Question: You say that if we are sick or exhausted we should sleep. What if we wake up and our body says that we are really exhausted and need sleep?

Sri Chinmoy: When that happens it is not the body, but the physical mind that is speaking. Even if you sleep for twenty hours, the physical mind will say, "I am tired, I am tired." Finally, when you do get up, that same physical mind will tell you, "Now it is too late to meditate. The time is past."

Sri Chinmoy, Sleep: death's little sister.First published by Agni Press in 1974.

This is the 198th book that Sri Chinmoy has written since he came to the West, in 1964.
