Japa in early morning!

Hare Krishna!


All glories to Guru and Gaurang!!!


i am a working person and leaves home at 8.30am in the morning for office. I complete my japa rounds in night. I know that early morning is the best time to Chant and i am trying so much to get up at 4am and do my chanting before i go to office but feel helpless.

Can anybody please give me tips how to have the habit to wake up early in the morning.


Sorry for asking a foolish question, but i have tried many times and failed, i feel guilty for not waking up early for japa.

            Srila Prabhupada gave us perfect Sadhana and if we follow that it is very easy to chant.

            As usually our Temple schedule was like the next:

            3:00 waking up-cleaning the floor, taking bath.

            4:15 Mangala Arati - Tulasi puja

            5:00  - 7:00 Japa sitting all together at the Temple room

            7:00 Guru Puja, followed by ecstatic Kirtan sometimes till 8:00

            8:00-8:40 Bhagavatam class

            8:40 breakfast

            then everyone used to go to schools, jobs, preaching...

            13:00-14:00 lunch Prasadam

            16:00 after college i used to read Srimad Bhagavatam, drink milk,

            20:00 -21:00 sleeping time.

            now mostly after college i try to write, read, use internet try to use it not too much but sometimes :-(


            washing cloth, cleaning mostly done early mornings after japa before breakfast.

             i like to be at Sri Sri Radha Gopinath Temple, where there is evening kirtans also. It starts at 16:30 and finishes after 20:00. i wish i would live closer to such like a Temple :-(

    To be frank, I too had the same problem as almost everyone of us is doing some kind of occupational duty may it be government job, software job , private job.

    Its been just couple of weeks that i am able to get up early around 5-5.30 and being able to complete my minimum rounds of 4 ( though in actuality i m able to complete around 12-14 just before leaving for office ).

    First thing to be known
    1) How many rounds are you chanting ?

    Based on the above first question, we can slowly n steadily decrease our wake up time by say 15 mins to 30 mins. Its always best to consider that I am getting up not to finish my chanting but to please my Guru Maharaj. So cultivating this kind of attitude , i m certain that you will be in short amount of time will be able to chant early in the morning.

    For example :- Currently if you are getting up at say 7 , try to get up at 6.45 or 6.30 for couple of weeks. Then next set of weeks , you get up a bit early like 6.00 etc .. This way we can ensure that we complete our chanting before leaving.
