An aspirant may come to a stage where the next step is not immediately clear. For this, Kakaji emphasized sincere night prayer. By introspecting on the whole day's activities at night, one can quickly review and catch all the places where he forgot God and acted from crude nature. At that time, it is important not to justify ones mistakes or blame others. After identifying the mistake, one prays, "God, give me the strength that I do not repeat the mistake tomorrow." Then, immediately upon waking up, one again remembers God. The secret of night prayer is that the entire time that one sleeps, one is effectively praying.
