The Katha Upanishad with Shankara’s Commentary
The Katha Upanishad is a collection of philosophical poems representing a conversation between the sage Naciketas and Yama (god of death). They discuss the nature of Atman, Brahman and Moksha (liberation). The book is made up of six sections (Valli).
This commentary by Shankara focuses on ‘Advaita Vedanta’, or non-dualism: one of the classical orthodox philosophies of Hinduism.
The title in IAST is: Kaṭha Upaniṣad, Śaṅkara Bhāṣya.
In Devanagari: कठ उपनिषद्, शङ्कर भाष्य or kaṭhopaniṣad (कठोपनिषद्) or Kāṭhaka-upaniṣad (काठक-उपनिषद्)
