Description Contents
 
This book is a travelogue of Mount Kailash covering almost all the historical and spiritual places of the area in detail. Through my reading I felt that if Gedun Chophel, the most famous Tibetan scholar of the 20th century, added a chapter on visiting Mount Kailash to his Grain of Gold (gTam rgyud gser gyi thang ma), it would resemble this very book: Mount Kailash: The Mirror, Ngari, Tibet.

This region is the origin of many Asian rivers that eventually reach the Indian Ocean. Mount Kailash and Manasarovara are sacred to all the Asian religions--Bon, Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism. Particularly it is the site of great spiritual miracles performed by Kagyupa masters such as Milarepa, including the battle between Milarepa and Naro Bonchung which is recounted in this book.
