Meditation Time

Harichandra

Early morning and evening, i.e. when night passes into day and day into night; these are the best hours for meditation. One should meditate regularly at fixed hours, for who knows when the auspicious moment will come when one will have a vision of the Divine. Such a moment comes suddenly without any premonition. So one should keep to the routine, however much one’s mind might be disturbed.

PRACTICE IN SOLITUDE

Practice is the means of concentrating the mind. Pranayama, breath-control, is also one of the means. But it is not safe for a house-holder- if one is not continent, one falls ill; and one must have nutritious food, a little fine place and pure air.

In order to have meditation and concentration, you must practice in solitude; the more you will try, the more you will achieve whatever you find conditions favorable. For example, if there is ascenery, sit down to meditate, Seek Him, and renounce Kamini-Kanchana, lust and gold. But first renounce internally. These are evanescent. Take your mind off them.
