Shasti Vrata For Children How To Follow

I have posted some Mantras on Santhana Gopala Mantras for being Blessed with Children.


I included in the post Mantras to prevent abortion.


A little earlier I posted an article on Karbha Rakshmbigai for easy , natural delivery.


Many readers wanted  to know more on this subject.

To begin with I am providing information on how to follow the Shasti Vrata for Lord Subrahmnya for begetting children.


I have observed, personally,that this Vrata has blessed the couple with children, in one case after 12 years and in another after six years.


Have a Subrahmanya Idol/Photo at Home.


Choose the sixth day of the Waxing moon, Shukla Shasti.


Take  two one rupee or five rupees coins , have them tied up in a new white cloth tinged with turmeric powder.


Pray your Family Deity for child.


Keep these coins in the pooja room or in front of the Deity at Home.


( all these are to be performed after taking bath and with out taking food).


Preferable if the husband wears Pancha kachcha and ladies Madisar,


Perform the Astotra of Lord Subramanya.


As Naivedya, offer Milk Payasam ot Sakkarai pongal.


On this day the couple are not to eat anything.


They should take fruits in the night.


The couple should be together in the night.


This Vrata has to be performed for 45 days( on every Shasti, both Shukla and Krishna Shasti)


Ensure that you do not disclose to others that you are following this Vrata.


I have noticed that woman conceive after the second observance, that is after the first shukla shasi when they have started the Vrata.


If it possible, one may visit the Family Deity and Lord Subramanya in any of His Arupadai veedu, His Six Abodes , before the starting the Vrata.


Or one may visit after the child is born and offer the Coins they have kept at Home before the Vrata.

    In the morning while trying one rupee coin by mistake I did tie only one instead of two coins.I realised it in the evening n added one more coin in the evening n tied it again.Does it mean that my vratam is incomplete today?Should I restart again next Shashti?Kindly help with your reply.Thanks.
