The Kathas Upanisad is traditionally assigned to the Black Yajurveda, or sometimes
to the Atharvaveda. Its books are called Valli, literally, 'creeper, climbing
plant'. Some editions divide the work into two books, with our Books editions
divide the work into two books, with our Books I-III forming the chapters of
Book One and IV-VI the chapters of Book Two. In been greatly indebted to D.H.
Killingley's unpublished Notes on the Katha Upanisad.
OM. Together may it protect us two:
Together may it profit us two:
Together may we do a hero's work.
May we learn intelligently:
May we never hate one another.
OM. Peace, peace, peace.
