8. Advice On Study :
Ques: Swamiji, how many hours daily would you advise me to devote to the study of spiritual literature?
Ans: Obviously, students cannot devote much time for reading outside of their own school texts.
While a retired man can possibly spare six or seven hours for daily Svadhyaya, you might try to set aside at least a couple of hours every day for this purpose.
Of course, you will be able to read more in your holidays.
On the other hand, during examination time, you need not worry about Svadhyaya, but may confine yourself to your daily prayers.
In these matters, you must always use your individual discretion, because you know your circumstances best.
But, however, you must adhere to this main principle, namely, that some fixed time must be set apart for the daily reading of elevating, inspiring and ennobling spiritual literature.
The length of time may, of course, be adjusted to suit different periods of the year.
