Easily one of the best books on Self and universal Consiousness. The title sounds gloomy so many people may avoid it; but there in lies the Author's subtle test. ..if we pick up the book to read inspite of the ominous sounding title, we are seeking the same enquiry like Nichiketa who asked Yama, the lord of Death, about the secret of eternal life...the book is based on the Katha Upanishad which is dialogue between Nichiketha and Yama( so the title).

Every once in a while I have to read a book by this man. He is one of the wisest individuals I have ever encountered. The title sounds gloomy, but really this is a book about how to live. If you have ever thought about trying meditation, I would highly recommend his book "Meditation".

His gift was to make complex texts, in this case one of the Upanishads, more accessible. This book is no exception to that blessing.

Interesting. A look at death and our perception of ourselves, a bit self-helpie and Kathleen would definitely not like it!
