How to Raise Ideal and Devoted Children? – 3

(Continued…) Therefore all mothers share with your pregnant daughters and daughter-in-laws such divine legends of the Lord. Teach them and show them beautiful divine pictures of the Lord and according to your affordability feed them pure cow’s milk and “ghee” (butter), rice, wheat, “moong” lentil, sugar etc. pure, “sattvik” foods. Red chillies, mustard etc should be avoided. Do not feed them sweets made out of “baajari” millets and spicy, pungent foods, bitter tasting foods; because the foods that are eaten by pregnant women, these foods have a great influence and will most certainly falls on the unborn child. With these kinds of foods, the unborn child in the womb experiences a burning sensation, and in his nature there is irritability and many other kinds of flaws. While pregnant, mothers feel a strong urge and think about eating various kinds of foods, whereby they are even capable of eating coal, “multaani mitti” a particular kind of mud, white chalk, etc. Therefore older mothers, must take extra precaution and complete care of pregnant daughters and daughter-in-laws, and according to their liking and your affordability, feed them the best of best pure foods.

By doing so, in their mind, intellect, memory there is a joyous feeling. This happy and joyful feeling will leave good impressions and sanctification on the unborn child. An extra-ordinary point is that the sisters should want that they remember the Lord at all times. “The Lord is residing in my heart, there is immense grace on this unborn child and God’s hands are on my forehead and He is protecting us” – Such sentiments must always be in their inner being, and she must continue to see the grace of God on them both. With such sentiments one will surely become pure and simultaneously the unborn child too by God’s grace receives the necessary protection.

In Srimad Bhaagwat, Kind Parikshit said –

Dronyastraviplushtmidam madang, Santaanbeejam kurupaandavaanaam |

Jugop kukshin gat aatchakro; Maatushrav mein yah sharanam gataayaah || (10/1/6)

“This body of mine was destroyed by the weapon of Ashvatthaama; this was the only progeny in the Kaurava-Prandava lineage; My mother Uttaraa went to take refuge in the Lord and the Lord entered the womb of the mother, and with His “chakra” in hand, protected me.”

This occasion went like this – In the war of the Mahabharat, by causing the victory of the Pandavas, the all knowing Lord Krishna was preparing to go to Dwaarka. At that time, the pregnant Uttara as if being devoured by fire and surrounded on all sides with the blazing heat, came crying and said to Lord Krishna –

Kaamam dahatu maam naath ma mein garbho nipaatyataam || (Srimad Bhagwat 1/8/10)

“O’ Lord! Let this fire of the weapon burn me to ashes, but please let it not hurt my unborn child by destroying him.”

Then God by His divine powers entered the womb of Uttaraa and protected the unborn child. Let the pregnant mothers remember this point and at all times have the sentiments that through this womb may a loving devotee of the Lord be born. Not only that but undoubtedly God Himself comes into my womb.
