Garbh Sanskar:Traditional Mythological Stories

Traditional Mythological Stories Behind Garbh Sanskar:
Here are some of the best known
One of the most famous and well-known tales is that of Abhimanyu from the Mahabharata. When Arjuna's wife was pregnant with their son Abhimanyu, he told her about how to penetrate the Chakravyuh, a particular war formation. When Abhimanyu became a young man and a warrior in the Kurukshetra war, he remembered his father's story. He was able to employ the strategy that he had heard his father tell his mother while he was in her womb.
The story of Prahlad is from the Puranas. Prahlad was born into a family of demons who were wreaking havoc on the Gods in heaven. His mother listened to devotional prayers and stories about Lord Vishnu while he was in her womb. As a result, he became a devotee of Lord Vishnu. He stood by good and renounced all evil. This led to the downfall of his demon father's evil empire.
Lord Hanuman
Lord Hanuman's mother Anjana was an ardent devotee of Lord Shiva. When she was pregnant she ate a blessed dessert meant to produce divine children. Lord Hanuman was thus born with divine powers. He dedicated his life to fighting evil and was loyal to Ram and Sita.
Ashtavakra's mother Sujata wanted her son to be the most intelligent sage there ever was. So she would sit in on the classes taught by her father and husband while she was pregnant. In a class taught by her husband, the unborn baby spoke up and corrected his father Kahoda. Kahoda feeling insulted cursed his son to be born deformed. So Astavakra was born physically challenged. But as he had taken part in the classes of his learned father and grandfather while in the womb of his mother, he was a genius. The story goes on to say that because of his intelligence, he was able to fix his physical handicap. So in the end he became a handsome man as well as the most intelligent sage of his time.
