According to Hinduism, one of their three main gods Lord Shiva Resides on top of Mount Kailash, where the sits in a state of meditation along with his wife Parvati, the Daughter of Himalaya. The Kailash Parvat is believed to be the ultimate destination of souls and the spiritual center of the world. Like Mount Kailash, Lake Mansarovar is the abode of purity. It is a place of pilgrimage, attracting Hindus from all over the world. Taking a bath in Mansarovar and drinking its water is believed to cleanse all sins committed over a hundred lifetimes.
Eighteen miles southeast of Kailash is the circular, turquoise Lake Mansarovar or Tso Rinpoche (precious lake) a 64-mile circuit, which is rarely completed except by the most devout. Bathing in the lake, or even dousing ones head with the holy water is said to be of enormous spiritual benefit to those who can brave the icy water which many claims contain miraculous powers. Hindus who walk around the 32 mile circumference of Mount Kailash use the term Parikrama. Tibetans refer to the clockwise circumambulation as a Kora. Both words mean the same thing: pilgrimage. The parikrama of Kailash Parvat is an essential part of your overall journey to Mount Kailash. Trekking through this long path is difficult and physically taxing. However, with proper preparation devout pilgrims are able to complete this Parikrama. Hindus are told that complete immersions into the lake ensure that they will be reborn as a god. There is no place more powerful for practice and more marvelous than their abode of god.
According to mythology, humans need to visit Manasarovara once in their lifetime to live a meaningful life.A Single circumambulation around Mount Kailash wipes away the sins which have happened knowingly or unknowingly. So visit Mount Kailash and get rid off of the miseries of your life.
