Katha Upanisad

A Video Course on Vedanta Texts- Upanisad: Katha Upanisad by Swami Viditatmananda Saraswati.

The dialogue between the young boy, Naciketas, and Lord Yama which comprises the Katha Upanishad has all the elements a seeker requires to understand the Self (Atman).  The characteristics of the qualified student are exemplified and tested in Naciketas.  And his mature question about the nature of the self which is “doubted even by the gods.”  (KU 1.1.22) and is “other than dharma and Adharma and cause and effect” (KU 1.2.14) is thoroughly answered by Lord Yama.
