Where I stayed
There is an urge in me to continue seeking enchanting sights that lie beyond, to travel slowly and without a care. Programmed schedule is always mentally and physically tiring, but then we did not have the liberty of choice
There was never a dull moment in our yatra. It has been a remarkable journey. Lady luck was on our side. We had wonderful weather through out. No illness, except minor ailments like cough and cold, head ache or slight fever. No one suffered high altitude sickness. Praise be god for His mercies, all of us enjoyed the yatra and are back to share the happy and thrilling moments with others as I have done here..
I know now after a long and eventful journey that nothing is possible and complete without His grace and presence. I do not see Him but always feel that He is there by my side. He manifests in the beauty that is there so much everywhere. He is there in the smiles of pretty little flowers that bloom in the wilderness. I see delicate poetry written in everything of His creation which only His tender hand tirelessly at work can create. We are only an infinitesimally small and insignificant part of that which is unimaginably and unbelievably so big and awesome. The awesome Himalayan landscape makes us aware of the Power that shapes and rules our destiny This very thought is enough to puts our egos away and generate love and compassion; the compassion or karuna for all living beings and the nature, and treat His creations lovingly, tenderly and delicately
I am glad I made an attempt to write my Memoirs of Kailash-Mansarovar Yatra. (It may come in book form some times later. Presently I have placed it in the internet site http://www.travelpod.com/member/kailashi for all interested to read and send comments.) While doing so I was again under the glorious spell as I roamed all over again and again in that wilderness; the land of gods and abode of lord Shiva and felt as if I was there mentally and physically. I have said what I saw and felt. At times my imaginations had overriding influence but those are my feelings which came out spontaneously.
I am back but my heart remains there in those astonishing landscapes of rugged grandeur, peace and serenity, of bright blue cloudless skies, where song of solitude refuses to leave your company and can be heard everywhere you go, and where all worldly concerns seem trivial and you revel in ocean of joy and lost in Devine Song. Those wild trails, majestic twin lakes and snowy Mount Kailash, the silence of the hills and valleys beckon me and I can hear them. I wish if I could make it one more time. Presently however, I want to live the moment, to be free and a part of the glorious new dawn which is on its way to arrive with rosy smile a short while from now as the sun shines on my doorsteps.
And the ENDLESS SONG continues........
