PHILOSOPHY OF BEHIND PILGRIMAGE:
The “Beloved” is not “love” itself but merely an entity which stimulates the ever-dormant love energy resides deep inside our being to an active state. Likewise, “SHIV ” being a supreme energy is not someone or something to look outside in a geographical figure, idol or temple. Undoubtedly, Kailash being a consecrated space filled with divine energy collectively by humans since ages make it a powerful entity which could fire the energy of an observer which was kept dormant under the illusionary state of “MAYA”. Yatra / pilgrimage is a sacred practice available to us humans since the time immemorial which symbolizes the man’s meeting with almighty.

Kailash which is said to be the abode of shiva does not ask for your visit merely but an enquiry, a finding, a deep observation and undivided attention. The curiosity of finding the essence of “SHIV” in every spec of journey is that which we consider a true pilgrimage. Keeping this philosophy of discovering the “SHIVA ENERGY” not somewhere else out but inside the deepest core of our own unconscious beholds the true meaning of “FINDING SHIVA “, not just visiting or reaching its abode but to spot its presence in every subtle movement of nature we all going to experience while yatra. Yatra which starts with the flowering of the very first seed in our mind; watered and nourished by our heart and desired by our soul. ” Your eyes may miss the sight of his abode, his symbol (ॐ) might hide behind the clouds with his due permission, but you never miss the chance to walk on his path, the path which proceeds not anywhere from, the path which is nowhere destined to, the path which has no thirst of reaching anywhere but of infinite findings”. The path of that “which is not”
