From the beginning of human civilization, from the times of the origin of the Anatomically Modern Man in Tibet and India, the ‘Sanatana Dharma’ formulated the bond between the people of India and Tibet. These people participate in ritualistic worship of Mountains, and of bodies of Water such as the lakes and rivers which shape their earthly living experience. They seek the presence of the LORD God Creator in the acts of His Creation.

The first batch of 58 Kailash-Mansarovar pilgrims reached Tibet today through the Lipulekh pass.
The pilgrims crossed over into Tibet through the Lipulekh pass located at 17,500 feet on way to Kailash-Mansarovar at 8:15 am, said Ashok Joshi, General Manager of Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam or KMVN, the nodal agency for the yatra.
“All the members of the batch are safe. They were found medically fit by Indo-Tibetan Border Police or ITBP doctors during a check-up at Gunji.
“The batch will return to the pass after spending seven days in Tibet where the pilgrims will have a darshan (view) of the holy Mount Kailash believed to be the abode of Lord Shiva. They will also take a dip in the sacred Mansarovar lake,” Mr. Joshi said.
Besides the first batch, two other batches of pilgrims have also reached close to the Lipulekh pass, he added.
