Mount Kailash - the Abode of Lord Shiva

Owing to the fact that Mount Kailash is the holiest and sacred abode of Lord Shiva, Kailash holds huge religious merit. The history of Kailash is narrated on the verge of diverse holy books of Hindus. The Srimad Bhagavatam Mahapuran, a holy book of Hindus, states Rudra happens to be the complete incarnation of Omnipotent Lord Shiva. 

The incarnation of Shiva, which was five faced, made an abode at Kailash, which is beyond destruction, even after the destruction of the entire universe. Kubera, who lived in Kashi, prayed to Lord Shiva. After granting the boons of Kubera, Shiva decided to live close to Kubera in the human form of Rudra and moved to the Kailash mountain. This way, Shiva resided in the beautiful Kailash mountain. The omnipotent shiva, controller of the entire cosmic universe, made his abode to this holiest mountain, world-famous as Mt. Kailash. 

According to Vedas, the existence of everything on this planet has some purpose behind it. The mountains, trees, hills, lakes, rivers and every single creation have a definite purpose. The reason for the existence of all the creation of this universe has assorted values as mentioned in the Vedas. Vishnu Puran states “Earth rotates by the will of Brahma, firstly it rotates on its axis, secondly it revolves around the sun. Days and nights are distinguished when moving on its axis. The seasons change when it revolves around the sun.” The axis Mundi, the centre of the universe and navel of the world lies around the ordinates that belong to Mount Kailash.

The lower lake, situated in the lower segmentation of Manasarovar is devil’s lake and has the shape of a crescent moon. 

The glacial beauty of Kailash, Mansarovar resembles the solar and lunar forces whereas the Rakshastal resembles good and negative energies. It is the popular belief that, while doing a kora, pilgrims should not look at the Rakshas Tal. The presence of some mysterious power in these two lakes is also predictable. The Lake Mansarovar remains calm and tranquil whereas the Rakshas Tal remains stormy.
