In Quest of God free pdf Lake Manasarovar, an expanse of sparkling blue water sprawling over several miles, and the snow-clad Mt. Kailash, are considered by Hindus to be the centre of the universe. The lake is believed to be the seat of Brahma the Creator, and Mt. Kailash the abode of Lord Shiva and his consort, Parvati. The entire area covering many thousand miles is an oasis of peace and serenity. In Quest of God: A Pilgrimage to Kailash-Mansarovar traces Monisha and Nitish Bharadwaj's pilgrimage to this remote and holy place. The journey, beset by snowstorms and landslides, was a supreme trial of human endurance. This book serves as a practical guide as well as a documentation of the deeper spiritual significance of their pilgrimage.
