Polyphasic Sleep Strategies

I was trying to implement the polyphasic sleep in my daily life and to be true it was a great failure. So I started searching for the factors that are causing this failure.

Factors Influencing Poly Phasic Sleep

Disclaimer: The following provide only a general guide and is very customized to my life situations and daily routine which is different for each person. So incase trying to apply in your life, apply with discretion.

1. Control of Sexual Energy: People might be wondering what sexual energy has to do with sleep. Well I have noticed is that  all the great saints that I have encountered in my life slept only 3-4 hours daily and had an amazing amount of concentration and memory retention abilities. They greatly has advised in their teachings to the control of sexual energy. They term semen as ojas or veerya ( veerya is something gives veeryam or provides strength). Its said in ancient scriptures that if a man is not having great mental abilities he will be losing his semen in 41 days.  Semen is said to be made from blood and its  said that for every drop of semen 4 drops of blood is required.  Its the most toughest tasks to control the semen and even prevent losing it during sleep.  In ancient India, it was said that  a man is supposed to have a celibacy vow for first 25 years of his life. Veerya contributed directly to memory retention and strength of mind and intellect. 

Now how do we control this?  This is the most difficult task in our life? 

One great idea that I can give to you is to have a plain vegeteranian diet which is devoid of onions if possible.  If possible please go for a diet of fruits, nuts, and milk. This will control the mind and hence will give the ability to control the semen and will you will realize a great amount of strength in ourselves. We need to grow beyond animal nature.

Reduce your interaction with situations that can increase lust. Stop watching pornography, pictures of women with lust. There are 3 ways by which they can enter our mind.

1. Touch This is the most powerful way lust can enter our mind. A touch of a beautiful female can easily deceit our minds to lust.

2. Sight: It could be from a personal encounter, images, internet, television. Now it has become almost impossible to control it fully because we are increasingly in a world of external  factors influencing us. So one way is to see the females around us as mothers or sisters.

3.Sound: The sound of girls laughing. This is one simple yet powerful way by which girls can attract our attention. Ignoring is  the best way to defeat it. One can also try concentrating on another object.

Once these 3 are mastered we can master the mind to control the sexual energy. There are other techniques available which I will be posting in coming weeks. I am implementing these techniques in my personal life and checking the progress that I make, so that I do not become a hypocrite and becomes one who practices what he preaches.

Beautiful Evening Reducing Ego within Ourselves

Today is a  Beautiful evening with rains pouring all over the city. It seems like the South West Monsoons have reached India. Monsoon has a long history of being associated with India’s culture. Its said that the peacocks dance during the rains to attract the females so that mating takes place. Rains have a great amount of influence on human lives. Water the life sustainer is an integral part of this earth which makes it habitable for the generations.

I was recently reading through the origin of life. Basically there are 2 theories. Life came from preexisting complex non life molecules or matter called as Abiogenisis. Life came from pre existing life called as Biogenesis which includes extra terrestrial origination of life on earth. These theories are great to read and it gives us an understanding of how vast this universe. Our personal ego seems to be fading when we read about the origin of life. Out of the billions of galaxies we are the in the milky way.  Out of the countless stars one is sun and out of the planets we are in earth and in earth where almost 6 billion people live we are one of them. Still we are egocentric and wants to believe that we are the best in the universe. There are lot of other things in this universe and we are nothing but a tiniest fraction of it. Thinking about itself will help use to reduce the egocentric life that we live, where we are fighting for sillier things. This is one way of increasing the horizon of our minds and vision. This is a broad minded mind’s thinking.  Let’s embrace this idea and expand the horizons of knowledge that we carry within ourselves.
