Source:"The Upanishads - A New Translation" by Swami Nikhilananda in four volumes
Om. May Brahman protect us both! May Brahman bestow uponus both the fruit of Knowledge! May we both obtain the energyto acquire Knowledge! May what we both study reveal theTruth! May we cherish no ill feeling toward each other!Om. Peace! Peace! Peace! 
Katha Upanishad 
Part One 
Chapter I 1
Vajasravasa, desiring rewards, performed the Visvajit sacrifice,in which he gave away all his property. He had a son namedNachiketa. 
 When the gifts were being distributed, faith entered into theheart of Nachiketa, who was still a boy. He said to himself:Joyless, surely, are the worlds to which he goes who givesaway cows no longer able to drink, to eat, to give milk, or tocalve. 
 He said to his father: Father! To whom will you give me? Hesaid this a second and a third time. Then his father replied:Unto death I will give you. 
 Among many I am the first; or among many I am themiddlemost. But certainly I am never the last. What purpose of the King of Death will my father serve today by thus giving meaway to him? 
 Nachiketa said: Look back and see how it was with those whocame before us and observe how it is with those who are nowwith us. A mortal ripens like corn and like corn he springs upagain.
