Wake up now!

Thats what the first ray of sunlight tells us every morning. The biological clock of each individual is set to wake one from sleep after sufficient rest has been had. Throughout the day, when the sun is shining, it is said that one should not sleep. Oversleeping causes health problems as well as makes the person lazy.

Similarly, as long as there's ignorance of what bliss is, the world attracts one into darkness. As soon as one sees the first light of knowledge, one must give up worldly pursuits and start the spiritual journey. This is what is recommended by the Vedas, and encouraged by Shankara Bhagavatpada himself. Staying in the world beyond this moment and postponing the search for the Truth results in tamas and makes one's foundation in the world even stronger. Its like missing an opportunity when karma found itself zeroing down for the individual, but he chose to generate more karma instead. When the worldly dues are clear, you vanish; else, the opportunity vanishes!
