Even gods and demons do not think thus. This is why humans are said to be the most unique in the universe. But if a human never thinks why he has been created by the Lord, what the goal of his life then he is no better than the animals.

Santaan Praapti Sadhana - Putrestthi Yoga and Sadhana

Santaan Prapti Sadhana Putrestthi Yoga:

Of all the gifts endowed by nature to a woman, motherhood is undoubtedly the most precious, the most wonderful and most fulfilling. Where becoming a mother adds the beauty and grace of a woman, being childless reduces her life to an endless ordeal of abuses, cold stares, taunting and chidings, not just from her family members but from the society as well. To give vent to her untapped motherly love, a woman might shower her affection on other children yet she remains deprived of that heavenly joy that comes from the breast feeding a child, listening to its delightful cries and allowing it to nuzzle up to the bosom and drift into blissful sleep.

Even the Shastras have eulogized the gift of motherhood and Sage Vashishtth went so far as to state a life left sundrenched by the elixir of motherhood is akin to a lifeless, dry tree trunk that bears no leaves, no flowers and never becomes a home to nesting birds. This the sage spoke while exhorting the childless King Dashrath to go for the Putrestthi Yoga and Sadhana. The wise king obeyed the Guru, and as a consequence was born the Princes Ram, Laxman, Bharat and Shatrughan.

Ancient texts are full of such examples where divine intervention helped childless couples beget sons and daughters who grew up to be great humans. King Janak too was childless till he accomplished a special Sadhana and obtained a daughter like Sita. Kunti was given a miraculous Mantra by the fiery sage Durvasa, most probably in one of his benevolent moods, and imbibing the divine power of the Mantra she gave birth to four valiant sons. Not just with the same Mantra she helped her husband’s younger wife, Madri, beget two sons.

Are these mere tall tales? And if Mantras do have powers can, they work their charm even today?
Well the truth is that we have lost faith in the knowledge of our ancient sages while science-seems to be in the process of rediscovering those very facts which have been there in our texts for the past thousands of years. Today the process of clothing has even dispensed with the necessity of the species. We feel not in the least surprised by these claims while we tend to laugh away the fact that Valmiki had created Kush, twin of Luv, through his Yogic Powers.

The reason for this lies in our transformed way of thinking. Now we fail to comprehend the immense powers behind Mantras and Sadhanas. But the fact is that truth remains unaltered and uninfluenced by anyone’s thinking and it’s fact that Mantras and Sadhanas are just as effective today as they were in the times of Krishna and Ram. If anything has changed it is our attitude – we no longer are as devoted, as strong willed and as believing as we were then.

It is quite true that if our faith, devotion and will are dauntless then sure enough divine help can be sought with the help of which we can banish all weaknesses from the physical body leaving it perfectly health, well balanced and vigorous. One such way of seeking divine succor is Santaan Praapti Sadhana or Sadhana for begetting a child.

If you are childless it can mean any of these –

1.       Anyone or both of the married couple might be sexually weak or even impotent.
2.       The mother might be too weak to bear a child thus resulting in repeated abortions.
3.       A child might be born but dies soon after birth.

Besides there are many who do have children but they might be disobedient or fractions thus making life hell for the parents.

Whatever the problem this amazing Sadhana brings with it true and, complete joy of being a parent. It can be tried on any Monday but a very auspicious day for this is Santaan Saptami that falls on Astami.
Early in the morning both husband and wife should sit facing the East. They should start with chanting five rounds (5*108) of Guru Mantra. Next the Santaan Praapti Yantra ought to be placed in a steel plate and it should be worshipped with offerings of vermillion, unbroken rice grains and flowers. Near the Yantra place the Soubhaagya Gutika. Offer on it eleven roses each time chanting the following Mantra –

Om Koutumb-keshwaraaya Namah

Then the couple should fix their gaze on the Gutikaa and chant 21 rounds of the following Mantra with a White Hakeek Mala.

Mantra: Om Shreem Shreem Hreem Ayeim Putraan Dehi Dehi Hreem Hreem Om Sham

After the ritual the husband should put the rosary around his neck and the Gutikaa should be threaded in a yellow string and worn as a necklace by the wife. The Yantra should remain in the worship place. After 45 days, throw all these articles in a river or pond. This is a small Sadhana but it results are unfailing. This practice has been tried by many couples and each time it proved equally efficacious.
