I have become habitual of a pooping eye reaction when I tell people that I met the god in real during Kailash Mansarovar Yatra. I know reading this, you must be wondering what I am saying. Therefore, I will request you to give this blog a whole read before dismissing just as a click bait story of Lord Shiva abode at Mount Kailash. Because it is NOT! I did experience its presence and I am going to put the whole experience here and shall try to explain the meeting with the god during Mount Kailash trek, to the best possible. I would also like to tell you that it might not be easy for people to understand this story but read it with an open mind, especially for the people with a spiritual bend. There is a reason why Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is known to be life transformative because it changes your perception towards certain things in life.
As we started proceeding towards the west face of Mount Kailash on our Day 1 at Lord Shiva’s abode, I was stopped and asked have you ever met a GOD in REAL? Obviously, oblivious to what this person meant, I nodded a NO. “Come, I will make you meet the GOD now. Be prepared with your wishes. They grant” I was told jokingly.
I thought to myself that this person might be pulling my leg but I should also admit that by that time my mind already started envisioning imaginary images of probably Lord Shiva at Mount Kailash, which also led me to frame this story on the spot: My meeting with the god during my journey of Kailash Mansarovar Yatra!
Obviously, I didn’t realise what this person actually meant but while I was walking around the sacred Mount Kailash, I was stopped midway and asked “Did you meet the god now?”
The moment I was thrown with this question, I stood there: CONFUSED as I was trying to understand what just happened. I have heard many stories from different people, where they have claimed seeing the Lord Shiva or his eyes while doing the Parikrama around Mount Kailash. But, then I didn’t notice anything which left me thinking for a moment: God? What? Where? I guess I missed it, something which ran in my mind
“You can see them. They are right there” as he pointed towards a Tibetan couple who was bowing down and up, offering prayers around Mount Kailash. This is traditionally known as the DANDVAT PRANAM
From where they are getting this energy to do this, crossed my mind as I was trying to catch the breathe, taking some rest during Mount Kailash trek. “Seeing them changed my perception about the GOD in 2015, during my third visit to Lord Shiva’s abode and I just wanted you to meet them too” this person said as we proceeded further towards Deraphuk, the North face of Mount Kailash
But not before my mind jolted with a question: Who is God?
I am not a religious person or I should say I don’t believe in the religion the way it has been taught to us. I don’t believe in the existence of god the way it has been shown to us. So, allow me to mention this as well that I am not writing this story with an inclination to fascinate anyone or as they say a click bait story. This story is purely based on my observation and experience during Kailash Mansarovar Yatra and I really wanted to share this with you all
But, not being a religious person doesn’t mean that I don’t recognise a force that guides us. I am a spiritually inclined person which simply means that I recognise that our conscious is more than just a body. We are a product with infinite possibilities that can be explored from within us.
And that is what stuck me when I saw them performing Dandvat Pranam around Mount Kailash. A god is defined as a supreme being who is above any material universe and his existence personifies faith. And that is what I felt when I saw them. A supreme powerful being who doesn’t care about materialistic things and their existence will only make you believe and faith stronger.
There is a power with each one of us which is acts as our guidance force for everything. Now, you can call this as god or your own consciousness. It is upto you on how you want to define this experience. But, the truth is that each one of us is blessed with that one supreme power which remains our guiding angel for the rest of our lives. All you need is a little belief and faith to let you illuminate you. Ignite your inner consciousness. Ignite your inner god as I thought to myself and as I said, I am glad to meet god in real at the abode of Lord Shiva in Mount Kailash, during my Kailash Mansarovar Yatra trek
