When Sati immolated herself in the yagna Fire, Shiva was immensely grieved. His life changed, and he became hermit. He abandoned the world and Immersed himself in deep meditation and rigorous Sadhna. He retired into the Himalayas and practised Vairagya. Vairagya is mental detachment from all the connections of the world. Vairagya is Indifference and disenchantment with all worldly things. Shiva lives in the cremation grounds and smears himself with ashes. Shiva teaches that this body that we are so proud of will become ash one day. What better example could there be of disenchantment with the living world. Vairagya means sacrificing everything even while living, gives himself up to the funeral grounds, not expecting anything from the world. Vairagya is dispassion. Vairagya is detachment. Vairagya is indifference to sensual enjoyment. Vairagya is born of Viveka, or discrimination between Nitya and Anitya (Eternal and non-eternal), Sat and Asat (Real and unreal), Tattwa and Atattwa (Essence and non-essence). Viveka comes through selfless service done in several births and through worship and adoration of God and through the Grace of the Lord. From Viveka is born Vairagya. It gives spiritual strength. A man of Vairagya has no attraction for the material world. So Vairagya is a supreme, inexhaustible wealth for spiritual aspirants. Vairagya aids concentration of mind and generates strong yearning for Emancipation. Vairagya is a mental state whereby the mind does not run into sensual grooves. It moves towards Atman, towards God. You may live in a palace and yet have absolute Vairagya. Even amidst the temptations of the world when you are not affected by the attractive objects of the world. One may go to the forest renouncing the kingdom and yet will not be established in Vairagya as you are attached to the body, attached to your little belongings. You see a Vairagi with body is smeared with ash, but he will fight for a rupee if he finds you giving a rupee to another Vairagi. So Vairagya is a mental disposition, living amidst luxurious things, but mind remains Unpolluted! 💀👁💀 #Artist #painting #worship #spiritulgrowth #himalayas #uttarakhand #storiesofindia

From @shubham.mansingka - A blustery wind blew unabated, As I waited... The bridge at Tsazar. Could not be crossed by car and I waited, For I am used to waiting On my journeys... What are you waiting for ?
'Myself.' Clicked around the broken bridge of Tsazar near the kingdom of Zangla, Zanskar.

Zanskar or Zangskar is a subdistrict or tehsil of the Kargil district, which lies in the eastern half of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. The administrative centre is Padum.

A year ago today I put my body to its hardest test ever, climbing Everest without supplemental oxygen. I gave myself a 40% chance of summiting that morning, and was on a hair trigger to turn around if any symptoms of HAPE or HACE appeared. But luckily they didn't, and at last I stood here, becoming the 195th person to summit without Oz and the 3rd to combine Everest with another 8,000 meter peak, both without Oz, in one trip, and survive. Reinhold Messner said these epic words after becoming the first to summit without oxygen in 1978: "In my state of spiritual abstraction, I no longer belong to myself and to my eyesight. I am nothing more than a single narrow gasping lung, floating above the mists and summits." #everest #chomolungma #sagarmatha #alpinism #himalayas

Today some still remaining climbers and I started the final ascent of Mount Everest from it's North side. We hope for a late weather window starting the 26th of May and continuing for some days - low winds and relatively high temperatures are expected.

This picture I took yesterday, 23rd of May at 06:15 a.m. with a 200 mm lens from advanced basecamp at 6,300 m: it shows the final summit snow slope on the Tibetan North side and if you look carefully you can see five Chinese Climbers coming down from the summit.
I'm here to undertake my 8th and definitely last attempt to climb Everest without supplemental oxygen. Everest is the only of the 14 8000m peaks on which I used oxigene during the summit climb (early October 1992). Since then I tried six more times to reach the summit without supplemental oxygen. After a perfect period of acclimatizing this time I'm really positive and optimistic. I hope so much it works out, fingers crossed. .

After a beautiful and steep trek through oak and rhododendron forests, this mesmerising view of Ali Bugyal, an Alpine meadow opened up in front of my eyes..
It took only a few seconds to plop down, forget the tiredness, forget everything and just feel pure joy.. #nofilter #instagood #instalove #himalayas #trek #feelsogood #nature #trekkersofindia #currytraveler #topindianphoto #meadow #happiness #holidays #travel #traveldiaries

On a chill morning witnessing these cool cloud formations with strange halos of light behind them, most probably from the high atmosphere. The Himalayas never fail to leave me in awe!

Don't forget "you are what you eat"... So eat magical, sparkle toast every single day - you stunning land mermaid, you! ✨

I was brushing my teeth next to my tent and I look up to find 3 young school kids watching intently. By the time I was done 5 more children were lined up on the hill.
