From the Publisher

The wisdom of the Katha Upanishad is revealed in the story of a young boy, Nachiketa, who compelled the Lord of Death to reveal the secret of what happens after we die. Nachiketa wants to know the answers to life’s most enduring questions – What happens after we die? How can we find true happiness? What is truly worth having? What is the nature of reality? Step by step, testing Nachiketa’s preparedness for the highest truth, the Lord of Death ultimately imparts brahma vidya, the science and knowledge of the highest truth, to his student. Divided into three sections – extensive commentary, English translation, and Sanskrit text with transliteration – The Pursuit of Power and Freedom is a valuable reference both for scholars and for those beginning their study of the Upanishads.
