Class 113: Practical techniques to achieve deep and effective sleep and the difference between necessary and unnecessary sleep: lessons from great historical figures including Bhagavan Mahavir, Bhagavan Buddha and Arjuna (chapter 14 verses 6 to 8) 
  • How the mode of goodness (sattva) is pure, causes illumination and is free from faults.  How it binds by attachment to happiness and by attachment to knowledge.
  • How people who are Dharmic and who are of the mode of sattviktā (goodness) see each and every event in life as a love letter from the Supreme Soul.
  • A study of Gurdjeff's "Fourth Way" about the importance of delaying anger by 24 hours.
  • How the mode of passion (rajas) is of the nature of attraction; springing from craving and attachment.  How it binds fast the embodied one by attachment to action.

  • A study of Bhartruhari's poems about how people fall under delusion.
  • The four visions as a result of which Siddarth Gautama performed the Māhābhinishkramana (the great renunciation) as a result of which He became Buddha (meaning "the enlightened one").

  • How you can tell whether the quality of sleep you got was good. A study of how Mahavir Swami used to sleep.
