10. Avoid Night Reading :
Ques: Some people say, Swamiji, that we should not study at night. Why?
Ans: Of course, it is advisable to avoid reading at night for the following reasons :-
(a) Artificial light is not so good for the eyes as sunlight.
(b) The mind cannot concentrate on the book when one is feeling sleepy.
The early part of the night is the time for sound sleep and if you sit reading at that time, you will spoil your health and, moreover, will be unable to get up at 4 a.m. for the precious Brahmamuhurta Sadhana.
(c) The matter which you read at night time is likely to disturb your sleep in the form of dreams. In study, the mind tends to become alert and this keeps sleep away.
(d) At night, the mind is filled with the thoughts of the day’s life just ended and the mind will not be able to shoulder the additional burden of new ideas and store them up effectively.
While these are the reasons why one is advised not to study at night, people who, for unavoidable reasons, do not get any other time for reading, should certainly do some Svadhyaya at least at night time.
