Nidra which means sleep is a common experience for everybody. Sleep is an absolutely essential requirement in life. Just as an athlete retreats several steps to get a good start before running or taking a high jump so sleep is a retreat in the opposite direction that gives the energy for living a happy and successful life.
The body and senses provide the medium of interaction for living. The ego or sense of individuality uses the body her communication with the world. During sleep the individual has no contact with the body and therefore the body can relax after sleep the body is refreshed energetic and ready to carry out its duties.
In the sleeping state the individual has no control over the body and is separate as a witness. The individual can dream of different situations where there is no participation by the body. When both the individual and the body are completely relaxed without entering any other state like the dream state then one has proper and quite sleep. After such deep sleep relaxation the body and the individual are both fresh and energetic and one develops a high resistance and immunity against disease.
The modern lifestyle which is full of tensions deprives more and more people of their basic right to deep sleep. Unnatural and wrong desires are also responsible for disturbed sleep. Many different sicknesses are developing because of this condition and even medicines fail to offer a cure.
Generally one doesn’t require any assistance in order to sleep and it can be enjoyed independently. However because of wrong actions unnatural relationships an aggressive attitude wrong food etc. one loses the right to sound sleep.
Yoga Nidra is technique to attract and restore grace so that one can enjoy deep sleep which is a beautiful gift from nature.
