- Topics:
o Naciketa’s Coversation w/ God of Death
N got thrown in the fire by the fire who was sacrificed by father
Yama (hades/ruler of hell) is the a god (not evil) that retains soul and then
transfers them to the other part. Purifies the soul of evil before they can move
Gives three wishes (boon) short of immortality to N bc he waited for Yama to
come back when he was dealing w/ other souls
o 1) bring me back to earth
o 2) explain purpose of sacrificial fire ritual
o 3) explain what happens after people die; give me K if person dies +
soul carries on or is there actual death for the soul
N wants to learn from death. Who better to tell me about it than death. Death
wants to grant him anything other than that so even immortality! Whatever
desires that are hard to get in the mortal world. I’ll give you the world, but just
don’t ask me that question because even goddesses and gods don’t know what
N has souls within the three days that he was waiting for Yama. He saw “life”
pass by; souls moving alone; souls being purified
N doesn’t want to live bc he’s just gna end up here again
Death is tempting him
