Dawn & Dusk

All things being subject to external influences are affected by the rays of the sun in accordance with their capacity. The heat produced by external causes begins to exhaust itself after some time, and the real comfort comes only when it gets completely exhausted. … Now the time when the external heat begins to subside, yielding place for the cooler effect to settle in, or the meeting point of the two, is known as sandhi-gati, and this, in the opinion of the mahatmas, is the time best suited for the practice of sandhya and upasana [daily practice and development of devotion]
