NACHIKETA, "He was a brave lad. He sought knowledge at a very tender age. He persuaded Yama the God of Death to teach him. His father lost his temper one-
day and told Nachiketa, 'I have gifted you to the Lord of Death.' This curse turned out to be a boon. He met the Lord of Death and by his humility won him over
and learnt the secrets of spiritual life from him. He is a true sage and a beacon-light for others 'in he path of knowledge. Author - Kaipu Lakshminarasimha Sastri
