Introduction
What is Family Planning? World Health Organization defines family planning as - "Voluntary planning which involves various measures to be taken by a couple to prevent or delay the pregnancy. These measures are broadly classified as contraception, abortion and sterilization.

Family planning also includes measures taken to treat infertility in order to achieve pregnancy." Many a times, infertility is caused due to abuse of methods to prevent pregnancy such as abortions, hormonal pills, etc. Overall, modern family planning is more or less a skill of using contraception and undergoing abortion or sterilization to terminate unwanted progeny while continuing to succumb to the sensual fetters of the unplanned sex life.

In Vedic understanding, this is an uncivilized and uncultured way of family planning. The foundational principles of modern family planning do not aim to lead an individual to the ultimate goal of life nor help one enlighten towards such a goal. Therefore, such plans are condemned in Vedas as sinful. A cultured alternative is provided by Vedas called as Garbhadhana-samskara, a great science in itself. That is the subject matter of this book.

The Vedic conception of Family Planning is a conscious planning of the act of sexual consummation driven by the sole purpose of obtaining a virtuous progeny and not for sense gratification. Therefore, the act of sexual union is considered as a sacred act of yajna or offering to Lord Vishnu. This sacred act is governed by a set of medical, cultural, astrological and spiritual instructions. It is indeed a great science! Many Vedic texts consider that, Garbhadhana-samskara is to be performed only once for the first time after marriage. However, vratas, chanting of mantras and determining right day time are very crucial for every sexual union. Without planning, progeny is termed as 'unintended'.

According to a report from Center for Disease Control (CDC, USA), a least 50% of first marriages in USA end up in divorce (1.1 % and rising in India), 1.2 million abortions done annually (6-7 Lakh in India] 62% of women in reproductive age use contraceptive methods (50%, in India) and 2/3rd of women in USA have unintended pregnancies In other words, more than half of all the pregnancies in USA aft unintended! About 40 percent of births in the United States is the unmarried women!'

All this means a pathetic raise of unwanted progeny by disturber couples producing disturbed children who grow up as disturbed adult and have disturbed families. Thus, overall the result is a disturber society. This is called as varna-sankara population or population an unwanted progeny in Vedic terms.

There is a marked difference between Vedic Family Planning and Modern Family Planning. Vedic understanding provides for giving birth to and raising as many righteous progeny as possible and considers the sexual act as an act of sacrifice or yajna; while, the modern understanding promotes sexual promiscuity and consider: progeny as a secondary objective or an accidental result of the sexual act and that the primary objective being 'population control'.

Vedic understanding is that the righteous population is not a burdet whereas bad population is. And the righteous progeny is conceiver not by accident but by conscious preparation of mind, body ant environment and conducted on an auspicious day and time governed by astrological principles. This is the cultured way of the civilized World.
