Morning is the time when we feel rejuvenated, full of energy and will power. Practicing meditation during this time can be most fruitful. The calm and quiet nature will assist you in meditation.

As the day starts, the earth becomes energetic and full of movements. Due to dynamic nature of life style, there can be some feeling of irritation in the outer world or in the cosmos. The vibrations of the people moving around you enters into not only you but the air, the light, everything which surrounds you get penetrated by vibrations of human anxieties or activities.

Meditation during day or evening can be difficult as we are in the hustle and bustle of the world. We met many people; good or bad and their impure or undivine thoughts may have entered into you.So you are required to be inwardly very strong to protect yourself from these unaspiring and undivine forces from the outer world to have an uninterrupted focus while practicing meditation.

So if you practice meditation before the world awakens, when the cosmos and people around you are still only then you can move into deeper meditation.
