Ahara (Diet), Nidra (Sleep) and Brahmacharya (Ideal regimen) are considered as Trayopasthambas , means three supportive pillars of life. Ayurved recognized Nidra (sleep) as one of the most important dimensions of health and is an outcome of relax mental state. Happiness and unhappiness, proper nourishment or emaciation, strength and debility, sexual powers and impotence, knowledge and ignorance, life and its absence (death) all dependents on sleep. The disturbance in Nidra might be related to the life style, environmental influence, mental tension, changed food habits and day to day stress .It is also enumerated as the natural urge which should not be suppressed and if suppressed would lead to various diseases. However the pattern of sleep and duration of sleep are individualized depending up on various factors. It is hence a very important concept of life , which if taken and practiced accordingly it will lead to a healthy state of body, mind and spirit. The aim of this article is to compile and revalidate the various principles related to different aspects of Nidra.
