At every moment in our lives we are confronted with the opportunity to make a decision. But on what basis do we make this decision? The Katha Upanishad famously offers to two options, the way of sreyas, which can be defined as the way of Dharma and benefit for all, or the way of preyas, which fulfils our own desires.

Nachiketas is an exemplar of a person who always takes the route of sreyas, for Dharma is a way of life for him. In the Video below Shri Krishna, beautifully describes the essence of making choices based on Dharma. Although the Mahabharata TV Series is often quite different from the actual scripture, which I advise everyone to read, it at times expertly captures certain themes of the Mahabharata. This video is one of those moments.
