Swaymbhu Natha -
The Swayambhunath complex consists of a stupa, a variety of shrines and temples, some dating back to the Licchavi period. A Tibetan monastery, museum and library are more recent additions. The stupa has Buddha's eyes and eyebrows painted on. Between them, there is something painted which looks like the nose - but is the Nepali symbol of 'unity', in the main Nepali language dialect. There are also shops, restaurants and hostels. The site has two access points: a long stairway, claimed to have 365 steps, leading directly to the main platform of the temple, which is from the top of the hill to the east; and a car road around the hill from the south leading to the southwest entrance. The first sight on reaching the top of the stairway is the Vajra. Tsultrim Allione describes the experience:
In the village of Budhanilkantha north of Kathmandu you find a thousand year old stone 5 meter tall sleeping Vishnu (Jalasayana) lying in the cosmic ocean resting on Ananta Sea the thousand headed snake. The statue lies in the middle of a small pond.
What is a sleeping Vishnu (Jalasayana) ?
In Hindu mythology every major time area (Yuga) starts and ends with Vishnu sleeping in the cosmic ocean for millions of years. The universe starts (explodes ??) with Brahma being born out of the navel of Vishnu. After that Brahma starts creating. When an era ends everything is sucked back into the breath of Brahma who disappears again into the navel of Vishnu (implosion ?) and Vishnu will sleep until the next cycle .
