Rightly understood, death is the perfect teacher. It throws life into the sharpest perspective, pressing us to achieve our fullest potential. In this full-length commentary on the mythic story of the Katha Upanishad, Easwaran shows us how to enter into a dialogue with death both for lessons in living and for the promise of answers to life's most profound questions: Why am I here? Is there a purpose to my life? What happens when I die?
âForemost among the transplanted Indian sages, Easwaran for many years has been known for the wisdom, serenity, and gentle humor of his teaching.â
