The first test of entering Lhasa is to adapt to the challenges brought by the plateau. First of all, all steps must be kept at the slowest pace, walking, eating, and even speaking slowly. This is not difficult for us who practice yoga on weekdays and can adapt to a slow life. What’s more interesting is that once someone tells a joke, they have to remind each other not to laugh, but to slowly “ha…ha…” laugh, which makes people more irritable to laugh.
After leaving Lhasa, during this Tibetan meditation travel I saw a mountain stretching to the next as if it had no end; the lake I saw would be considered the sea, vast and boundless. Every corner can make people find a calm atmosphere and the power of existence: the vastness of Yamdrok Lake, the combination of water and mountains, and the majesty of Mount Kailash and Lake Manasarovar. Or meditation, you can always feel the resonance with the heavens and the earth, the mysterious power surrounded by the universe. No wonder someone said, “You can’t die before you go to Tibet, you don’t want to die if you have been to Tibet!”
On the ninth day of the itinerary, enter the highlight of the journey – worshiping Lord Shiva around Mount Kailash. For a yogi, the ultimate performance of movement practice is to enter a state of Tibet meditation. Meditation retreats located in Tibet are not for ordinary people to just sit quietly and do nothing. Tibetan Buddhist retreat is a complete connection between me and the consciousness itself or the action itself. Is it a heightened realm of concentration and awareness? As a yogi, I travel around Mount Kailash in this state. I walk around the mountain and turn into a mountain. I walk to the mountain, and the mountain also comes to me.
Where is Kailash Parvat located and how long Kailash Manassarovar Yatra takes? It is not easy to walk 54 kilometers at a high altitude of four or five thousand in two days. The oxygen is so low that it can hardly change the breath. However, just like doing yoga, the body is very sore and tight, and you may give up in the next moment, but as long as you return to your breathing, it seems that you have regained plenty of energy and have the motivation to continue. Therefore, from a certain angle, turning a mountain can also be a deep yoga meditation.
Why is Mount Kailash unclimbable? It’s due to the religious respect. All four religions (Hindu, Buddhist, Jain, and Bon) believe that it would be a serious act of disrespect to put a foot on its slopes. Legend has it that the only person to have reached the summit is the Buddhist champion Milarepa and that all others who have ventured against the forbidden have died in the process.
Life is very busy, no matter how busy you are, you should give yourself time and space to breathe. The last stage of yoga practice is the “great rest”. The great rest is not only rest but also an opportunity to reintegrate the inner energy. I chose Tibet, a place with such a pure frequency of energy vibration. Here, it is possible to meet a completely real self that you have never met before, just like in yoga practice.
Note 1: The first master who brought Kundalini Yoga from India to the West in 1968 and spread to the whole world. Through the combination of yoga, science, and spirituality, help the world reach the 3H realm of Healthy, Happy, and Holy.
Note 2: Every person has a completely pure nature, the id, and the original essence of the universe. Once the coverage is cleared, the inner and the true self when you meet, you can understand the meaning of life.
