Putrakameshti is a special Yajna performed in Hinduism for the sake of having a child. It is a kaamya-karma.
In the Ramayana, upon the recommendation of Sage Vashishta, King Dasharatha of Ayodhya performed the Putrakameshti Yajna under the supervision of Rishishringa Muni, who was an expert in Yagur Veda, which has the guidelines for this prayer. After its successful completion, the Lord of Fire, Agnidev appeared and gave a bowl of sweet to the King of Ayodhya, which was provided to his three queens in order to promulgate his sons Sri Rama, Lakshmana, Bharata and Shatrughna.
Jai Shree Ram!!!!!
Puthra kaamesti yagnam is for who have not childs for a long time , It is in Ramyan King Dasaratha made puthara kammesti ,
The yagna pursha Agni deva presented with Yagna pala to Dasratha , king Dasaratha presentded to hisThree wifes , with that Rama, lakshaman , Bhartha, Shatrugna four sons Born.... It is not related for previous incarnation.
That yagnam is done by the childless couples, pleeding blessings for a child-birth.
Putra Kameshti Yajna is performed as indicated in the name itself to get a male child. This Yajna is not performed for doshas like Pitru Dosha. This is performed when you do not have a child in your fate or if some one wants a divine child. For this you need a very learned Vedic priest. There must be such priest to perform it but it is not so easy because to perform this yajna one has to take Yajna Diksha and with it there will be many disciplines to be observed.
This Yajna should be performed on the bak of a holy river.
According to me in Kaliyuga, one should take support from Mantra Shastra and Blessings of One's Guru for this purpose.
Puthra = Son; Kaamesti = desire for; Yagam = a Sacrifice.
A Sacrifice performed with the desire to beget a son.
It is a yagna performed with an intention to get Son. It has nothing to do any dosham etc of this birth or previous birth.
In Hindu tradition of karmkand (worshiping by function for the fulfillment of worldly desires) one type of yagam are called Kamya Karma.These performed for gaining some worldly object.The yagam performed for the birth of son is called "Putr Kaameshti Yagam".There are diffrent attributes of Gods.Yagam is performed to please that God whose attributes one wants in his would be son.
