After the morning prayer, the twilight should be spent in muttering the Divine Names, sacred recitations, repentence and apology. One should not speak at this time, except to obey an express injunction or prohibition of the Scriptures, to bless or benefit the faithful, and to instruct a student in need of knowledge. The company of a Saint, a knower of God, or one’s own Teacher, if available, is preferable to mutterings and recitations.

Before the sunset prayer, some time should be spent in attentively examining the desire-nature i.e., reviewing the gains made and the losses incurred during the day.

One should go to sleep pure, and with holy reci­tations, and should not sleep unless overpowered. One should get up in the latter part of the night before twilight, and immediately take to the sacred duties.—Letter 28.
