On the 102nd Chinmaya Jayanti (Birth Anniversary of Swami Chinmayananda), we did the Pooja of Swami Chinmayananda, in the mind along with Japa and Meditation on Chinmaya - Consciousness. This was done today - 8th May 2018 in the Kutia where Swami Chinmayananda lived in Mumbai for over four decades. Very peaceful and powerfully vibrant place is the kutia.
Lord Yama praises the clarity and conviction of Nachiketa. Nachiketa has dropped the desires, sense objects and pleasurable thoughts which many revel in. He has reflected on the limitations of the sense objects had had the courage to drop them. He is a seeker of Knowledge. The path of ignorance and the path of knowledge are wide apart, opposite and lead to different results. Nachiketa walks the path of Knowledge and Lord Yama is pleased with him for that.

In every situation of life we have to choose between Shreyas and Preyas. Wise person chooses Shreyas over Preyas. Majority chooses Preyas due to acquiring n protecting tendencis. Lord Yama praises Nachiketa for his vairagya and for choosing the path of Shreyas
What is the third boon asked by Nachiketa? Is it: does the soul exist after death or what is the nature of the Self? Lord Yama discourages him and asks him to seek something else. But Nachiketa is firm in his conviction and so demands the same boon.
