The whole world runs away from death, because death snatches everything, but the one who accepts it and willingly faces it, receives something from death itself. Ironically, knowledge of death gives you the gift of life. Katopanishad tells the story of young Nachiketa who goes to face the lord of death and the extraordinary dialogue that ensues between them. Upanishad means sitting close to the master. Sri Sri takes us through this beautiful story integrating its profoundness with real- life situations, turning abstract philosophy into existential reality.
