"To Death, I give you away!"
These words, uttered by Nachiketa's father in a fit of anger, initiate the adventurous journey of twelve-year old Nachiketa to the celestial realm of Lord Yama, the god of Death. Using this storyline of the Katha Upanishad, and a creatively imagined dialogue between the student Nachiketa and his guru Yama, the author presents the essence of the Upanishadic wisdom in a lucid, easy-to-understand manner. The dialogue helps Nachiketa (and us) discover answers to his profound questions:
What is the real aim of our life? What happens after death? What is Self-realisation? How does one get liberated?

‘Very inspiring. I find it very useful. The immediate impact of the book on me is that I have become calmer, while continuing to be active, professionally and otherwise. I intend to read this book again and again.’ – V S Raju, former Director, IIT Delhi
‘Having attended the courses of Prof. Devdas Menon on 'Self-Awareness' and 'Integral Karmayoga' at IIT Madras, I clearly hear his voice, blended with his deep understanding, flowing through this book, thankfully free of difficult Sanskrit terms. I feel grateful to be introduced to the process of awakening!’ – Christian Thaulow, Professor (retd), NTNU, Norway
‘It is not easy to translate the wisdom teachings of the Upanishads in simple language. The author attempts to do this and comes out with flying colours. The dialogue adopted is fascinating and keeps the reader hooked till the last page.’ – Subir Chakraborty, MD & CEO, Exide Industries Ltd
