. The two women walk to ancient monasteries, meditate on freezing slopes, dance on the foothills of Kailash, and confront death in the thin mountain air. In Kailash and Manasarovar, the holiest of Hindu and Buddhist sites, they struggle to reconcile their rationalist views with faith and the beloved myths of their upbringing. Remarkably, it is this journey that helps them discover the meaning of friendship. Walking in Clouds is a beautifully crafted memoir of a journey to far-away places and to the places within. It mixes lyrical, descriptive storytelling with stunning photographs to bring to life a unique travelogue.

Far from the glittering cities of Beijing and Shanghai, China's borderlands are populated by around one hundred million people who are not Han Chinese. For many of these restive minorities, the old Chinese adage 'the mountains are high and the Emperor far away', meaning Beijing's grip on power is tenuous and its influence unwelcome, continues to resonate. Travelling through China's most distant and unknown reaches, David Eimer explores the increasingly tense relationship between the Han Chinese and the ethnic minorities. Deconstructing the myths represented by Beijing, Eimer reveals a shocking and fascinating picture of a China that is more of an empire than a country.

Kailash - The Heart and Soul of Tibet There are few places on Earth comparable to the mysterious, stunningly beautiful and completely isolated Mt Kailash, which lies well hidden in a remote and deserted region of western Tibet. In order to understand the importance of holy Mt Kailash it is necessary to know that it is considered the legendary abode of the gods. One circle around the mountain (54 km) is symbolically one revolution of the wheel of life or the cycle from birth to death. This, simultaneously, brings about the purification and forgiveness of all sins committed in this lifetime. This is the land of the Sun. In this spot I started to understand the difference between the world that I was coming from and the one that was standing before me. This is without doubt the most beautiful spot on Earth. This is Shambala! These were moments of great happiness, when all the struggles of travelling are forgotten and replaced by sheer joy. This is the physical and spiritual climax of the pilgrimage because the Drolma La pass is considered the most holy spot on the trail and arrival there marks the beginning of a completely new life.
