Question 38. What should be the ideal daily routine for a Hindu?

An ideal daily routine for a Hindu could perhaps be suggested as follows: Rising from bed before sunrise, obeisance to the family deity and to the Ishtadevata, ablutions and bath, personal prayers, meditation and recitation from scriptures, breakfast after offering the same to the family deity, activities pertaining to one's profession and maintenance of the family without transgressing Dharma, group prayers in the evening in the family shrine along with all the members of the family followed by supper, short prayers or obeisance to the family deity before retiring to bed. In addition to this daily routine, it is also advisable to visit the nearest Hindu temple once in a while (preferably once in a week regularly), observe a few at least of the several important Hindu festivals with due reverence and solemnity organize occasional visits with family to a few well known places of pilgrimage following the usual customs, as well as give gifts according to one's capacity to deserving people and institutions. More than everything else, one who aspires to be an ideal Hindu should scrupulously follow the path of moral rectitude both in personal and social life.
