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.

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.

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
