Swami Sivananda

Not to be afraid of death is the Nachiketas element. To have perfect Vairagya or dispassion is the Nachiketas element. To have discrimination between the real and the unreal is the Nachiketas element. To have strong yearning for liberation is the Nachiketas element. To enquire and seek the immortal Soul is the Nachiketas element. To be a Dheera or a heroic aspirant is the Nacbiketas element. to sit at the feet of a Sadguru, to hear, reflect and meditate, and realise the innermost Self, is the Nachiketas element. Nachiketas was the bold boy of Kathopanishad who got spiritual instruction From Yama the Lord of Death, And obtained Self-realisation and Immortality. Become a Nachiketas and be free. In each one is hidden, sleeping Nachiketas, the glorious Sadhak. Run to death; kill the petty "I", and die to live : the Nachiketas Joy.

Keep the Lord in your heart. Remember Him always. He is your only true support in the world. Repeat His Name constantly. Equip yourself with the four means-Viveka, Vairagya, Shat-Sampat and Mumukshattva. Then control the mind and the senses and do Manana and Nididhyasana. This is the essence of all the Sadhanas.

- Swami Sivananda
