A Vaisnava who is supposed to be advanced in spiritual understanding-be he a householder or a sannyasi-must bathe three times a day: morning, noon and evening. When one is engaged in the service of the Deity, he must especially follow the principles of the Padma Purana and take regular baths. He should also, after bathing, decorate his body with the twelve tilakas.
