“The Ancient Secret” Akshardham Temple, India, 2010 to present

This show takes the audience on a poetic and spiritual journey through.
Veda mythology, Hinduism’s oldest scriptures.
The story focuses on Nachiketa, son of Rishi Uddalak, who is about to be sacrificed to the gods by his father for Vishwajit Yagna, a religious offering symbolized by the Ceremony of Fire.
Nachiketa then meets the Lord of Death, Yamraaj, who grants him three wishes. Nachiketa’s last wish, the hardest to obtain, is the secret of death and, thus, immortality. A spiritual dialogue about life, death, gods and humanity ensues.
