About this Item: Vajra Books, 2014. Soft cover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. Contents: 1. Mt. Kailash, the holiest of mountains. 2. Preparation for a Mt. Kailash Pilgrimage. 3. The Kora of the Great Lakes and Holy Mt. Kailash. 4. The Barkor, the Middle Kora. 5. The Takor, the Outer Kora. 6. Inner Kora paths and the Nangkor concept. 7. The iconographic landscape. 8. References, Appendices and Glossary. Mt. Kailash in the far west of Tibet is one of the holiest mountains in the world, worshipped by Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and Bonpo. During the last two decades, Westerners too have set out for this remote region. Due to the improved infrastructure their numbers, and those of Indian pilgrims, have increased massively. Aside from Mt. Kailash, there are other goals for pilgrims and tourists: Lake Manasarovar, Tirthapuri and the historical Guge kingdom, and the sources of the four major rivers Brahmaputra, Karnali, Sutlej and Indus. After several Mt. Kailash pilgrimages in the years 2002 - 2013, the author describes the whole region in detail and the recent trend to develop it as a center of tourism, supported by the improved accessibility on paved roads. In Tibet pilgrims perform the Kora, a circumambulation of holy sites. As with other holy mountains, there are several paths for the Kora of Mt. Kailash. Those who performed it twelve times, are entitled to walk the "Inner" Kora. However, in the horse year of the Tibetan calendar cycle, this condition is already fulfilled by a single Kora. The horse year 2014 will therefore see large numbers of visitors, pilgrims and trekking tourists, from many countries. The "Inner" Kora is a path leading directly into the south face of Mt. Kailash. However, it does not lead around the holy mountain itself. Instead, it goes around Mt. Nandi, an outlier of Mt. Kailash. The author describes not only the "Inner" Kora, but also a real Inner Kora of Mt. Kailash: he rediscovered paths long forgotten and succeeded in exploring new ones. The exceptional views of the holy mountain on these paths and their astonishing resemblance with the iconography of the deity residing in the mountain are explained and demonstrated with illustrative graphic representations of an artist.
