Sadhguru on Pregnancy & Motherhood

Questioner: I said there is so much effort
and struggle to design and shape human mind when we are out of womb. Is there any way you know, sir, to design
human mind when we are inside womb, that’s my question? Sadhguru: At home – is that what you are asking? Questioner: Inside womb. Sadhguru: Oh, whoa! Whoa! Whoa (Laughter)! Who is pregnant (Laughter/Applause)? If you do not know this – maybe in northern
part of the country it’s largely almost gone totally, in South it’s still little alive in the villages
but there also it’swiped out quite a bit if you do not know this, from preconception to
conception to various stages of pregnancy and delivery and as long as the mother is feeding the child, there’s an entire established process in
this country as to how a woman should eat, what she should do, what kind of people she should
interact with, what kind of form she should look at, what kind of form she should not look at,
what kind of sound she should hear, what kind of sound she should not hear,
all this was very much there. But we must also understand life has changed. Today, women are going to work, they have
to get into that horrible bus, where they’re pushed around, it doesn’t matter,
she’s pregnant and all kinds of things all kinds of fumes, all kinds of sounds,
all kinds of noises, all kinds of abuse, every kind of thing happening to her. In some way we’re doing that
to the child also. Sadhguru: There is no job
in the country or in the world, where you can take off for one-and-a-half
years and get back to the job to fulfill this. For various reasons we are not taking the
business of manufacturing the next generation of people with sufficient care. Tch, we are not paying enough attention to
it, for which we will pay a price. Over a period of time we will pay an
immense price for that. But we are definitely not taking enough care
about it in the entire world, not just in this country. Because we’ve got all kinds of social situations
which does not allow that space for a woman to dedicate that kind of time and attention. Sadhguru: See, being pregnant is not just
about reproduction, we’re literally manufacturing the next generation of people, isn’t it? Is it not important… of all the products
that you produce on this planet, is it not most important that we produce wonderful
human beings for the future generation? Is it not the most important thing (Applause)? But we have created a social situation
and an economic situation, where there is no such possibility
to take care of these things. To whatever extent individual woman or
individual families can take care of it, they can take care of it but for the larger society, it’s
out of question because things have changed, you can’t turn it back just like that. Sadhguru: The intelligence of the body is
such, if you already do not know this, if a woman delivers a male child, the quality
of the milk that she produces is in a certain way. If she delivers a female child, the quality
of the milk is totally different. If she delivers a twin… If she delivers twins, one male and one female,
one breast will ooze certain type of milk, another breast will ooze another kind of milk. This is the level of intelligence invested
in this body, we have to treat it with that much care. This is not some crude machinery, this (Referring to
oneself) is the finest piece of technology on the planet, isn’t it? Yes or no? This is the finest thing. In the evo… entire evolutionary scale, these millions
of years of work that nature did to produce this but in our desperation for economic well-being, I think
we are not paying the kind of attention that this needs the kind of care that this needs so that
this can function at the highest level and can also produce human beings for the future, who are of a certain kind. Sadhguru: So, how to develop the brain
when they are in the womb? It’s very important that the atmosphere
in which the child is growing up is kept in a certain way with least amount of disturbance,
with right kind of reverberations, right kind of sounds, right kind of food, everything. Today, they’re barely nourished, the pregnant
woman, in most part of the country. They’re barely nourished, where is the question
of right kind of vibrations, right kind of atmospheres? One thing we can do for this, is every home if possible
every working place, we can have a consecrated space. Sadhguru: Today, slowly they are
coming up with instruments which can measure the
reverberations of certain objects. We can create cons… consecrated spaces or
we can create consecrated objects which atleast at that time she can carry
upon her body so that, kind of… to some extent it’s not the best solution – to some extent it neutralizes
the outside impact to whatever extent possible. Or if she lives in a home, the place where
she sleeps and other things are taken care of, some amount of respite can be there for
that new life which is blossoming within the womb.
