The practice of Garbhsanskar starts with the recitation of mantra. In Śabda Kalpadrumam mantra has been defined as the “mantaboha mananéyacya (mNtbaeh mnnIyCy),” which means repetition of a particular syllable. The origin of the mantra is unknown. Mantra reveals themselves to the person with higher consciousness or at transcendental state, you don’t create the mantra you discover them. Like when Shri Tulsidas discovered the Ramcharitmanas and wrote in and so the Veda’s. the sage witnessed the Veda they discovered it in their transcendental state and wrote them down. The Gayatri mantra is known as the most powerful mantra known to human it has been described in the Rig Veda. The Gayatri mantra was revealed to the sage Vishwamitra. It is also called Savitṛ mantra since it concerns the deity Savitṛ (Sun). According to the Indian culture, Gayatri initiated to a student before starting his/her formal education. It is said that chanting Gayatri mantra will bring the improvement in the dhī śakti that is the power of intellect).
There are many types of mantra depending upon the use of them in the day to day life. Scientific research it has been found that Veda mantra and prayers have a positive influence on many physiological and psychological functions in the body of mother and baby. As it has been already explained in the previous blog about how the fetus from in the womb from Sukuma sharir (subtle body) to isthul sharir (physical body). The mantras empower the sukshma sharir (subtle body) which results in the powerful isthul sharir (physical body). For example, both prayers and mantras, if recited 6 times a minute there was an increase in the synchronicity of cardiovascular rhythms. There was also an increase in baroflex sensitivity in the body. These discoveries suggest that the recitation of the prayer and certain Veda mantras, at specific frequencies, can induce favourable psychological and physiological effects in the person who is reciting them and in this case mother and her child. In a study, it has been found that the recitation of “Om” in twelve experienced meditators found subtle changes in the mental state indicated by a reduction in the skin resistance. Not only the Vedic mantra but the different types of meditation in Japanese Buddhism showed different brain regional activation. The chanting of Buddha name which is Nenbutsu activates the prefrontal cortex in the brain and the Buddhist sutra activates the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and right parietal cortex of the brain. Thus if a pregnant woman does chant these mantras she activating these parts of the brain of not only herself but the unborn baby as well. Thus the practice of garbh sanskar gives you the Devine child by introducing you to the right mantra to be chanted at the right time of the pregnancy. In the literature of Garbhsanskar, it has been mentioned in which time what mantra supposed to be chanted by mother along with its method and description to design your baby’s character in the womb only. this way you code the brain and behaviour of the baby along with his or her appearance by chanting mantra described in Garbhsanskar practice. Mantras have a very specific effect on the body of the person who is chanting it. It creates an effect on their mental, emotional, physical and spiritual states. Mantra affects the energy levels and etheric or spiritual body, of the mother and the baby. it includes their chakras and Nadis (energy centres and channels) and aura also respond to the vibration of mantras. Thus mantra therapy in the Garbhsanskar is a great scientifically proved practice which helps the mother to bring the divine baby to earth who are physically mentally socially and emotionally highly developed.
