In this video Sri M explains in great detail, the shlokas dealing with the third boon of Nachikteas, dwelling on the interaction between Lord Yama and Nachiketas in the Katha Upanishad.

00:00 – Introduction and recap of previous session – Katha Upanishad

07:37 – Yama tries to dissuade Nachiketas from asking the 3rd boon
08:58 – Nachiketas’ response to Yama asking him to instruct him about death
10:16 – Yama’s response to Nachiketas
14:54 – Nachiketas refuses the dazzling alternatives offered by Yama
17:06 – Story of a king who relinquished everything to become a yogi
24:56 – Response of Nachiketas continues
28:36 – Yama decides to impart the knowledge about death to Nachiketa

45:36 – Yama continues his teaching
49:52 – Suggestions by Sri M for a scientific study comparing the brains of normal human beings and a Yogi while in the state of Samadhi
54:44 – Q&A - Q1 – How does one ignite the Nachiketas fire and once ignited, how does one protect it? Could you answer this from the point of view of the students and teachers who are involved in a family life?
59:12 - There have been stories of kings who gave up their riches and went in search of the Truth, for e.g., King Janaka and The Buddha. Is it that one has to possess everything to realise it is not useful before one chooses to go in search of the Truth?

01:08:00 – Can you please explain the concept of Chitta, Ahamkara, Buddhi and Atma in the perspective of the Social Sciences?
01:14:24 - Is there any way, any form of perception that can help us to be able to differentiate the 'Good' from the 'Pleasant', (that which Nachiketas learns from Lord Yama) which will be useful for us in our daily lives.
