"Nidrā is a mental modification where there will be no cognition. It is the knowledge of the absence of objects. In this stage, the citta is predominated by tamas. However, this stage won’t ignore the mild presence of knowledge while someone is in sleep. This is so because after waking up from sleep the person is endowed with consciousness, as a result he/she can convey that (s)he had slept well and knew nothing. Thus, some sorts of modifications are occurred even in sleep. Source: http://in.docsity.com/en-docs/Sthiti_-_Indian_Philosophy_-_Solved_Quiz_"
