In the far west of Tibet is Mt Kailash
or Kang Rinpoche, the most sacred mountain
in Asia venerated by Buddhists, Hindus,
Jains and the ancient Bon Po religion
of Tibet and is considered the centre
of the universe & the most holy place
in the world for both Hindus and Buddhists.
For many centuries Tibetan and Indian
pilgrims have been making the 53km circuit
or kora, of the mountain which supposedly
wipes the sins of a lifetime, enticement
enough. This circumambulation is clockwise
for Buddhists and Hindus and anti-clockwise
for bon followers.
