The story of Abhimanyu is well known in the Mahabharata. Abhimanyu, the son of Arjuna, learned how to enter the Chakravyuha (the strategic arrangement of warriors to entrap and defeat the enemy) when he was in his mother's womb. Abhimanyu had heard and remembered the narration of the technique by Krishna to Subhadra during her pregnancy. When Pralhad's mother was pregnant with him, she used to listen to devotional songs. Therefore, even though Pralhad took birth in a Rakshasa family, he became a devotee of Lord Vishnu. It is now universally proven that the Foetus is not just a mindless mass of flesh, but a highly responsive and evolving human being, capable of receiving, understanding and responding to external stimuli. It, therefore, follows that the foetus has a right to receive positive and enriching feedback or Garbha sanskar.
Simple definition of Sanskar is –
Sanskar means to replace bad qualities by good ones. Sanskar is the process which changes the property of the thing on which it is done.
If good, hard and continuous efforts are taken by the parents specially by mother to implant the good properties in the baby in womb, a baby with good and desired qualities can be born. Garbhasanskar is a process of nurturing the baby in womb. It is also a process of training the baby as well as mother’s mind during pregnancy. Mother is also taught how to take care of baby and herself after delivery.
It is involves 3 things:
This sanskar is performed from preconception to the time of birth. The Garbhadhan sanskar is done to overcome any defect in the ovum and sperm, as well as to purify the womb. The inappropriate beeja is the cause of 90% of abortions or miscarriages.
Process of this technique should basically be started minimum 3 months or even more before conception. Although people normally contact us after conception. In that situation they should rush us as early as possible to get maximum possible benefits. Statistics shows that there are many early pregnancy failures, premature ovarian failures and miscarriages in spite of all prior medical tests performed on parents showing normal. Ayurveda attributes the reason for such failures to bearing seeds of weak potency. So, this pre-planning step pre-empts any untoward chances of such infertility induced issues.
Ayurveda considers be getting a child equivalent to planting a tree, for which we need four essential conditions-seed, field (soil), time and nourishment. Therefore, the plan starts three months prior to the day of union of the husband and wife. This pre-planning step involves purification of body, purification of sperms and ovum, herbal formulation, yoga, special diet, special mantra chanting, strengthening and preparing of their bodies, minds and souls using herbs, Panchakarma therapies and lifestyle practices so that they become capable of nurturing the seed in the near future.
It is the procedure for conception. There is a well-developed procedure in the scriptures of Ayurveda, following which properly, is of vital importance in order to invite a pious and virtuous soul to the womb of mother. In Ayurveda, before parents engage themselves in Maithuna, there are Shlokas to be chanted and parents should prepare their mindset in order to invite a sacred, pious and virtuous soul. With this state of mind, parents should engage themselves in the process of Maithuna (sexual intercourse) in a well-defined and sacred way. The parents joining the program are well-informed about this Vidhi (procedure).
It is carried out up to 3 months of conception. Pusavan Sanskar mainly is meant for good and healthy child.
Since ancient times it has been known that the child in the womb adopts impressions from its surroundings and the behavior of its mother and also started learning things. This fact has now been confirmed by modern science. Today science has proved that intrauterine baby can not only listen, touch, feel but also can respond by its own way. 60 % of brain development occurs in intrauterine period.
The health of the parents is directly responsible for the health of a child. Not only their physical health, but also their psychological and spiritual health affects the child in the womb. The surrounding environment, the food, the activities, positive or negative thinking, in fact everything the mother is exposed to during the pregnancy directly affects the child.
Garbhasanskar are special efforts taken to stimulate baby’s senses gently so that cortical development is maximum. In Garbha Sanskar technique we teach to correct all the related things in positive manner to get best results in baby. The mother is advised to take specific
