All glories to the devotees.

My question is can I conquer sleep to achieve more in life both spiritual and material, like GUDAKESH THE ARJUNA. I am 24 year old and I need to achieve my goal, so I am thinking sleeping is a waste of time ,?

    Arjun is the son of a demigod, and we are normal humans. And also, he lives in pure devotion. Let us not try matching him artificially. We can take inspiration from him, but cant match him in any sense.

    • Thank you prabhu ji

  • Hare Krishna Manish Kumar Prabhu,

    नात्यश्नतस्तु योगोऽस्ति न चैकान्तमनश्नत: |
    न चाति स्वप्नशीलस्य जाग्रतो नैव चार्जुन || 16|| ( Chapt 6. verse 16 Bhagwad Gita).

    There is no possibility of one's becoming a yogi, O Arjuna, if one eats too much, or eats too little, sleeps too much or does not sleep enough.

    Balance in everything is the key to become sucessful in material as well as spiritual life.  

    Please read the Purport given by Srila Prabhupada under this

    Hare Krishna.


    Bg. 6.16
    • Thank-you prabhu ji for your guidance
