Grandeur of the Himalayas

In the great Indian epic Mahabharata, the protagonist, Yudhishthira is once asked by his wife Draupadi: "Why do you love Truth so much? Truth has given you nothing but misery."
Yudhishthira replies, " I love these Himalaya mountains. They have not given me any material gain. But they are so beautiful and grand, that anyone would love them...Truth is also like that. Beautiful and grand. That is why I love Truth."

Anyone who visits the Himalayas once, longs to visit it again and again.


  1. Adjectives will fail to describe this beauty. And, given a choice, I will rate Himalayas over truth.

  2. Like the old cliche 'the truth will set you free'. Perhaps they were referring to the Himalayas, they will set any soul free. I am enjoying your visit out there Lotusleaf.
