Sixth talk of a series of 8 talks and one session of Questions and Answers by Subhuti on the System of Practice retreat at Padmaloka for men who have asked for Ordination. In these talks, Subhuti delves into the fundamental principles behind Integration, Positive Emotion, Spiritual Receptivity, Spiritual Death, and Spiritual Rebirth, finding in each new and deeper significance. He invites his hearers to apply them deeply in their own lives.
7. Spiritual Death: What restricts the flow of Dharma niyama processes after all our karmic efforts is the emotio-cognitive complex of self-grasping. We must die to this illusory self.
