- Uddālaka Rishi said to Nachiketa that I will donate you to Yamraj, Nachiketa reached Yamlok to correct his father’s point.
story – Uddālaka is a famous story of the sages and Nachiketa. Uddālaka was performing a yajna and also donating cows to Brahmins. His son Nachiketa was very intelligent. Nachiketa saw that the father is donating cows, but some cows are ill, weak. He started thinking that because of this, the problems of people taking donations will increase further.
Nachiketa immediately reached his father and told him not to donate weak cows. Uddālaka did not pay attention to the child. Nachiketa then said, ‘This kind of donation is not right.’ The sage was still busy with his work.
Nachiketa once again said, ‘Father, if you have to give this kind of donation, will you give it to me also? Uddālaka did not take the son’s words seriously and said angrily, “Yes, I will give you as well.”
The son asked, “Whom will I donate?”
Uddalak said, “To Yamraj.”
Nachiketa thought that if my father donated me to Yamraj, then I should fulfill my father’s words. He reached Yamlok. At that time, Yamraj was not there. Nachiketa waited for Yamraj for three days.
When Yamraj came, he saw Nachiketa and said, ‘You have waited for me for three days. I am pleased with you Ask for a groom.
Nachiketa asked Yamraj the secrets of birth and death and asked for a boon, ‘Let my father get angry because of the anger, the disturbance that has happened.’
Learning– Wise children give proper advice to parents and also care for them. Also listen carefully to the children. Do not think that they are small in age. If the advice of children is correct, then they must be implemented.
