Is the time for prayer or meditation very important?
Sri Swami Vishwananda:
"Time for prayer or meditation is very important. Because, you see, why you have set a certain time is not only for you to be present at that time! If you are thinking you are going to meditate now at seven o‘clock, when you say the time you set for prayer or your meditation, there is also the Deity coming!
For example, we go to the temple to pray at 6:30 - there, of course the Lord has also manifested Himself at that time. He also waits for you the same way you probably wait for Him! Because you see, He longs for you! I don‘t know whether you long for Him. This is a relationship, where you put time!
He is there, sitting and waiting for you! Then you come at 7:00 - so half an hour He was tired, waiting for you. So, that‘s why time is very important."
