Kathopanishad - Episode 8

Always Choose The Good Over The Pleasant

In this episode, Yama shares with Nachiketa one of the most important concepts for a spiritual aspirant. It is the concept of the two metaphorical paths that appear before us at all times; Shreya and Preya.

Preya is the path that appears to be pleasant but is essentially not good for the seeker.

Shreya is the path that is good for the seeker, although it may appear to be unpleasant at first.

Both of these paths will bind the spiritual seeker in the world and so Sadguru explains how one should proceed when faced with these two paths ahead of them.
