It is not a great mistake or harm when you pass thro sleeping
or sleeping condition at the time of doing meditation. Your body and
soul may be tired. Body and soul has very good relation. So, only
easy way sleep well. Then do meditation. Avoid heavy food or food at
the (near) time of doing meditation. Empty stomach is highly
Higly, well cleared bowl is good for meditaion.
Airy place is more required.
