Q: After stopping tea my mind seems to become dull. I cannot take interest in anything. It has become difficult to attend my classes.
All that is- evidently due to the vital-physical becoming tamasic because you refuse it its small desires. You should throw it away altogether and call down into the vital-physical the Mother’s Force. So long as something in the being clings to the desire of indulgence, no Force can get rid of these things by violence. Even if the Force threw it out, that in the being would call it back.
