Bodhi Day and Sleep Deprivation
I was reading up on Buddhist holiday's looking for some I can celebrate, I found Bodhi Day, Dec 8, Japanese holiday where people often stay up all night to replicate Gautama's famous night.
Here is an article that says sleep deprivation causes a burst of giddy euphoria, maybe caused by surplus of dopamine.http://greatist.com/happiness/all-night-just-how-bad-are-all-nighters
It makes one wonder if the historical Buddha felt enlightened because he was up all night & was giddy from sleep deprivation.
Anyone try an all nighter and how well does one bounce back afterwards? I might be enlightened, but I'll still have to go to work Monday the 9th.
