Question
Dear Sir!

When will aathma select the parents of his/her? During the pregenency of mother's 4/5 month or before the delivery?

Answer
Hi,

It is done well before conception. At the time of death, the desires in the mind determines the next course of action. Depending on the availability of the fructifying karma, one selects the future parents.

Then the jeevathma descends to the rain bearing clouds. Then through the food it enters the chosen father's body and becomes the sperm. So the selection of the parents happen well before conception.

Thanks for asking this question. And will be glad to provide more clarifications if required.

Best wishes,
