Banyen's Description: 

Created specifically for the millions of people for whom deep and restful sleep is difficult or elusive, this program based on ancient principles of mind-body medicine (Ayurveda) teaches how to get in touch with nature’s rhythms. Step by step, you’ll learn techniques (meditations, daily rhythms, diet, massage, exercises) to eliminate the underlying causes of insomnia, which are actually much more complex than we might suspect—and create a balanced mind and body. Sleep deeply at night—every night—without medication, giving your body the rest it needs to restore your natural vitality. Restful Sleep contains a wealth of insights on the processes of sleeping and dreaming. In a chapter entitled “Fulfillment, the Basis for Restful Sleep,” he says:

There is a concept in Ayurveda known as dharma. To be in dharma means to know what you’re here for. It means you’ve discovered the purpose of your life. You see, there are no extra pieces in the universe. Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill, and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle. Indeed, the universe would be incomplete if it weren’t for the fact that you happen to be here. And for any single thing to happen in this whole universe, you and everyone else must take part in it. . . .

Insomnia is a symptom of an underlying imbalance, and if you want to discover the root cause of that imbalance, I would suggest it is lack of dharma, lack of fulfillment, lack of purpose in life.

To put it a better way, the purpose is there, but you haven’t found it yet.

Publisher’s Description:
