Day and night are nothing other than the Lord. Day is his prana and night is his substance. Those who indulge in passion in the day, waste away prana. Those that give play to passion in the night are good as celibate.(from Parana Upanisha).
The vedic sage were not negative to life. They often married and had families. Their families did not impair their spiritual lives or yogic attainment as so many people would have us believe. They also realized that the imporper use of sexual energy wastes away prana and thus life. Overindulgence or improper use according to time of day and season wastes prana. The sages were aware of the correct use of the most powerful creative energy in humans: sexual energy. This sexual energy is none other than prana, our very life essence. Suppression or overuse of our basic life energy damage the fundamental connection to live and enjoy life. Misuse will also affect our ability to unite with pure consciousness. The deeper meaning of the quote at the beginning of this chapter is that light (or day is the awakened state and dark (or night ) is the state of ignorance.
