Frequently Asked Questions
How can Vedic Vastu and Astrology help me with parenting?
Many parents are inquisitive to know their kids' future. If Province granted, all would have changed their kid’s future. Many of us think the birth chart is like a chess game, just move the kids as pawns and place them in the desired box. But to tell you the truth, a lot of their life is formed by the age of seven, the formative years, personality is almost built and by the age of 24 years, it is complete. As per Sage Brihat Parashara, after the age of 24, the child’s birth chart becomes independent and is not affected by parents' kundlis. The same goes for psychology. It is important that parenting must be learned by a certified psychiatrist or therapist before youngsters become parents. From the Scriptures’ lens, east and northwest directions are good for newly married couples. While conceiving or conceptualizing, guru mantra or Vedic syllables can be chanted, so that we attract evolved beings in our womb. We must be doing this divine act in a cheerful mood and for that, it is good to keep a check on Vitamin D (sun) and all the hormones (moon) before planning a child. Sri Krishan says, “These cruel and hateful persons, the vile and vicious of humankind, I constantly hurl into the wombs of those with similar demoniac natures in the cycle of rebirth in the material world. These ignorant souls take birth again and again in demoniac wombs. Failing to reach me, O Arjun, they droop to the most abominable type of existence.” Sun is the father, and the moon is the mother, as per Astrology and the most important planets in the chart. As per Modern Psychology, children are influenced the most by their parents. Children ape their parents unconsciously. So, I suggest we take lessons before becoming parents. If the kids are nurtured well with food, love, and care, trust me, they will be smart, balanced, and strong kids. Stronger kids will lead to a stronger nation. Just holding your child’s hand, hugging them, will give them a sense of security. They will always come back to you and never rely on intoxicating substances. If you want your child’s Sun to improve in the chart, just work on building the father-child relationship. Always keep their Vitamin D at an optimum level and sit with them in the sun for at least 20 minutes daily. Even during pregnancy, it must be kept at an optimum level. The same goes with the Moon as the Moon is mother, stay hydrated. The key habits to raising a successful child are to inculcate–an outdoor sport, reading, and building talent. If they have a talent, they will never sleep hungry in their lives. An outdoor sport will ensure they come home tired and sleep well. Reading will always help them raise their level of consciousness. When the roots are deep, there is no need to fear the strong winds. The kids are constantly watching you, so behave the way you want your kids to be. “Monkey tell monkey do”- does that happen? No, it never happens. “Monkey sees monkeys do”- Our kids do what they see. The emotional trauma that a kid goes through is hardly taken care of. Instead, they are given lectures on high morals and spiritual lessons. I suggest the parents must work on their minds and rest assured their kids will be just fine.
How to do Vastu in an apartment?
Energize the entrance and brahmasthan by placing a Manjusha. Do not try to change the kitchen and toilet in existing apartments. Even if you change the toilet, the pipeline still exists, and other residents are still using the toilets on other floors. Hence it is pointless. Rather, focus on making other things positive. If positive points outweigh negative points then Vastu is taken care of, says Architect Mandan, author of Sri RajVallabh.
