Background

A description of the experience

The Atharvaveda translated by Maurice Bloomfield

Thou, who art neither alive nor dead
The immortal child of the gods art thou.
O Sleep
Varunani is thy mother
Yama thy father
Araru is thy name

We know, O Sleep, thy birth
thou art the son of the divine womenfolk
the instrument of Yama
Thou art the end,
Thus do we know thee, O Sleep
do thou O Sleep
protect us from evil dreams

As one pays off a sixteenth
an eighth
a fourth
or an entire debt
thus do we transfer every evil dream
away, to disappear
upon the night winds
