Gurunathar’s Divine Message- Moolam Pooja ~15-08-2005
I have thought of an answer to a question of which I have become aware. Is it essential to practice meditation at the same time and place? If so, why? This in itself is an excellent question. There is the physical body, the astral self, the causal body and the soul. If you separate these it becomes easier to understand. The physical body needs food. So we eat at specific times. As we near the mealtimes we feel pangs of hunger. After eating, they disappear. So food becomes necessary for the body. Similarly it becomes necessary to meditate at the same time and place for the astral body and soul; we must try to make this a habit. The mind becomes steady when we approach the accustomed place. For those who meditate and chant, mantras constantly this is not necessary.
I have not mentioned this because there are few who belong to this group which is typical of the Kaliyugam. Generally speaking, for those who want to advance spiritually it will benefit them to choose specific periods of time for sadhana and one specific place.
