All other slopes may be bare but this inscription in snow is everlasting and as one observes it, one gets the feeling that the mountain itself is Lord Shiv incarnate- the destroyer, showing himself in a rare glimpse. One can see white (snow). OM on black background. No hypotheses, no assumption and no imagination are required to visualize “OM”. The symbol and guide to mediation connecting man, God and the Universe chanted at the beginning and finale of all proceeding, extolled in the Upnishads as the best and must effective symbol of God.
