– Sadhguru


The Kailash Parvat or Mount Kailash along with the holy Manasarovar lake is deeply integral to the heart of spiritual Asia, capturing the imagination of human beings since time immemorial.

In Jainism, Kailash, referred to as Mount Ashtapada, is the place where the creator of their faith, Rishabhadeva, attained freedom from the cycle of life and rebirth.

According to Hindu legend, the lake was first created in the mind of the Lord Brahma. Hence, in Sanskrit it is called Manasarovar, which is a combination of the words ‘Manas’ (mind) and ‘Sarovar’ (lake).

Tibetan Buddhists profess that Kailash is the home of the Buddha Demchok who symbolizes supreme harmony.

The Tibetan religion of ‘Bon’ believes Mount Kailash as their spiritual seat of power.

Hindus also believe Mt. Kailash to be the abode of Lord Shiva, the holy centre of the earth and the manifestation of heaven itself.


For these reasons and more, a pilgrimage for Kailash Manasarovar Darshan is an intense spiritual experience, complete with the inclusion of meditation sessions, satsangs (spiritual discourses) and much more.
