Sealing Off the Lower Nature

An e-devotee asks what asana besides the lotus posture would work to close off the lower chakras. Gurudeva's response describes the lower chakras in terms of the lower nature and spiritual and non-spiritual people. Then he gives his advice.

A better word than death is transition, passing into a new form of life--life into life. It is similar to moving to a new country, having completed all of one's tasks. Death is a closing of the door on deeds well done, on all beneficial karmas.
