Today’s FBA Dharmabyte, “Tasting Fear,” by Kulaprabha is an an excerpt from the talk “Spiritual Death, Fear and Fearlessness.” Spiritual Death is about death of our fixed, bounded self, the self that is made up of bundled habits and preferences and views – especially views about existence and non-existence. So don’t be surprised if, when contemplating the impermanence and unreliability of that small self, you taste fear. It’s natural enough in the circumstances. After all, fine to talk loftily about ‘dying to one’s ego’, but who will be left after that’s done? Where will ‘I’ be?
