Is it best to meditate at any specific time of day?

Meditating with regularity, at the same time ever day, makes meditation easy. It becomes our natural inclination at that moment – just as taking breakfast at the same time daily makes us naturally hungry at that time. With regularity of timing, we can sink into deep meditation from the very moment that we sit down. Regularity creates a biorhythm, establishing a biological clock within.

Traditionally, we are advised to take advantage of certain times of day, which are especially conducive to meditation. Those times are the meeting point of night and day—just before dawn and at sunset.

If we are unable to meditate at those times, we can meditate whenever possible. However, regularity is critical, no matter which time we choose for meditation.
