Nothing is more fascinating and yet shocking to human mind than death. The Katha Upanishad is a dialogue between a young boy Nachiketa - a seeker of Truth, and Yama - the Lord of Death. Who or where is God? How relevant is the sense world? And finally, what is beyond death? All these are discussed and explained very simply and directly in this book. Based on lectures on the Katha Upanishad given in New Delhi, India in 2005.
