Srila Prabhupada:Sleeping is waste of time.

Hari-sauri: I think it’s a long time since you’ve taken any rest at night.
Prabhupada: I take little rest during daytime. So on the whole, three to four hours. But actually I do not like to sleep.
George Harrison: No, it’s a waste of time.
Prabhupada: I think it is, when I go to sleep, I think that now I’m going to waste my time. I actually think like that.
George Harrison: What’s the word for…, the call it a little, little death. Sleep is the little death.
Prabhupada: The sastra also, Prahlada Maharaja describes the sleeping is waste of time. You find out that verse.
Conversation with George Harrison — July 26, 1976, London
