Pashupatinath, Kathmandu

2 May 2010 - 2:51pm Comments Off

The ancient temple complex of Pashupatinath is regarded as one of the holiest sites in the Hindu world. One of the world’s biggest temples to Lord Shiva is located here on the banks of the Bagmati river, and the temple complex is listed in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list.

The caves of Naropa and TIlopa

Pashupatinath is also the location of the two very sacred meditation caves of mahasiddhas Naropa and Tilopa. The Naropa cave was where Naropa engaged in Vajrayogini retreat and gained visions of her – from here, the teachings were passed down to local Nepalese disciples, and from there, through the generations, it has gone all over the world. Tilopa, his Guru, also meditated in the cave just next to it.
