Hello Readers, you might have heard the word “Garbh Sanskar” many times but have you ever wondered what does it mean? Some have an idea that it’s somehow related to the pregnancy but hardly few know its actual meaning. The term “Garbh Sanskar” originated from the ancient Sanskrit language. The term “Garbh” means a womb and the term “sanskar” means tradition, culture, values etc. So, we can say that Garbh Sanskar means the science of educating the womb. It means introducing the womb with rituals, cultures and traditions.
Garbh Sanskar in a way is the means of communicating with the womb. Mother shares a special bond with the baby right from the stage it’s conceived. The development of the child begins from the womb itself. These behavioural and mental development of child helps in shaping the personality of the child. According to Garbh Sanskar, the baby can sense and respond to external influence like thoughts, music, and feelings.
If the mother suffers from depression, there are chances the child may face the same. So it’s important for the mother to stay positive, motivated and relaxed during the pregnancy. If a mother stays positive and relaxed, it would be good for the health of both mother and child.
Motherhood is one of the most important phases in a woman’s life. The happiness of becoming a mother is incomparable to anything else in the world. But, this happiness comes with the bundle of pressure as now you are responsible for the healthy development of another human. You need to have a check on everything you do, think, eat, communicate, and others. You need to be cautious about each and everything around you. During pregnancy, you should be very careful about your thoughts and actions as they directly influence the child’s personality. This is quite a bunch of responsibility on your shoulder but don’t worry as you are not the first one facing this.
So, the next question that arise your mind is:
What to do or how to do to educate the child?
According to me, there is nothing specific that a mother should do. But, in simple words, mother should do everything that will pass on the qualities that she wants her child to have. This can be done through reading religious book, staying positive, meditation, yoga, listening music, reading stories of brave Heros, charity work and other qualities that she wants to have in child. Most of the mothers want their child to be intelligent and prosperous. Such mothers need to read success stories, inspirational stories and others. One should keep a watch that it stays in limit and not goes excess as it’s rightly said, that “Everything in excess is harmful.”
I will share in depth knowledge on the topic in the upcoming posts.
On a finishing note, I would say, Garbh Sanskar is all about keeping yourself in a good state emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually for the sake of your growing baby.
