Nachiketas


Nachiketas the great student got the revelations
From the god of death through several tests and arguments
You were such a wonderful character model to the student
Whose intuition of knowledge will ever last in memory
The name is written in golden history of philosophy
The great Indian text of Katopanishad
The perfection of a son and student finds in you
Who fought against injustice of your father the king
Who tried to correct the midsdeed of the father
Compelled to visit the campus of the god of death
To save the word of his beloved father in astonishment
And at last you met the yama the god of death in person
No one can supposed to see in live but can only on death
But due to your purity of mind you won for ever
To become a hero of spirituality and man of justice
You gained not wealth or worldly things by the boons
That offered by the god to avoid from your questions
But all were no relevant to you except the true knowledge
That sought by you together with the pardon on the sins
Of your beloved father to whom you loved so much
Nachiketas the great enlightened who got revealed the truth
of Life and death and reasons of the sins and good deeds
That ever made the text of knowledge more beautiful
Your name in golden letters in Indian spirituality
That ever we remember through the texts of knowledge

How the heart feels a languid grief
