Kathopanishad - Episode 41

Spirituality Is Fearlessness

Fears arise from our desires and attachments. Either the fear of not getting what we want or the fear of losing it once we have it. To combat these attachments and the resulting fear, we should acknowledge and remember that everything belongs to brahman alone. It is not ours to acquire or cling to in the first place.

Furthermore, one can cure one’s attachments by acknowledging this simple truth; that everything in this world is temporary and therefore cannot give rise to anything permanent.

Like Nachiketa, one who observes this truth is then no longer tempted and distracted by the things of the world and instead turns their attention inwards, towards the only real permanence there is; the self.
