The purpose of Zen meditation is to remove illusions, imaginary lines. Time is one of the most typical illusions. There is not such a thing as time, not to mention no good time or bad time. To think that there is a good time and a bad time is to add more imaginary lines of good time and bad time. Clinging to good times and avoiding bad times such as dawn and dusk is to be deluded by illusions, which is to run counter to Zen meditation.

Every moment is equal and neutral. However, everybody has his own physical rhythm and different circumstances suitable for practice depending on his job and situation. So, the best time for practice is the time suitable for your personal circumstances.
