what other religions do bhagti amrit wale?

Recommended Posts

Christian monks and nuns wake up very early for prayers. They also do all night vigils.

Sufis wake up early, plus there is the standard first prayer within a certain time before dawn for most muslims.

Hindu bhagti orders and jnan marg orders wake very early. The fact that ISKCON (Hare Krishnas) were being made to wake at 3 for long periods of bhagti and simran was something used by the cult psychologists to criticise them! (i.e. causing physical emotional and intellectual strain for control purpoises)

Buddhists, up early,

I guess its common sense that if you want the mind to control the body (if you hold such a dualism), then you should not plagued by sleep. If you want to perform devotions, early morning is ideal.

who else is there...?
