To each pilgrim Kailash speaks differently. Hindus cross the frozen mountain passes of India and Nepal to circle the peak that is Shiva's throne and bath in the lake created from the Mind-Manas or Brahma. Buddhists journey from Ladakh, Bhutan, Nepal, Mongolia and every corner of Tibet to this holiest Mountain which they call "Kang Rinpoche" the "Precious Snow Mountain". The Jain religion knows Kailash as Mount Asthapada and to the Bonpo followers of Tibet's old pre-Buddhist beliefs; it is the "Nine-Storey Swastika Mountain", the mystic soul of the entire region.
