What does Yama teach about the difference between preya and shreya in the Kathopanishad?

In the Kath0panishad, Yama explains the difference between preya (dear, pleasant) and shreya (good, beneficial). Choosing shreya leads to well-being and the ultimate goal. In contrast, choosing preya results in transient pleasures and losing sight of the goal. Wise individuals choose shreya over preya. This choice is associated with the pursuit of knowledge and wisdom, which is difficult and eternal. On the other hand, pursuing preya leads to ignorance and delusion, which is easy but transient. Yama emphasizes seeking lasting good over immediate gratification.
