The Katha Upanishad embraces the key ideas of Indian mysticism in a mythic story we can all relate to – the quest of a young hero, Nachiketa, who ventures into the land of death in search of immortality.
Nachiketa’s faith and courage
impel the King of Death to act as his spiritual teacher and show him the
deepest levels of his personality.
Easwaran explains the lofty insights of this ancient text, to help you understand your world and yourself today.
The audiobook (unabridged) is read by Paul Bazely, a professional actor and longtime student of Easwaran. Music is by Yann Stoneman (a.k.a. Jan Shé), also an Easwaran student.
The Essence of the Upanishads is a revised edition of Dialogue with Death. Easwaran describes his book as “a personal exploration of the fundamental ideas of the Upanishads, and the light they throw on how to live today.”
This book is highly recommended for spiritual seekers, young and old alike. The revisions to the original book include a new series preface and an introduction taken from transcripts of Easwaran’s talks.
