The Message Beyond Words

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


The Kathopanishad is the ancient Indian scripture that has been used much like the Tibetan Bardo, to help the dying on their way. The upanishad tells the story of a small boy, Nachiketa, who is sent by his father to Yama, the Lord of Death. With his innocent and sincere questions, the boy learns from Yama the deepest secrets of death and immortality. Osho's commentary on this mysterious and touching story brings light and clarity to an inevitability that touches us all.

Hindi : Kathopanishad (कठोपनिषद)
