Muhurtha For Punsvan Sanskar

In Hindu society, spiritualism and religious beliefs have been the guiding principles since time immemorial. They have always been linked with one’s growth and activities undertaken at different stages of life. We carry out rituals as per our religious belief at a particular time. These ceremonies are known as Sanskaras. Their purpose is to give religious and social sanctity to the different stages of physical growth and development. There are a total of sixteen Sanskaras.

In Hinduism, Punsvan Sanskar is an important ritual. The significance of this Sanskar is that it is believed to ready a person for society. By performing this Sanskar good qualities are generated in the native which are equally important for the self and society. A good and responsible citizen enhances the growth and prosperity of a nation. Hence, Punsavan Sanskar has a special place in Vedic astrology.

Punsvan Sanskar is carried out 3 months after impregnation of a woman. The reason for the same is that a child’s brain starts developing after 3 months of its creation. Punsavan Sanskar lays the foundation of the child’s virtue and principles.

This Sanskar is done to ensure that the child born is healthy and growing. Though the child is still in the mother’s womb this ritual is said to have a huge impact on the nature of the child. For example, we all know that the mythical character Abhimanyu, son of Arjuna learned how to break the Chakravyuha when he was in his mother’s womb.

Vedic astrology has auspicious Muhurats for every occasion. It also suggests avoiding inauspicious Muhurats.
