Question: If you want to sleep as little as possible, what can you do to keep your energy level high?

Sri Chinmoy: It is not advisable for you to sleep as little as possible right now. You have to see your body’s necessity. If the body demands seven hours, do not try to torture the body by sleeping for four hours. But if you need seven hours of sleep, and you sleep eight or ten hours, it will be a real injustice to your body. If you oversleep, it is a deplorable mistake. Again, if you do not sleep the amount you require, you will ruin your health. If you sleep the proper amount, only then will you be able to maintain your life-energy at a dynamic level.
