Our spiritual practice is from morning till night. From the moment we come into conscious in the morning it begins, even before we open our eyes already there is a duty immediately. And the first thing we do when we open our eyes is to offer obeisances, immediately. In the Hari Bhakti Vilasa it is said that one should remember the name of one’s worshipable deities, that one should offer prayers. Not that in the morning you quickly read the sms’s that might have come in over night or download mail before you brush your teeth or start mundane jokes. One of the principles in spiritual life is that we avoid mundane sound vibration in the mornings as much as possible. I personally try when I have the opportunity to just have no mundane sound at all for as long as possible- delay it, postpone it somehow or other. Don’t let it enter, no mundane sound. Only spiritual sound!
