Yoga Nidra - The Blissful Relaxation (by Swami Satyananda Saraswati)
Most people sleep without resolving their tensions,
This is termed nidra.
Nidra means sleep after throwing off the burdens,
It is of a blissful, higher quality altogether.
When awareness is seperate and distinct from the vrittis (mind fluctuations),
When waking, dream and deep sleep pass like clouds,|For deep relaxation, inner peace and change.
Yet awareness of atma remains
This is the experience of total relaxation.
Relaxation does not mean sleep.
Relaxation means to be blissfully happy,
It has no end.
I call bliss absolute relaxation;
Sleep is a different matter.
Sleep gives only mind and sense relaxation.
Bliss relaxes the atma, the inner self;
That is why, in tantra,
Yoga nidra is the doorway to samadhi.
