The death of our fixed, bounded self, the self that is made up of bundled habits and preferences and views and#8211; especially views about existence and non-existence. So donand#8217;t be surprised if, when contemplating the impermanence and unreliability of that small self, you taste fear. Itand#8217;s natural enough in the circumstances. This is an excerpt from the full talk and#8220;Spiritual Death, Fear and Fearlessnessand#8221; focussing on the Abhaya Sutta.
