Mukteshwar Kshirsagar and Gauri Kshirsagar
Foreword by His Holiness The Dalai Lama
Crystal Lighthouse Productions presents a never-before literary offering - two scintillating accounts on one subject in one book by two writers who are a husband-wife duo.
Mukteshwar takes the readers on a pilgrimage to the holy Mount Kailaas, which he has visited thrice. He portrays the Kailaas he actually saw and lists his learnings during the voyages and how those moments of Divine Experiences impacted his persona and convictions. This part is titled "Enigmatic Kailaas: Glimpses of Eternity."
Gauri visited on four occasions the Kailaas-Mansarovar region in Tibet, which is a revered land for billions of followers of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Tibetan Faith.
In her work titled, "Enigmatic Kailaas: On the Trail of the Infinite," she unveils a host of information and exotic details about this heritage of mankind through the prism of evolution, geography, scriptures, and folklore.
While part 1 has the potential of igniting a desire in a reader to undertake this ultimate yatra (pilgrimage), assimilating part 2 can make the voyage immensely rewarding.
This book carries with it a foreword by H.H. The Dalai Lama and blessings by H.H. Shri Shankaracharya of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham and P. P. Swami Tejomayanand of Chinmay Mission - all great spiritual authorities.
The cover page captures that moment on the banks of Mansarovar when the authors, in a meditative state, received the divine message to write about the treasures found in the environs of the ENIGMATIC KAILAAS.
