from Sri Auribindo and The Mother
Sleep cannot be replaced, but it can be changed;for you can become conscious in sleep. if you are thus conscious, then the night can be utilised for a higher working-provided the body gets it due rest;for the object of sleep is the body's rest and the renewal of the vital physical force

If you want to remain conscious at night, train yourself to make your sleep conscious-not to eliminate sleep altogether, but to transform it..

The sleep consciousness can be effectively dealt with only when the waking mind has made a certain amount of progress.

About consciousness coming in sleep : this is quite usual. consciousness in sleep can only be gradually established with the growth of the true consciousness in the waking state.

Namskar Daljit Singh,
thank you for your invitation !
Leela Mata spoke about "dream-yoga" on the yoga-congress from yoga vidya last year:

I enjoyed the journey to India very much, the light, the colours, the very friendly people....
OM Shanti

one who knows how to control sleep is a yogi.If one does not bring sleep under control ,he is not a yogi.

In sleep, the Jiva rests along with the mind in the prakriti or Karana Sareera.The Vikshepa Sakti, which is causing numerous mental oscillations,no longer operates in the Jiva during sleep. But the Mind is still enveloped by the layer of Avarana or the veil of ignorance in sleep.He is in peace, as he is destitute of vikshepa force.He is not dragged hither and thither. The karana Sareera is Anandamaya Kosha or the blissful sheath.So the Jiva enjoys Ananda in sleep. He is the Anandamaya Purusha.He is Prajna. This is one View.
During deep sleep the mind refrains from reflecting upon other objects.The mind enters the coronary artery or the Nadi of the heart,thence the pericardium, thence the interior of the heart and finally rests on the Mukhya Prana.The Jivaatama enters the Akasa of the heart and rests in Kutastha Brahman.He Plungs himself in Brahman, his normal Sat-chit-Ananda Svaroopa just as a weary pilgrim enjoys his dip at the holy prayaga. This is a second view.

I wish to know the impact of Lucid dreaming...Acc to my knowledge, we sleep to give a break to our conscious mind.. to refresh it and recharge our body...
Bt if we practice Lucid dreaming, we let our conscious keep working beyond being awake..we dnt giv it a break or time to refresh..
Does that harm our body..?
Does Lucid dreaming lead to hampered health?
If I'm wrong then I badly need the correct explanation..

We sleep to give our body a rest. While lucid dreaming, are we sleeping and getting enough rest? If so, nothing is wrong with it.
