Chapter 1 - Morning Schedule and Prayers

The standard temple schedule begins very early in the morning, at 4:30 am. The first worship service is called Mangal Arotik (mangal=auspicious arotik=worship). Spiritual life is very successful when one gets up early and starts off the day right. Srila Prabhupada said that all temple devotees must attend Mangal Arotik. If it is not possible to go to a temple and you would like to begin at home, this page should give you a good start.

Click the links below for different parts of the morning program. They are in chronological order. You can follow this program beginning with Sri Sri Gurvastakam and ending with breakfast prasadam.
