Invocation

Om. May Brahman protect us both! May Brahman bestow upon
us both the fruit of Knowledge! May we both obtain the energy
to acquire Knowledge! May what we both study reveal the
Truth! May we cherish no ill feeling toward each other!
Om. Peace! Peace! Peace!

Katha Upanishad
Part One
Chapter I
1Vajasravasa, desiring rewards, performed the Visvajit sacrifice,
in which he gave away all his property. He had a son named
Nachiketa.
2\u20143

When the gifts were being distributed, faith entered into the
heart of Nachiketa, who was still a boy. He said to himself:
Joyless, surely, are the worlds to which he goes who gives
away cows no longer able to drink, to eat, to give milk, or to
calve.

4He said to his father: Father! To whom will you give me? He
said this a second and a third time. Then his father replied:
Unto death I will give you.
5Among many I am the first; or among many I am the

middlemost. But certainly I am never the last. What purpose of the King of Death will my father serve today by thus giving me away to him?

6Nachiketa said: Look back and see how it was with those who

came before us and observe how it is with those who are now with us. A mortal ripens like corn and like corn he springs up again.
