The Back Road to Kailash

In this week's Spot, Sadhguru sends us word from his rugged back road adventure to Kailash. "This land still trembles with the footprint of Shiva. Camping at the edge of the river surrounded by mountains that change color by the hour. Beauty is one thing but the sheer power of this place is transcendent." Enjoy!
 
 
 
 

It has been an incredible week that is truly indescribable. I am not articulate enough to describe the terrain, its forms, shapes and colors – too many for anyone even to grasp.

Last two days we have had the fortune of being ensconced on the banks of a tributary of the Indus River, pretty close to the Pakistani border. A few kilometers from the Geke Town, which is in the upper region of the Indus Valley Civilization. The word “Hindu” is a mispronounced version of “Sindhu” – representing the peoples of this land. Referred to as “Hindustan” through the ages, now we have the Anglicised version “India” referring to the land of Sindhu.

This land still trembles with the footprint of Shiva. Camping at the edge of the river surrounded by mountains that change color by the hour. Beauty is one thing but the sheer power of this place is transcendent. A day of quietness and Sadhana have left me in a new state of invigoration and freshness.

Left Geke at 9am, here at Manasarovar at 7pm, driving through harshest terrain with no roads. Pushing the Toyota through rivers and deserts has been exhilarating. None of the other cars have arrived yet; that is, at 8.30pm. Here I am penning the Spot and there is a Sathsang at 9pm for the other group who has arrived, taking a shorter route from Saga. They have all arrived driving on a bus upon a well-laid highway.

After nearly 500km of rough terrain, I am feeling like it is still early morning. In His fathomless company I do not know fatigue.

Tomorrow we will be trekking to Kailash. This is the 7th year in a row but I am more than excited. May all know the power and ecstasy of Kailash...

Love & Grace

I saw and did pranam to Sadhguru when he reached Mansarover....
This before sathsang and dinner.
Sadhguru was a dynamic force with us at the lake and at Kailash and we, almost 173 of us luxuriated in his presence....
High point of our lives, without doubt.

Sadhguru, Pranams! The breathtaking picture of Manasarovar , combined with your description of it send me into a peculiar state of mind that i am unable to express. cant be a substitute for being there ...... but few seconds ..... i have not felt like that before. Attended your inner enginnering programme at Nagercoil, though I had done the prog earlier done by Maa Trijagathi.....I dont know tamil, but I seemed to understand every word of what you said . just being in your presence is ...............Dr Rita Zarina

Aah, the memories - more than memories from having been blessed to visit Manasarovar and Kailash in 2010. The aliveness or sheer energy remains with us and comes through Sadhguru's blissful Spot.

What an amazing photo that explodes with the energy of Shiva.....Sadhguru's words are the garland that makes the energy of this possible for all of us to taste. Thank you Sadhguru for All of you Aliveness, Love, Adventure and Bliss.....how fun, I am there with you all and I didn't even have to buy a ticket.
In Love

Pranam Sadhguru, I have heard you speaking that Shiva is your partner, also that Shiva could have come from out of planet as he is described as Yakshswarupa, also that Shiva came back after 12 years as he was not aware of Ganesha and so on... On the other hand i also heard you speaking that Shiva is that which is NOT and is the fabric of the universe.. this seems a riddle to me and seek clarity from you.. What is Shiva and what is my relationship with Shiva ? Is Shiva omni-present or not ? Does Shiva come from the highest level of vibrations ? - At feet in humble ignorance..

Simply beautiful. One can feel the energies flowing in this post. Shambho!

Your every word takes us unexplainable levels. We feel secured under your ambit.
Pranam Sadhguru!

10 hours from Guge site to Manasrovar? This means you had not taken the high way 219!!! It must have been a real adventure drive. I wish I had been there :)
