“The Brahma Consciousness, they says in our life ten hours sleeping means - that's the bliss. Eight, ten hours really strong sleep - that's the bliss. Remaining the timing is… whenever you're sleeping you won't feel horrible - you're gone. Whenever you wake up then you start feeling all the pain, depression, all the junk... Part of that time you're really in the bliss. How to take that and put in the normal life? That's called Yoga Nidra.
To me in my personal experience, generally the Avadhut characters who are really taking lot of responsibilities, to them it's really hard to get relaxed. It's very hard to go and take sleep. Sometimes, I go like amazing sleeping like eighteen hours, twenty-three hours, thirty hours at a stretch, I have no idea. Generally, I always have idea when I'm sleeping. I'm serious. I always have idea when I'm sleeping - that you need to know. That's the key. Whenever you're sleeping you need to know - that's Brahma Consciousness. Simple. Opening the door there. Whenever you're awake, you don't need to know the pain - that's another consciousness. That's not your pain, it's the life and death. You understand?”
