Early in the morning a good householder should get up with holy thoughts, chanting the Name of Lord Hari and singing His glories through various hymns and prayers.
He should then evacuate his bowels and wash his legs, hands and face. He should look at the sun and read the daily almanac. He should then take bath in a river or a tank and perform his morning worship and prayers. He should repeat thc Gayatri 1,008 times.
