Is the sacred Kailash mountain from alien land ?

Mysticism / Storytelling


Kailash mountain, in the Himalayan ranges is one of the most sacred and revered places in the Indian Yogic texts.  Science is still unable to explain its origin and how it came into existence. Its geological composition is still a mystery and it completely stands out distinct from neighboring structures as if it does not belong there.

Is the sacred Kailash mountain from alien land ?

The following is an unedited transcript of Sadhguru's video. For better readability, breaks and highlights have been added by the editors.

See, if you look up this whole setup – the geographical, geological setup around it, you see what is called as a conglomerate of mass, which is like concrete, which has all pebbles molded into some molten earth.

So, something happened there, which created temperatures between 800 to 1,100 degree centigrade, which melted the soil but which did not melt the rocks. If a volcano happens, rocks melt because the temperatures go up to 3,000 degree centigrade. If a meteorite lands, temperatures hit 4,000 to 6,000 degree centigrade, so everything melts. These are the two phenomenas we know which generally create that kind of temperature. Or if the tectonic plates move, which has definitely happened in the area, if they happen, then also temperatures could raise because of the friction and things could melt.

I really don’t have enough scientific information as to what is the kind of temperatures that happen. Some Russian scientist says that this kind of tectonic clash could create that kind of, 800 to 1,000 degree centigrade, and soil could melt and all the stuff. It’s possible, that looks like the most sensible scientific explanation that one can give.

So, soil melted and the rock did not melt, that’s why you see all those mountains like concrete standing up with all pebbles sticking all over the place. All the mountains around, when you are walking, are like concrete mountains. You can see pebbles and molten soil. But Kailash alone is standing like a steel, like black steel it’s standing there, and last time we sent people right up to the core to get some rocks from the mountain itself. And we have them with us. We see that energy-wise, it’s reverberating in a big way, but we do not know the geological composition of this.

Is it a meteorite or is it a certain rising that happened from the earth itself, we do not know that exactly. Geologically, they say it’s a certain rising. Why this rising happened, all this, I have not found any logical explanations to this. Why a peak would rise like that? I really do not know. If it’s because of tectonic movement, it should’ve been of one kind, like you find the Indian Himalayas. It’s of one kind, it has peaks, but it is of one kind. Here, it seems to be different. There may be a geological explanation, I do not know. But you can see, geologically, it’s of a different structure altogether.

Either you can try to read miraculous happenings into this, or if there isn’t anything like that, it’s just a natural earth formation happening that’s happened. And somehow this peak had more integrity, obviously it has, because of the kind of rock that it is. So, Shiva and other yogis chose this place, because this was a good place. That could be the most sensible explanation or there could be some other crazy happening, because there’s a crazy lake next door. So, there could be some possible craziness out there in its making, or it could be just a natural geological happening. Both are possible. We need a scientific assessment of this, which we haven’t found yet.

Story-wise, Shiva is always sitting at the peak of Kailash, with Parvathi sitting on his lap, on his left lap. This is all – you need to understand this, this is a story which is trying to narrate a certain dimension of life. This is not a physical thing that there is a man sitting there, and a woman sitting on his lap, that’s not the point. How life is made, that’s how the story is. The science of life expressed in a story form, a dialectical expression of life. So, he is sitting on this peak constantly unless he goes to his original Kailash. Sometimes he goes away, only then he is missing, otherwise he is always sitting there. So, Kailash is his original abode. This is his visiting Kailash. It has many aspects to it.

We have been promising you that we will find out the nature of this material, what this is, and I sent a few pieces with one of the Detroit meditators. They are supposed to find out and I don’t know, I think they must be keeping these stones in their house and worshipping it or something. They got the nice stones, and they must be keeping it in their shrine. I don’t know what happened, but I have not gotten any reports. Somebody else said there is another place in Arizona and they are going to send it there, and they took a few more pieces from me, and I don’t know where they went.

So, apart from this, the significance of the mountain for us is not its nature, how it happened. However it is happened, is it a meteorite, did it land slowly for some reason and all this kind of stuff. May be it’s just a natural happening, but for us the significance is, right now what it has become a station for. It’s become a station of knowledge and Grace. That’s all that matters to us.
