Yes. All of us know and get up in the morning. For many of us, it is 4, 7 or 9'° clock in the morning. All of these people think that they are getting up early in the morning. But the question is - really are they? Early means how much early and what is the right time?
It is one of the first disciplines we have to follow every day.
Nadis rule the human body:
Nadis - ida and pingala rule the human body. Nadis commence their activity with the sunrise. Hence all the human beings, all over the world, must make it a rule to get up in the morning and the right time is atleast half an hour before sunrise.
There is a rule for the Nadis to start their activity - it means they open up in the nostrils - left or right. There are two periods of days, called Shukla paksha and krishna paksha - solar & lunar period and it is these pakshas that decides on which day, which nostril must open for the nadis to play their role on every sunrise. It means, a nadi opens up in the particular only one nostril for three days and shifts to another nostril for three days and so on. This activity starts from sunrise. Since nadis are in the nostrils, if a person is sleeping at the time of sunrise, he is blocking the pathways for the nadis to play. If we sleep on the right side - it means we are closing the right nostril; if we sleep on our left side - it means we are closing left nostril. Ida and pingala must flow in the human body without any obstruction. Otherwise, they create heat & cold, good & bad, well & unwell and toss the human beings to happy & unhappy situations throughout their life. Yogis predict many things observing flow of nadis.
So it is compulsory that we get up early in the morning. Children, old & sick people are exempted. For more information, please study the book - 'Swara Yoga' written by Swami Muktibodhananda Saraswati, published by Bihar School of Yoga, Munger, Bihar. This book is an English translation of an ancient Sanskrit text 'Swara Shastra'. Swara means breath.
