Generally, in India, most yogis and mystics choose mountain peaks because they are not frequented by people, they are safe places. They choose rocks to deposit their knowledge in an energy form.
Mount Kailash is the greatest mystical library. Right from Shiva, the first yogi — in the yogic culture, we don't see Shiva as God; we see him as the Adiyogi, the first yogi, and the Adi Guru, the first Guru. Many yogis stored everything that they knew in Kailash in a certain way, in a certain energy form.
So, if you are visiting Kailash, you are like an illiterate person going to a huge library. Let's say, you are illiterate and you walk into a mega-library. Everybody is sitting there and reading all kinds of books on various subjects. You don't know a word of it, but you will be overwhelmed. If you want to read it, you have to start from ABC. You have to learn the fundamentals of how to decipher life, starting with yourself. So, right now, you need vision, otherwise you can't be educated.
When you get the alphabet, then you would like to read the sentence. When you read the sentence, you want to read the book. When you read the book, you want to know everything. Unless you have a taste, you will not even incline yourself into that direction. Let's say the whole society is illiterate, then they will never think of reading anything. But if someone knows reading, they will look at him and say, “Wow!” What empowerment, just because he can read. He would be regarded like the village man who happens to be the only person who can read letters.
If you really want to decipher and know these different dimensions, you have to put in a certain amount of investment, time, and life. But if you just want to feel the power, you can come to certain spaces, be there, feel the power, enjoy it, take something and go. The grace of it is available, but the knowledge of it takes application.
