Touching the Void is Active Dreaming in Deep Sleep

Yoga Sūtra [1.10]

My comments: Clarity of mind facilitates the absorption of ākāśa in the dream state, nidra. The temperament of the body-mind to cultivate rest and relaxation in deep sleep provides the means by which one may witness the void (ākāśa) or the transcendent (īśvara). Yoga is clarity of mind.
