Today our younger generation is being misguided and trapped by the antisocial and fanatic elements. The thinkers of Ancient Indian Society foresee the problem and took the majors in anticipation and faced them successfully. We know, if a constituent part is infected with some disease, contains some deficiency or defect the whole can never be a perfect some. So the development of anindividual good human being is essential for the good society. That’s why the thinkers of the Ancient Indian Society developed a mechanism namely the system of SANSKAARAS to create a good or perfect individual human being so that the society as a whole may be the good one. The Great physician scientist and seer Charaka defines this term as – “SANSKAARO HI GUNAANTARAADHAANAM UCHYATE”. It means that the process of qualitative addition or change in something is called SANSKAARA. It is true that one cannot change the atom of iron into the gold, but through the process of purification the quality of iron can definitely be changed or enhanced. In the same way without genetic modifications good human beings can be created through the SANSKAARAS; thus, the good society also. This process virtually starts with GARBHAADHAANA SANSKAARA i.e. the conceiving ceremony. In fact there are sixteen stages when different ceremonial and scientific activities take place, known as sixteen SANASKAARAS. In this paper Scientific and Psychological approach of the SANSKAARAS will be discussed. What kind of impact may be of these rituals and activities and how these SANSKAARAS work as a vaccination for the social problems like divorce, tension, terrorism etc. I will also discuss that how these SANSKAARAS work and help in creating a physically and mentally healthy Society.
