Practice always begins when there is strong urge to act .Age is not a limiting factor but our inner development which we have inherited from past birth. Read Verse 5 Ch.4.of Geeta; Bahuni te Vyatitani, Janmani Tav Arjuna. Again Ch.6 , verse 44, states 'Purva Abhyasen Ten Eva, Hriyate Avashah api saha. Sadhak is involuntarily drawn to such practices as 'Man Mana Bhava, because of his development in previous births. Persons like Adi Shankaracharya and Gnaneshwar Maharaj got attracted to Brahma Vidya during childhood and left body very early after completing their divine mission. So it is not the age but urge which decides when to start.

It can be started at any age, the earlier the better. But for most of us it may take liitle too long a while to have develop asakti in Him and understand Hid bhava. Even at the last bread of life this can start.

At the age when you can do so undoubtedly (sanshayarahit).

That you are human, automatically means you are Sadhak. You are by your very birth Sadhak only. When in all situations, circumstances, age , you can emancipate yourself, then where is time factor to consider? Prahlad started Bhakti at the age of 4/5. Hence one should turn towards God at early age, in adolescence or youth itself. There are as many ways of your emancipation as are human. Hence age or time has no relevance there. Your present situation also is no obstacle, nor any situation in the past was an obstacle. What are you supposed to do? You have to simply make a mental resolve...!!! That is it. Actually if you have not turned towards God yet, you should immediately today itself resolve: MERE TO GIRDHAR GOPAL DOOSARO NA KOI- I am GOD'S, only God is mine, no body else is mine. You have inclination towards Bhakti and hence change your ego right now, Stop considering worldly people and things and your own mind, intellect, ego , body etc to be me or mine. Instead consider them to be belonging to God. Start doing all the work for God and for benefit of children of God ( including your near and dears ...wife, husband, son , daughter...every one and every thing) and start utilising the things given to you by God for their benefit .

Just change your ego as stated above right now and rejoice.

Fundamental question is framed within you, arises within you-when you are stuck up and are not able to cover up or find a logical, rational, satisfactory explanation in respect of ‘what is happening’ or ‘what is troubling you’.
