    Dear Ladies,
    I am currently pregnant (4 months). AM planning to read some religious texts in English ( as I cannot read tamil or any other lang) - in the evenings only, as I am working and dont have time to read in the mornings.
    Could you kindly suggest some good books in English - talk about god, epics, spirituality, etc and where I can buy etc... I am residing in chennai.
    Thanks
    Pavi

    congratulations!
    As the child depends completely on the assimilated foodstuff of the mother, during pregnancy there are restrictions on the food taken by the mother. Too much salt, chili, onion and similar food is forbidden for the pregnant mother because the child's body is too delicate and new for him to tolerate such pungent food. Restrictions and precautions to be taken by the pregnant mother, as enunciated in the smrti scriptures of Vedic literature, are very useful.
    the important and simple thing one can do while pregnancy is
    always chanting the names of God like Krishna, Rama,Vishnu. in way the child can hear them all, This can appear to be very simple and easy but it is the most powerful method that can keep the child in a very cultured nature when he grows up. Whatever he learns in the womb has a great impact in his life. For example Bhakta Prahlad .
    Kayadhu the mother of prahlad prayed for the protection of the baby in her womb, and Närada Muni reassured her and gave her instructions on spiritual knowledge. Taking advantage of those instructions, Prahlada , although a small baby within the womb, listened very carefully. and he was considered one of the great devotee and role model in the history for his unadulterated devotion. The Lord had an incarnation especially for him.
