Yoga For Conscious Sleep

Start Date:23-May-2022

End Date:28-May-2022

Location:Online and Oncampus


AuroYajna continues the series of workshops titled "Towards Self Perfection” started in July 2021 as their first step towards Divine Life in Divine Body.

This series is based on Sri Aurobindo's message - "Divine Life cannot manifest without the Divine Body".

Part 1 of the series is "Perfection of the Body".

To have the body as a perfect instrument, every system of the body, viz. the digestive system, the neurological system, the cardiovascular system, and each body organ needs to be perfected and in harmony amongst themselves. 

This month AuroYajna is concentrating on the sleep pattern as the body needs good amount of sleep for its effective functioning.  Hence this month it is “Yoga for Sleep – Conscious Sleep”.

According to the Mother's experience and knowledge one passes from waking through a succession of  organization states of sleep consciousness which are in fact an entry and passage into so many worlds and arrives at pure Sachchidananda state of complete rest, light and silence, - afterwards one retraces one’s way till one reaches the waking physical state.

(SABCL, vol: 24: p 1484) 

According to a recent medical theory one passes in sleep through many phases until one arrives at a state  in  which there  is absolute rest and silence -  it lasts  only for ten minutes, the rest of the time is taken  up by traveling to that and traveling back again  to the waking state.  I suppose the ten  minutes sleep can be called susupti in the Brahman or Brahmaloka, the rest is svapna  or passage  through other 
worlds (planes  or states  of conscious existence).  It is these ten minutes that restore the energies of the being, and without it sleep is not refreshing. 

(SABCL, vol: 24: p 1484) 

How to Sleep? 

The  rule should  be  to  call the  Mother  before sleeping,  to concentrate on her and try  to feel the Mother's protection around and  go with  that into  sleep.  In the  dream itself  a habit  of calling the Mother  when in difficulty or peril  should be formed; many sadhaks do it. Not to allow the invasion, any invasion of any power or  being, whether  in dream, meditation  or otherwise  - no force except the  Divine Force, means to reject it,  never to give assent, whether through attention or through
