In the next posting we will see the sacred places of Mother Parvati in Kailash .
The fifth aspect (face) of the Lord( Kailash ) is "Ishaan" . at the top of the peak, facing up to the sky. This face is the one that bestows blessings on mankind. Thus the five faces of the Lord represent five acts of the Lord.
The glacier at the feet of Shiva Sakthi from which the four rivers flow in four directions of Asia can be seen clearly from these photographs.
This face, faces upward and so it is difficult to witness this face from ground while doing the parikrama. This picture is the photo taken from helicopter.
