Om Namah Shivay ! Har Har Mahadev
As per Hindu religion 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). It is also belived that Mount Kailash is the abode of Lord Shiva. 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.
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. Just 20 kilometers away from Mount Kailash, the sacred blue and emerald green Manasarovar lake that lies at a height of 15, 015 ft, is known to be an epitome of purity, containing healing properties and the power to wash off all mortal sins.
