Divine Gift for Betterment of Humanity
The divine ancient sciences of India
viz., Jyotisha, Vastu, Yoga, Vedanta
and Ayurveda were given to us on a
platter; whereas people across the world
are striving hard to get even a fraction &
feeling blessed. We have to be intelligent
in understanding these great Shastras and
in the process, seek their help in betterment
of our lives. We wish all mothers-to-be
a happy and healthy, complete Vastubased
pregnancy/ safe delivery, by
adhering to the below guidelines.
Integration of Energies
Over the last few years, we have been
seeing the rising importance of Vastu not
only in India but also all over the world.
Vastu shastra is based on the cosmic
energies being emitted from various
bodies all over the universe. These energies
are an admixture of gravitational, solar,
magnetic, thermal, electrical, mechanical
and many unknown (to modern science)
forms of energies.
When Brahmasthal, the centre of a
house(controlling gravitational force)
is disturbed, invariably
there is lack of growth &
the family members/
employees. When placing
of your head to the North
or West(last priority) is
not advised, perhaps,
our saints took magnetic
and thermal energies into
consideration. When the
North-east was referred
to as Ishan or Devamoola
and recommended for
meditation etc. and
the South-east was
referred to as agneya
and recommended for
placement of a hearth, our
saints & rishis were speaking,
perhaps, of solar energy.
A grounding rod normally
helps dissipate excess
electricity from a lightning strike, into the
earth. If we observe carefully, temples
of ancient times had lightning rods
installed. Our saints were very much
aware of electrical energies and these
rods, perhaps, were used for grounding
This write-up is especially written for
young mothers-to-be. Apart from taking
the modern medical guidelines into
consideration, Certainly some simple
Vastu tips given here will help the ladies to
bear a healthy child.
It is in addition supportive to the normal
medical advice/ practice of getting a
check-up once in two weeks till the thirtysixth
week and then weekly, until delivery.
At each visit, blood pressure is recorded,
urine is tested for sugar and protein,
mother’s weight-gain is seen to check
for swelling of the legs and face and to
detect any development of hyper-tension
and diabetes during pregnancy.
Couples planning their progeny can use
a North-west (Vayavya) room (primary
element Air) until the onset of pregnancy.
The mother-to-be can then move into a
North-east (Ishanya) room as is explained
later. All classical works have clearly spelt
out the place of the primary element Agni
or Fire as the South-east of a Mandala.
It is precisely for this reason that we do
not advise a pregnant lady to live in this
sector (or room). It is a known medical
fact that heat has a great implication in
pregnancy. Anything that raises the lady’s
core body temperature can amplify
congenital anomalies, mostly during the
first three months, when all main organs of
the foetus are forming.
Electrical and electronic Gadgets
Normally, a lady’s basal body warmth is
higher during pregnancy. It is, therefore,
advisable for the lady to keep herself away
from and being too near a television, a
computer or any electric gadget (that
emanates electrical or electro-magnetic
energies). This way, she can avoid
increasing her internal temperature to
a dangerous level without even being aware of it. Normally, a woman dissipates
body heat through her skin and breathing.
The foetus that is growing has normally a
temperature which is a little more than
the mother’s and dissipates its heat across
the placenta and through the mother’s
blood stream. Foetal damage can occur
if the mother or the foetus does not cool
down quickly after the temperature of the
Certain Finnish studies have revealed
manifold increase of miscarriages in
women using computers. Computers
produce unusually high levels of extremely
low frequency magnetic fields. The Southeast
sector of the building and the Southeast
sector of a room are places to be
avoided by a pregnant lady at least for
the first three months.
Medical science tells us that by the end
of the fourth month, almost all the major
organs of the foetus are formed. The
brain stem and the limbs are formed and
begin to mature. Most pre-natal damage
capable of causing birth defects occurs
during this time. This period, commonly
known as embryo-genesis, can cause
organ-specific damage. However, brain
development continues throughout the
period of pregnancy. Therefore, there
is really no safe period for strong intense
bursts or continuous doses of electromagnetic
frequencies during the months
Research on the effects of thermal and
non-thermal electro-magnetic fields has
shown reported 50 percent miscarriages in
pregnant women who slept in electrically
heated waterbeds. Thermal heat is,
therefore, another factor that affects
pregnancy. When the Eastern part of the
earth is heated, its Western part remains
cold. Consequently, thermal electricity
generated by the Sun travels over the
surface of the earth from East to West.
Therefore, pregnant ladies can avoid
sleeping with their heads to the East. They
can sleep with their heads to the South as
natural polarity of the body is maintained
and health of both the mother and the
foetus is taken care of.
Beneficial Ultra Violet Rays
The pregnant lady can sleep in a Northeast
room. Vastu refers to the Northeast
as Ishanya or Devamoola, thereby
indicating it is a very important spiritually
elevated zone. It is a known fact that the
Sun’s rays can be split into 7 plus 2 colours.
We speak of the Paramasayika mandala
for human habitation (manushyalaya).
This plan divides each side into 9 parts.
Beginning from ultra-violet ray in the first
part on the Eastern side corresponding to
North-east, the Sun’s beneficial rays further
split into violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow,
orange, red and infra-red in the last part
corresponding to the South-east. Ultraviolet
and the cold colours of the spectrum
are said to have a soothing effect on the
body and hence, the North-east room is
recommended for a mother-to-be.
Since blue has a cooling and astringent
effect, a soft zero candle bulb, which burns
in the room during night, is suggested.
The other two colours of the cooling trio
viz., violet and indigo can be alternated
during the entire period of pregnancy. In
case of pains, indigo can be an effective
anaesthetic and can induce insensibility.
Violet is said to be good for bone growth,
maintaining the potassium and sodium
balance of the body. Expectant mothers
who regularly meditate will be happy to
know what Leonardo Da Vinci has to say:
“The power of meditation can be ten
times greater under violet light.” To put it
simply, violet is an inspiring and spiritual
colour. Ultra violet ray, which is the head of
the cold colours and is said to normalize all
metabolism and glandular activities can
also be used with advantage.
TIME-TESTED PRACTICAL TIPS FOR
SAFE AND NORMAL DELIVERY
• Having pleasant pictures like healthy
smiling children, Gods, Flowers,
greenery etc. in the room/ house is
very good for the mothers. Paintings of
dragons, wars and other violent images
must be strictly avoided. They evoke
tensions and feelings of unhappiness.
• Get a Red Thread tied on the waist of
the pregnant woman by her mother/
mother-in law/some other elderly
lady which after delivery should be
wrapped around the newly born child.
This ensures safety of the child/ Mother
throughout the pregnancy as also
during/after the delivery.
• Well before the time of labour pain,
arrange for two new brass utensils, put
sugar in one of them & keep it near
the head on floor. The other should be
kept empty along side, with lid closed.
When the need of going to hospital
arises, fill raw milk in the empty utensil.
The pregnant woman should touch
both the utensils before going to the
hospital and pray for a safe delivery.
• After the delivery donate both the
things along with utensils in a religious
place. If the delivery has taken place
at night then donate in the morning.
• Regularly seeking the blessings from
the elders (Ladies & Gents) of the
family is very very helpful in complete/
• If you are feeling weak, tired or are ill,
try spending time in the East of your
house. The East is believed to be ruled
by Indra, the God of war and weather.
Hence, Indra has power over the rising
Sun, which is believed to have control
over the bones, eyes, heart, spinal
cord and blood circulation.
• Playing around with different colours
can make you feel more comfortable
during your pregnancy. A room painted
in white is the most ideal for a pregnant
lady. If plain white is too stark, opt for
pearly or silvery white.
• Never sleep or sit under beams, as they
are made of concrete and iron. They
tend to cause stress and may cause you
to fall ill.
• Avoid a toilet that is positioned under the
stairway. You will be carrying negative
vibes all around the house.
• Do not keep any thorny plants like cactus
or plants that give out a milky white sap
(rubber plants) in your home. Stay away
from bonsai plants too, as they symbolise
• Staying in vibrant environment is important
for pregnant women and keeping fresh
flowers in the house including drawing
and dining room is helpful.
• Always sleep on the left side of husband
and while stepping down from the bed
keep right foot first on the floor.
• Avoid wearing dark and lustrous colours
during pregnancy such as black, dark
red, orange etc. Such colours are
indicative of lunar and solar currents.
Pregnant women should only wear subtle
and soft colours including light shades
of green, blue, white and yellow.
• Do not sit in dark and bleak rooms, there
must be enough light in rooms for good
• Try to read influencing and motivational
books including ancient holy texts.
• Avoiding wall clocks, mirrors, water
scenery on Southern walls of the room/
home will help not only in minimizing the
various health problems but would also
be of great help in diagnosis thereof.
With God’s grace in hundreds of cases, we
could assure normal safe delivery, without
even surgery, with the help of above simple,
spiritual yet scientific remedies.
