The quest for awakening seems noble and comendable. However are modern practioners not really seeking mere comfort joriki power and ultimately some type of magical great death experience. Can you explain who it is that experiences this great death?

“Great Death” is experiencing it. That which has lost awareness of itself cannot be aware of itself, that is impossible. But “great death” changes into “great birth”. There is nothing but the experience of it. And there “great death” and “great birth” become one.
