This Upanishad forms a part of the Brahmana belonging to the Katha Shakha of the Krishna Yajur Veda. It stands in a class by itself. It combines charming poetry elevating mysticism and profound philosophy.
The subject of the mystery of death is introduced through the medium of an interesting anecdote; and the teaching of the Upanishad is presented in the form of a dialogue between a mere boy Nachiketa and Yama the King of Death.
With the text of the Upanishad in Devanagari, a lucid and faithful translation of the text and commentary, relevant notes with reference to quotations and index to text, this Upanishad is a must for earnest seekers after truth and lovers of spiritual knowledge.
