According to legend, one kora around this holy mountain cleans away the sins of one life; 12 circuits clean away the sins of one ‘Kalpa’ (era), and 108 Korras secure Nirvana in this very life. Making one circuit around the mountain, in the year of the horse is equal to 13 circuits in any other year. It is considered the most auspicious year for the Kailash pilgrimage, because that was when it became a power place. After making 13 koras, one is allowed to make the inner circumambulation. In this way, the more koras you make, the cleaner and purer you become. As you become purer, you are allowed closer to the core of holy Kailash, and nearer to Heaven. That’s why on the paths around holy Mt. Kailash, endless streams of pilgrims are met.
