- It is advisable that you download the pdf and have your area set up before your reading hour so you are ready to read on time.
- Write down our assigned page numbers next to you so you know when to finish.
We suggest you start reading 5 minutes early at the top of the first page of your assigned pages to help ensure a continuous sound current through the Akhand Path. Read aloud through the hour and an additional 5 minutes until you have finished your assigned pages.
