Ralph  Skuban - Your Are Immortal,  - Says Death


The famous Indian text on life, death, and the imperishability of consciousness

How can one defeat death? That is the question that has been plaguing the 12-year-old Brahman Nachiketa more than anything else when he encounters the god of death, Yama. Impressed by Nachiketa’s courage, Yama reveals to him the deepest wisdom of being: we humans are one with everything that is, are one with the Highest, and are immortal. Death, says the god of death, is an illusion.

The message of the Katha Upanishad about the immortality of the soul is considered the essence of Indian spiritual thought. Ralph Skuban’s accessible new interpretation, which takes into consideration the most recent findings about the death process, makes this classical text comprehensible and applicable for our modern times.

•A spiritual teaching conversation between a Brahman boy and the god of death, sensitively interpreted and easy to understand
