Aim: To have a healthy mother & healthy baby in terms of physical, mental, intellectual, and spiritual. It is a science by itself and also a beautiful, easy, and inexpensive way to improve the intelligence and the emotional and spiritual quotient of an unborn child by various means. It also includes keeping an expectant mother happy and making her nine monthly journeys joyful.

It is not a new concept in India; Indian people knew that the behavior of parents and the environment affects the growing child in the womb. That’s why our old grandmothers insisted that the expecting mother should be kept happy and at the same time she should live with discipline, think positive thoughts, read good books, listen to good music, etc.

Our mythology tells the story of Abhimanyu. He learned how to enter into chakraviyu in the womb while Lord Krishna narrated the art of entering into chakravyu to expect Subhadra. Another example is Shivaji, the great warrior, his mother used to read and think about the life stories of deshbhaktas, Rramayan, Geeta, and  Mahabharat when she was pregnant. Recently also, if u look into the life of famous tabla player Zakkir Hussain, his father Rakkatulla use to play tabla sitting near his pregnant wife.
