HIMALAYA: INDIAN HIMALAYA
"The land north of Gangadwar is known to the wise as Paradise Ground.
Apart from this land, the rest is called Earth ealsewhere."
Kedarkhand (Skanda Purana)
"There is no happiness for him who does not travel, Rohita!
Thus we have heard. Living in the society of men, the best man becomes a sinner...therefore, wander!...The fortune of him who is sitting, sits; it rises when he rises; it sleeps when he sleeps; it moves when he moves. Therefore, wander!"
Aitareya Brahmanan in the Rigveda, 800BC
