STARRY (starheart.erdhein): I quote here from Kelly, Thomas and Carroll Dunham and Ian Baker; Tibet: Reflections from the Wheel of Life; Abbeville Press; New York; 1993
A great mass of black rock soaring to over 22,000 feet, Mt. Kailash has the unique distinction of being the world’s most venerated holy place at the same time that it is the least visited. The supremely sacred site of four religions and billions of people, Kailash is seen by no more than a few thousand pilgrims each year.
How long have people been coming to this sacred mountain? The answers are lost in antiquity, before the dawn of Hinduism, Jainism or Buddhism. The cosmologies and origin myths of each of these religions speak of Kailash as the mythical Mt. Meru, the Axis Mundi, the center and birth place of the entire world. The mountain was already legendary before the great Hindu epics, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, were written. Indeed, Kailash is so deeply embedded in the myths of ancient Asia that it was perhaps a sacred place of another era, another civilization, now long gone and forgotten.
Hindus believe Mt.Kailash to be the abode of Lord Shiva…..For a Hindu, to make the arduous pilgrimage to Kailash and have the darshan (divine view) of Shiva’s abode is to attain release from the clutches of ignorance and delusion.
Kailash is sacred to other religions as well.
For Tibetans, pilgrimage refers to the journey from ignorance to enlightenment, from self-centeredness and materialistic preoccupations to a deep sense of the relativity and interconnectedness of all life. The Tibetan word for pilgrimage, neykhor, means “to circle around a sacred place,” for the goal of pilgrimage is less to reach a particular destination than to transcend through inspired travel the attachments and habits of inattention that restrict awareness of a larger reality……..By traveling to sacred sites, Tibetans are brought into living contact with the icons and energies of Tantric Buddhism. The neys, or sacred sites themselves, through their geological features and the narratives of transformation attached to them, continually remind pilgrims of the liberating power of the Tantric Buddhist tradition.
From a previous article I wrote: Mount Kailash in Tibet “is the place of triggering the infusion of the rays of Mazuriel into the earth. Thus, it is the point that will bring together and prepare the Temples of Venus. If you see the roil point of the planet (Hawaii) and the Mazuriel point (Mount Kailash), you will find that they communicate…the former brings quickens the center of the earth and the later opens the stargate of Mazuriel to flood into the earth.”
Gathering with ThothHorRa at the Unity Round Table on New EarthStar Island in Second Life – 2/20/11
ThothHorRa Khandr: ~|~ ANU KA
I SEE EACH ONE OF YOU TODAY…as you abide in my heart. Your lights shine brightly for me…more so than these particles around us.
Let us take some moments as you adjust your vision and “look” at each avatar sitting here today with us…and see them and their HOSTS as light flames…simply look around at each one…as they give off a light particular to the HUMAN BEING they represent.
Your human bodies are composed of starlight from the Big Bang of the creation of the universe.
Through my eyes I see each of you (the real you) as star beings shining forth.
We will return to this later but for now let us take ourselves as one MERKABAH to Mount Kailash.
We journey there in LIGHT BODY ALL TOGETHER
In your mind…visualize my body growing brighter…light expanding from it…this is the merkabah in which I shall transport you to the Sacred Mount. With Starheart ‘s help you shall see an example of this light on your screen…if you will, allow my light to FILL YOU…and as it does…so we come together in a lighted cloud of BLISS…of LOVE. Through the clouds you see the earth way below..as we sail over the white mountains…high above…and now in the midst of the great scene of earth and sky, arises KAILASH…from the breast of the MOTHER…the point on the EARTH so saturated with STARS as to be the heavenly resting place of the Angels on Earth.
We alight as a feather on the ground before HER Majesty . We are between the vast lake of Her Blessing and her Heavenly Abode. Here we feel her embrace . She calls to us to open to the splendor WITHIN. She anoints us from her tears and kisses us with her ancient prayers…the SILENCE of her words. It is upon this mountain that the SUN LORDS keep their Earthly Abode. It is here that the Great Dragons breathed the Fire of Creation into the land.
Please turn music on now.
REACH UP TO THE STARS AND DOWN TO THE DEPTHS OF THE EARTH…
INVITE THE WHALES AND DOLPHINS AND THE EAGLES TO JOIN YOU
KAILASH SPEAKS TO YOU…HER WORDS OF CREATION…THE CODES OF FIRST SONG
OR’UUM AKA NISH TIBIM
LAK TEH KHAMAN ASIK
TE’USHU NEESHI KPHATA
A’SANGHA TALAK TASMUM
SEECU NEPAK TAMAM TUI
TO BE A STAR! TO OPEN THE SKY AND FIND THE CRYSTALS OF FIRE AT THE HEART OF THE UNIVERSE!
NOTHING IS BEYOND YOUR BEING TO SEE, KNOW AND BECOME!
See yourself as sitting as we are now…yet the GREAT LADY MOUNTAIN is before us
WHAT WOULD YOU TELL HER OF YOUR SACRED JOURNEY TO TOUCH THE HEM OF HER ROBES?
FROM YOUR HEART…SPEAK OF YOUR PILGRIMAGE
NOW COME TO DRINK DEEPLY OF HER WATERS…AT THE EDGE OF THE SACRED LAKE…WHOSE WATERS ARE FROM THE PRIMORIDAL SEA…THE REMNANTS THEREOF
I thank you for being on this journey with me today…may you carry it in your heart as a true path.
