How Many Times a Day Do Hindus Pray?

Practicing Hindus set aside time to pray a minimum of twice per day. The ritualistic prayers are held at dawn and at dusk. Especially devout Hindus pray more often.

Orthodox Hindus recite a Sanskrit prayer known as the Rig Veda of the Gayatri. This mantra is for the sun. It is recited at the beginning of each dawn and dusk prayer time.

Hindus conduct their religious and worship rituals in the sanctuary of their own homes. A home-based prayer shrine is a room completely dedicated to religious endeavors. It typically contains a lighting lamp, idol images and foodstuffs for offerings.
