[B]Philosophical and Medical Notes related to Yoga Nidra:[/B]
There is repeated emphasis on detaching one from the body and becoming an observer. As Ramdev explains, the moment you become an observer you become detached. You become buddha, you become liberated. He goes on the explain that the body is the chariot, intellect is the charioteer and the mind is the reins with which the charioteer controls the body.
This clearly makes the Mind body connection .
We are the lord of our own body and the mind. One needs to enter in yourself; this knowledge, this commitment, this feeling that i am conscious will remove y(our) tensions, (y)our sorrows. All the tensions, all the fear and all the illusions, all worries, all distress, all sorrows, will quieten/shanti. Many things, such as stress, hormonal changes, medical or emotional problems, and certain medications, can cause insomnia. While there is no solution to this complex and highly individualized problem, the practice of yoga can be helpful to you. Just resolving to do this practice can be beneficial as there is power in resolution. It leads to action.
