The time before sunrise is called the Brahma Muhurta. It is the best time for spiritual practices. The entire process culminates with welcoming the sun. How significant this time is, is explained here by the Enlightened Master Sadhguru himself:

If you are looking for dramatic spiritual progress, you must do your yogic practices before sunrise, which usually means starting the practices at the Brahma Muhurta, which is at 3:40 a.m. At that time, there is a certain process that you will become naturally conscious of if you do your practices in a certain way. If you are doing yogasanas, once your biology adjusts itself to the planet’s biology, every morning, you will wake up by yourself between 3:20 and 3:40.
Waking up and being in the presence of the rising sun gives you vitality and energy to go through the day with a vigor that those who miss those moments will not realize. Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary character Sherlock Holmes explained thus:
“How sweet the morning air is! See how that one little cloud floats like a pink feather from some gigantic flamingo. Now the red rim of the sun pushes itself over the London cloud-bank. It shines on a good many folk, but on none, I dare bet, who are on a stranger errand than you and I. How small we feel with our petty ambitions and strivings in the presence of the great elemental forces of Nature!”
I wanted to share some truly stunning pictures of a Sunrise for all to enjoy and get the motivation to wake up early in the morning to see how beautiful the nature looks.
