In college I used to look for calm places and corners, where I caould make my daily prayers. Muslims do pray 5 times a day and the time of prayer depends on the position of the sun. Since the sun sets earlier in winter, the interval between the prayers is very short.

My fellow students were rather interested. They even reminded me of it and looked for suitable prayer places for me.
Sometimes I used to say: “I need my 10-minutes-Yoga” and they smiled back, wishing me a “nice date with my God”.

In fact, the prayer is something like a break. Last time I read a nice comparison. It goes like this: Life is like a soccer game. You always need a half-time recess, to calm down, take a breath, rethink your strategy. What is my aim? Where’s the goal? Who plays by my side?
