Swami Sivananda – Talk about Katha Upanishad

In this podcast Swami Sivananda is talking again about the Katha Upanishad.

The Katha Upanishad consists of two chapters (Adhyāyas), each divided into three sections (Vallis). The first Adhyaya is considered to be of older origin than the second. The Upanishad is the legendary story of a little boy, Nachiketa – the son of Sage Vajasravasa, who meets Yama (the Indian deity of death). Their conversation evolves to a discussion of the nature of man, knowledge, Atman (Soul, Self) and moksha (liberation).

In all the Yoga Vidya ashrams we offer several English seminars every year. You can find all of them by clicking here.
