It is necessary to change the atmosphere in which we pray if prayer has to be efficient. From this angle it is better to use the words ―Prayer before going to bed‖ rather than ―bed time prayer.‖ That the whole world is nowadays bombarded with ideas of violence, hatred, jealousy, envy and unbridled appeal to gratification of passions is however a matter we have to contend with even if we were to go to bed in the peak of Himalayas. There is no solution to that unless humanity becomes sane. And for that the solution is assiduous practice of the Prayer on point A at 9 P.M. or any such suitable time even as advised by our great Master Sri Ramchandraji Maharaj of Shahjahanpur.
We are to pray before going to bed but then how long is a question many have. If we were to conclude our prayer soon, we seem to have the problem of going to sleep. I practice to be in the thought of the Master in the prayer mood till I get sleep. I find then the period spent is a type of meditation also and I tend to feel the nearness to Master. Surely this must be the case of all the aspirants who are here.
