Mount Kailash is the biggest sacred mountain not in just Hindu religion but many other religions as well. In Jain and Budh religion, Kailash is also known as Mount Meru.
According to Jain scriptures, Ashtapada, the mountain next to Mt. Kailash, is the site where the first Jain Tirthankara, Rishabhdev, attained moksha (liberation).
Vajrayana Buddhists believe that Mount Kailash is the home of the buddha Cakrasaṃvara (also known as Demchok), who represents supreme bliss.
Bön, a religion native to Tibet, maintain that the entire mystical region and Kailash, which they call the "nine-story Swastika Mountain", is the axis mundi, Tagzig Olmo Lung Ring.
MOUNT KAILASH IS CENTER OF WORLD
Axis Mundi, the centre of the universe, the navel of the world, the world pillar, Kang Tisé or Kang Rinpoche (the ‘Precious Jewel of Snow’ in Tibetan), Meru (or Sumeru), Swastika Mountain, Mt. Astapada, Mt. Kangrinboge (the Chinese name) – all these names, belong to one of the holiest and most mysterious mountains in the world – Mount Kailas.
Kailas mountain rises to an altitude of 6714 meters and is smaller than the nearby mountains in himalayan range but its speciality lies not in its height but in its mysterious shape and radio-active energies by pyramids around it.
While all hindus who visit Kailas mountain, take a dip in Lake Manasarovar (in sanskrit, Manas=mind (of Brahma, the creator and Sarovar=Lake), they avoid Raksha Taal near Mount Kailash where bathing is prohibited. It is said that Ravana took bath in that lake and now no ones take bath because who ever baths in the water of Raksha taal they get disfigured or become Rakshas (inherit such qualities).
Ravana, the King of Lanka wanted to take Mount Kailas to his kingdom. He tried to up Mount Kailas and leave for Lanka but could not lift it.
Why a King wanted to take Mount when he had everything in world. It may be because Kailas was a nuclear power plant which Ravana wanted to place in Lanka.
After touching radioactive source, Ravana carried nuclear residue which was left in Lake RakshasTaal after he bathed in it. Now whoever bathes in radioactive water will get disfigured due to ill effects of radiation.
Mount kailash is the only mountain which is illegal to climb. There has been many attempts to climb this mystic pyramid but all have recorded failure. British climbers Hugh Ruttledge and RC Wilson, Austrailian geologist Trichy,Russian mountaineer Sergei Cistiakov and many more have written testimonies about this mountain and recorded the presence of many powerful energies and mysterious experiences.
MOUNT KAILASH RESEMBLES MAN-MADE PYRAMID
Mount Kailash somewhat unusual shape has led to speculations that perhaps the mountain is not a mountain at all. Russian scientists have suggested that the top of Mount Kailash is actually a giant man-made pyramid from ancient times. Now, if this is true, then human history has to be re-written. It would mean that this is the largest known pyramid known today.
Scientists who have studied the mountain's topography and structure say that it has a pyramidal shape, and not unlike all known pyramids, is strictly oriented to the cardinal points. "The results of recent Russian studies of Tibet and the Kailash range in particular, if true, could radically alter our knowledge on the growth of humanity and civilizations. One of the theories that the Russians have put forth is that Mt. Kailash could be a vast, human-built pyramid, the heart of an entire complex of a hundred smaller pyramids.
RAPID AGING OF BODY NEAR MOUNT KAILASH
Another mysterious aspect about the mountain concerns the rapid aging of those who visited the area. After spending 12 hours in the region, the length of nails and hair is equal to two weeks in normal conditions! Is this caused by some energy surrounding this mysterious place ?
