I know: No one is perfect. Not me too. But..How many of us strive to align life routine with the what Avtar once followed? How far we are from the goal? Setting life routine is a mandatory pre-condition for any sort of Sadhana.

भगवान्‌ श्रीकृष्णजीने ब्राह्ममुहूर्तमें उठकर हाथ-पैर धोकर जलसे आचमन करके सब इन्द्रियोंको प्रसन्न करके मनको प्रकृतिसे परे आत्मामें लगा दिया अर्थात्‌ आत्मध्यान करने लगे। वे केवल, स्वप्रकाश-उपाधिशून्य, अविनाशी, अखण्ड, अज्ञानरहित और जगत्‌की उत्पत्ति तथा नाशका कारण जो अपनी शक्तियाँ हैं, उनके द्वारा ही जिनकी सत्ता समझमें आती है, ऐसे श्रीकृष्ण ब्रह्म नामक अपने ही सच्चिदानन्दमय स्वरूपके ध्यानमें मग्न हो गये। तदनन्तर सत्पुरुषोंमें श्रेष्ठ श्रीकृष्णजीने शुद्ध जलमें स्नान करके पवित्र वस्त्र पहने और विधिपूर्वक सन्ध्योपासनादि नित्य-क्रिया और अग्निमें हवन करके वे मौन होकर गायत्री मन्त्रका जप करने लगे। फिर सूर्य उदय होनेपर श्रीहरिने खड़े होकर सूर्यका उपस्थान किया, पश्चात्‌ अपने ही अंशरूप देवता, ऋषि और पितरोंका तर्पण करके उन आत्मवान्‌ स्वरूपस्थित परमात्मा श्रीकृष्णने बड़े-बूढे और ब्राह्मणोंकी पूजा की। इसके बाद आपने ब्राह्मणोंको वस्त्र, आसन और तिलसहित तेरह हजार चौरासी गौएँ दान दीं। आप प्रतिदिन ही इतनी गौएँ दान दिया करते थे। उन गौओंके सींग सोनेसे और खुर चाँदीसे मँढे हुए थे, गलेमें मोतीकी मालाएँ…
 
Lord Mādhava would rise during the brahma-muhūrta period and touch water. With a clear mind He would then meditate upon Himself, the single, self-luminous, unequaled and infallible Supreme Truth, known as Brahman, who by His very nature ever dispels all contamination, and who through His personal energies, which cause the creation and destruction of this universe, manifests His own pure and blissful existence.
 
That most saintly of personalities would then bathe in sanctified water, dress Himself in lower and upper garments and perform the entire sequence of prescribed rituals, beginning with worship at dawn. After offering oblations into the sacred fire, Lord Kṛṣṇa would silently chant the Gāyatrī mantra.
 
Each day the Lord worshiped the rising sun and propitiated the demigods, sages and forefathers, who are all His expansions. The self-possessed Lord would then carefully worship His elders and the brāhmaṇas. To those well-attired brāhmaṇas He would offer herds of tame and peaceful cows with gold-plated horns and pearl necklaces. These cows were also dressed in fine cloth, and the fronts of their hooves were plated with silver. Providers of abundant milk, they had each given birth only once and were accompanied by their calves. Daily the Lord gave many groups of 13,084 cows to the learned brāhmaṇas, together with linen, deerskins and sesame seeds.
 
Lord Kṛṣṇa would offer obeisances to the cows, brāhmaṇas and demigods, His elders and spiritual masters, and all living beings — all of whom are expansions of His supreme personality. Then He would touch auspicious things.
