Kailash Manasarovar Sacred Walks

I have been to many truly sacred places, I have been to many truly powerful places. I have seen many powerful beings, when I bow down to them I am genuine, but I bow down to them a little less than I would bow down to my Guru, always. Now when I bow down to Kailash I bow down to it the same way that I would bow down to my Guru. Never before have I done that in my whole life. - Sadhguru

Regarded as the spiritual centre of the universe, Mt. Kailash is revered by Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and Bonpos alike. For Hindus it is on top of this wondrous peak that Lord Shiva resides in an eternal state of meditation, creating the sustaining force that holds the universe together. Tibetans have aptly named this mighty rock as 'The Precious Jewel of The Snow'. It is here that the great Tibetan mystic, saint, and poet Milerapa wrote a hundred thousand poems on Buddhism. For Jains, Mt. Kailash is the site where their first prophet achieved enlightenment. For the ancient religion of Bon, it is where their founder descended from the heavens.

Legend according to Tibetan tradition has it, that whenever a certain number of realized beings gather in this location, Gautama Buddha physically manifests himself.

Isha Sacred Walks offers the pilgrims an opportunity to discover the beauty and sacredness of Mt. Kailash. Guided and enveloped by intense meditation processes and satsangs, the seeker can feel the explosive power of these sacred mountains, thus unraveling the forces of life and our own ultimate potential.

Twenty kilometers away from Mt. Kailash lies Manasarovar, the most beautiful and sacred lake in Asia. It is named by the Tibetans as 'The Unconquerable Lake' and sits at a height of 15015 ft, with a circumference of 90km (56 miles). Being the highest source of fresh water in the world, this blue and emerald green lake is attributed with healing properties.

The path to Mt. Kailash and Lake Manasarovar takes the seeker through Nepal and Tibet, where an array of temples and stupas, ancient architectures and colorful bazaars are explored and enjoyed.
