Dark night yogi
A Dark Night Yogi, also known as a Darknighter, or simply someone in the Dark Night, refers to people who meet the following criteria:
- They have crossed the Arising and Passing Away.
- They have subsequently entered the Dark Night
- They have not yet gotten stream entry, or, in the case of someone working on a subsequent path, they haven't gotten that path yet but are above the Arising and Passing Away of that stage.
Stuck half way into the spiritual path and past the point of no return, then tend to be chronic spiritual questers who have some complex love-hate relationship to practice and life in general.
Dark Night Yogis tend to have various similar issues, but these vary by the person, the stage, the intensity of practice, life circumstances, and many other factors. If you are hunting deep into the recesses of websites like this one and haven't yet gotten stream entry, you are very likely a Dark Night Yogi.
