In this Talk:

The City of the Unborn Soul: Chapter Five of the Katha Upanishad.

Behind our whole cerebral system, shines the unchanging light of consciousness, the Atman – our soul. The soul is lord of the ‘City with Eleven Gates’: the eyes, ears, nostrils, mouth, navel and lower organs.

Those who ‘reach’ the Atman through meditation grieve no more – they become free. Learn more in the talk this Sunday.

The Katha Upanishad:

THROUGH the story of a confrontation between the fearless child, Nachiketa, and the all-powerful Yama, God of Death, this favourite Upanishad raises compelling issues.

Who am I? What dies? What is left? Are we here merely to be torn away from everyone and everything? What are we to do – while alive – about the inevitability of death?
