Updated: Nov 6, 2022

Swarnaprashan is the best health tonic & Immunity Booster for children. This combination was introduced by Maharshi Kashyap. He had described this booster for the nourishment, health, and development of Infants & children. Swarnaprashan works the best when given in pushya nakshatra. Pushya Nakshatra is regarded most auspicious in the Hindu scriptures. Pushya means ‘to nourish’ and hence this nakshatra is said to provide energy and power. Kids born under this constellation are helpful. They also believe in moving ahead in life through their hard work and abilities. It is said that the Goddess of wealth and prosperity – Maa Lakshmi was born on this auspicious day.

According to our Hindu Vedic Astrology, within the 12 signs, there are a total of 27 constellations. Pushya is the 8th constellation. It is regarded as highly auspicious. Blessed by the Gods, Pushya Nakshatra is ruled by Jupiter, and its Lord is Saturn. The Rashi Lord of this constellation is Moon, as it belongs to the Cancer sign. Consequently, the favorable combination of Jupiter and Moon is formed within this constellation. Pushya Nakshatra is therefore considered excellent for performing any auspicious activity. Consuming swarnaprashan on this day is also one of those auspicious activities. Or maybe it is just the Nakshatra and timing that make it auspicious.

Administering Swarnaprashan to children between the ages of 0 to 12 years can improve a child's immunity, memory, IQ, and intelligence. Pushya Nakshatra is considered the most special and it is said that the work done at this time gives auspicious results. It is also the second date of Shukla Paksha of Ashadha month. Astrologers say that worshipping Goddess Lakshmi in this constellation particularly gives positive results. Swarnaprashan consumed otherwise also gives you fair results but a plus one is always a good idea. Hence, consuming swarnaprashan on this day gives you more miraculous results than usual.

Swarnaprashan is given to children to increase their metabolism and overall health. It is believed that this mixture is given in Pushya Nakshatra, as this nakshatra is considered auspicious to take medicines.
