Meditation Quote 99: “Sleep is the best meditation.” – Dalai Lama

By on March 11, 2015

zZZ zZZ zZZ!

I love sleep! Especially as a father of two small girls – which makes every full night of sleep feel like a tremendous blessing.

Which is why I was super happy when I discovered this blog post, which covers 5 reasons why you should take a nap every day:

5 Reasons Why You Should Take a Nap Every Day

Did you for example know that a mid-day nap makes you more productive?

And that leads me to this famous quote by Dalai Lama:

“Sleep is the best meditation.”
– Dalai Lama

Such a short and simple quote, yet it leaves us wondering what it’s exact meaning is.

Should we skip meditation altogether, and sleep instead? Does the perfect sleep have a special quality that waking meditation does not have? Did Dalai Lama really say this?

While I have yet to find a definite answer to any of these questions, I choose to enjoy this quote for one simple reason:

Sleep is great!

As is meditation.

And until I get a definite answer about Dalai Lama’s quote, I will continue to embrace both for their own magical qualities!

What do you think? Is Dalai Lama right, and did he ever say this? Comment below…
