111 Judicious

Madal: Chinmoy, is it judicious on my part not to sleep at all, but to meditate all day and night so that I can realise God in a few months’ time?

Chinmoy: Madal, be _wise_; don’t be a fool. At your present state of spiritual development your body needs at least seven hours of sleep each night. If you deny the body its legitimate demands, then long before you reach God, death will reach you and clasp its arms around you.
