With flower garlands, sandalwood pulp, ornaments and other paraphernalia, a woman following this vow should worship women who have sons and whose husbands are living. The pregnant wife should worship her husband and offer him prayers. She should meditate upon him, thinking that he is situated in her womb.
The child in the womb is a part of the husbands body. Therefore the husband, through his representative, indirectly remains within the womb of his pregnant wife.
