      Traté de acostarse temprano en la noche preferiblemente dormir (6) horas y

      cantar las rondas a esta hora de Brahma- Muhurta, una vez este regulado

      toda cansancio desaparecerá y entonces el deseo de servir al Guru, Krsna

      y los devotos brotará de su corazón y se sentirá feliz y despierto. Hari- Bolo!

    • thank you Prabhu ji.. for your kind reply but there are days especially during continuous exams, when we can not afford sleep for more than 3-4 Hours. formerly, I used to take tea, coffee and keep myself awake. but now during normal times I am avoiding them and taking sleep of 6-7 hours. but can we take tea for such exceptional times when it is really unavoidable, and ensure not to make it a habit. I apologise for being persistently  repetitive.

      Hare KRISHNA
