For me, sleep isn't meditation. Sleep is an escape from the world. Sleep is the only way to truly not have any problems. Sleep is the only way to stop existing without dying. Sleep is a pause in time. Prayer is the best meditation.
This is a picture of the Hindu Temple Shiv Mandir in Bangalore, India -- a statue of Lord Shiva. Shiva is The Lord of destruction in Hinduism but also possesses the typical Hindu beliefs; some of which, are close to my heart.
