Shubh Muhurat for Conception

Shubh muhurat for conception or Garbhadhan muhurat

Garbhadhan samskara is the first step to Shodasha samskaras which is the process of purification of soul and human being right from birth to death. Each of these samskaras are practiced at various stages from before birth to death and after death. It starts with Garbhadhana Muhurta or Shubh Muhurat for Conception. This ensures that conception instead of being an accident should be a pre-planned affair, family planning is an age old concept, however now-a-days we think that we are so forward by family planning, the family planning done today has no significance because its planning is mainly connected with settlement and financial goals. The above Garbhadhan muhurta itself is a wonderful concept where one can have a really virtuous and blessed child with proper planning. “Suputra or Sukanya”, offcourse there should be such promise in horoscope, apart from the promise doing things in a good muhurta helps to reduce to downfalls or the negative aspects.

I felt the need to write this article as people seem to have forgotten such a wonderful way of family planning by our vedic lore, it is a shastra sammat way of planning a child who can potentially be healthy and give you happiness. It can be extremely beneficial and even help to reduce negative aspects of your horoscope’s promise. How can that happen? It can happen when one has amassed good punya with worship in this birth (you get good grades when you have studied hard and smart), you can get boons or divine blessings like you get political favors or special favors in material world when you get into good books of such powerful people, so why not get in the good books of god who is the most powerful and ever ready to bestow boons on those who meditate into him. Everything has a process, like a medical treatment is a process – you cannot say i just meditated and got cured you are bound to follow a medication procedure depending on the graveness of your disease or ailment, a spiritual remedy is a process, getting siddhis is a process, it is not like “I just pray to him with my heart” and done, these are all recently spread stuff to avoid hard work and satisfy self ego with short cut methods, shastra has laid down the ways to perform remedies for a reason. The yogis and saints were no fools to spend hours in meditation, japa, tapa, yagya, because that is the way to achieve particular siddhis, the puranas are full of such stories how even gods and demons used to pray for getting boons, kshatriyas had powerful astras which were result of siddhis and boons.  This is just to give you a brief background and a conclusion that the pre-destined can be overcome or rather improved to some extent with hard work or remedies but it takes years. Nothing happens overnight.

Coming to Shubh muhurat for conception we will see the rules laid down by shastra for Garbhadhan Muhurta.

There are various samskaras after pregnancy to avoid miscarriages like punavasana to be performed in 2nd or 3rd month, seemanta in last 2,3 months to protect pregnant women from evil forces, the purpose is to emphasize the need to keep the pregnant women happy as it has favorable impact on child. Certain other religious acts performed in this samskara emphasize the need of proper care in last 2-3 months of pregnancy. Seemantha samskara is performed in 6th or 8th month when lord of month is powerful in pregnancy. Vishnu puja is performed in 8th month to protect child in the womb.

The performing of above samskaras ensure birth of a good and healthy child, the garbhadhaan Muhurta or shubh muhurta for conception is a part of family planning only. A birth of baby with a good horoscope or auspicious planetary position ensures that parent’s will have good resources to fulfill his requirements not because it will improve luck of parents but because the child is destined to get good things then the situations automatically start improving for parents as well.

Apart from Shubh muhurat for conception one can also go for Auspicious Muhurat for Cesarean delivery if doctors suggest it. In my view a natural delivery is always the best, but now-a-days it has become a trend to advice every couple to go for C-section as it probably gives more money to doctors. You can also contact me for pregnancy related Mediclaim from Religare which covers the cost of hospitalization saving your money. Those who are planning a baby in next 2 years can opt for joy today which has a waiting period of 9 months and those who plan to have a baby within next 5 years can go for joy  tomorrow which has a waiting period of 24 months. This will be helpful to cover the prenancy related pre and post natal expenses with c-section and hospitalization expenses covered as well. It also gives a cover to baby apart from giving you income tax benefits. It is a good mediclaim to gift for newly married couple.
