7 ways to get rid of sleepiness said by Buddha


Once upon a time, the great Mughalan thero lived in the forest near the village of Magadha Kallavalamutta; Tired of walking and meditating, he sat at the end of the walk and fell asleep. Seeing that the Mughalan were sleeping like that, the Lord Buddha sat down on the seat that had been placed there and said, "Moggallanya, are you going to fall asleep?"


"Yes, Lord," replied Mughaln Thera. At that time, the Blessed One said the following things to Mughalan Mahathera.


1. Moggallana! If you feel sleepy while remembering something, do not remember it. When you do that, you can get rid of sleepiness.


2. Even if that sleepiness does not go away by doing so, you will start asking questions to remember the dharma you have heard and learned. Moggallana! By doing so, you can get rid of sleepiness.


3. Moggallana! While doing so, if your sleepiness has not gone away, recite the sermons you have heard in detail. By doing so, you can get rid of your sleepiness.



4. Moggallana! If that doesn't make him sleepy, hold his ears and pull him back and forth. Massage the body vigorously with your hands. By doing so, you can get rid of your sleepiness.


5. Moggallana! If that doesn't get rid of your sleepiness, wet your eyes with cold water and look at the world around you. Look at the stars in the sky. It might not make you sleepy.


6. Moggallana! If that doesn't get rid of your sleepiness, he will remember the light signal. It will feel like noon. The light signal will be made at night as well as during the day. Light signals will be made during the day as well as during the night. Enlighten the mind. Drowsiness can be removed while living in this way.



7. Moggallana! If this does not remove your sleepiness, walk with the senses kept inside and the mind not sent out. By doing so, you can get rid of sleepiness.


Moggallanaya, if that does not get rid of sleepiness, turn to the right canal and put the other leg on one leg slightly in front and remember the time to get up and lie on the lion's head. You should get up as soon as you wake up. Thus said the Tathagata. (This is taken from a sutra in the Sattaka Nipata of the Anguttara Nikaya.)
