The value of time is inestimable. All objects in nature are
produced in "Time", developed in
"Time" and destroyed in "Time". The
truth of these statements requires no further proof. It
stands unchallenged. Time has got it's own properties.
Creative, protective and destructive forces are embedded
in the womb of time. If there could be a tool, which can
give us a clue as to when the various kinds of creative
and destructive forces are in operation, it would be of
great help. A person can time his efforts to do the
right thing at the right moment so that his activities
are in harmony with the laws of nature.

understand it further, just see that there is a time to
sow and a time to reap. Why not we do the sowing
operation during the harvest season? Nature would be
against us. During the sowing season, creative forces
are in operation. When an important activity is to be
undertaken, destructive forces have to be screened off.

union, pregnancy and reproduction of human species are
the essentials on which the world exists. Sexual union
should never be based upon simple sense gratification.
There is sacredness about sexual functions, and when

brought into play, the result will be most
unsatisfactory and all sorts of undesirable progeny
would be the products of promiscuous cohabitation.

But with the advent of computers, Ashtakvarga

gynecologists and obstetricians can utilize this science

in a meaningful way and enable them to bear 'virtuous

indicate physical deformity only, of a to be born child,
and that too, without any remedy. The science of
astrology is preventive too. One must be advised to sow

have designed another very useful report
which suggests some dates and intra-day time slots - when the couple is most likely to succeed in their effort to conceive
naturally. Nuptials on suggested dates and during suggested time-slots for the purpose of conception will ensure that all possible good cosmic vibrations are centered such that the energy generated would nullify all other unfavourable factors and enhances the chances of success of the effort. Wife and husband are thus enabled to remove, neutralize, counter-act or overcome the evils indicated by their respective horoscopes..
The best possible dates (for the purpose of
conceiving), during the considered duration, are
suggested as per wife's horoscope, considering the cumulative beneficence levels of her 5th house, 5th lord and the Jupiter (the "Karaka" for children). The Fifth house is traditionally the house of children. It represents our capacity to have children. This report is primarily based on Ashtakvarga transits in wife's chart.
The exact intra-day time slots, for all dates during the considered duration,
are suggested based on Husband's birth-data. Normally, it is man's vitality, which matters most in this matter. Therefore,
we suggest the exact timings when husband's vitality will be at the best possible, increasing the chances of wife's pregnancy. This
