The cow is called “Gow” in Samskrit and the holy scriptures of Sana:thana Dharma (actual and original name of Hinduism) including The Rig Veda, The Yajurveda, The Upanishads, and The Pura:na:s refer to cow as “Go:ma:ta” (meaning “Mother Cow”) and extoll the importance of Go:ma:ta in the Vedic Civilization or the Vedic way of life because of the kind of central role she plays in Vedic religion/spirituality and economically in our daily lives by giving her milk, ghee, and other daily-use products and their derivatives which are invaluable in Ayurveda medical system, agriculture, veterinary medicine, and other spheres of our existence. Ghee is the most important contribution of go:ma:tha because without cow ghee we cannot perform yagnas/homas which is the single most important ritual in the Vedic religion/spirituality and way of life.

Since ages humans and cows have been the best of friends mutually dependent, caring, and respectful of each other. The cow digests the essence of the earth’s energy in the form of grass, a very concentrated and hard food to digest and assimilate, with the help of her four-chambered stomach where digestion happens in four stages, thereby converting the earth’s essence into milk which they share with their babies and us humans. The cow (go:ma:tha) and ox (nandi) have been our partners all through our rural growth where the cows act as our mothers by providing us with milk, curd, buttermilk, butter, cheese, ghee and even dung as cooking fire and the oxen help us in agriculture and transportation. And we humans worshipped the cow like our mother (and of course the nandi like a father figure) since ages and called her go:ma:tha since she gives us milk even after we grow up when our biological mother stops giving us milk.

Such is the importance of go:ma:tha that she is extolled in the holy scriptures with the sayings “Ga:vo: Viswasya Ma:tharaha” which means “Cow is the mother of the Universe” in The Rig Veda, The Yajur Veda, and The Atharva Veda; and “Ma:tharaha Sarva Bhuta:na:m Ga:vaha Sarva Sukhaprada” which means “Cow is the mother of all living beings and the provider/giver of all pleasures and happiness”.

Even Lord Krishna himself was a cow-herder in his childhood in Vrinda:van (aka Brinda:van) city and always played with cows along with his friends. He loved the company of cows, which are the most sa:ttvic beings, so much that he said the sloka “Ga:vo mey cha:grathaha santhu Ga:vo mey santhu pa:rsvathaha | Ga:vo mey prushtathaha santhu Gava:m madhye vasa:myaham ||” which means “Cows should be in front of me, Cows should be on either side of me. Cows should be behind me. I will always be in the middle of cows.” in the dasama skanda of Srimad Bha:gavatham. This one sloka tells so much about the importance of go:ma:tha.

Cows constitute the stay of all creatures. Cows are the refuge of all creatures. Cows are the embodiment of merit. Cows are sacred and blessed and are sanctifiers of all. One should never, in even one’s heart, do an injury to cows. One should, indeed, always confer happiness on them.

Get Involved
Milk is one of the products we get from cow.  Most of the people think it is the only product but milk is only one part of the whole.  The cow urine and cow dung if added to soil, the fertility of soil increases and the richness of the soil will be maintained.

Phosphorous content from the cows will be more.  The vibrations that their body emit are very powerful to keep the atmosphere around pure.   So to maintain a cow, is always healthy to the keeper.

It is said that taking milk from hybrid or jersey cows is as good as taking the milk from a pig or a donkey.  A common opinion about milk, yoghurt, ghee is they increase wrong cholesterol.  Lower Density Cholesterol – LDC.  It may be true with other types of milk, but if milk from the indigenous cow is taken High density cholesterol increases.  Also the yoghurt formed by cultured milk of this kind also gives good health.  Common practice of making butter is from raw milk.  This is wrong.  It is like extracting juice from unripe mango which causes health hazards.  The milk drawn from these types of cows, boiled properly then cooled and cultured.  The butter churned from this should be boiled to form ghee.  This ghee not only increases the age by protecting the health but also removes the LDC if any.  So the source of milk should be proper and that milk should be treated according to the recommended norm.  So if a cow is there with a family the products of the cow themselves will be able to support tat family for self sustenance.

Panchagavya is a mixture of the milk, curd, ghee, urine, and dung in certain specific proportion and it plays an important role in Ayurveda system of medicine and is mentioned in ancient Indian literature that it enhances the body resistance to infections. Panchagavya is useful for the treatment of several disorders and diseases like allergies, colds, cough, renal disorders, gastrointestinal track disorders, wound healing, skin infections, aging, intoxications, tuberculosis, chicken pox, hepatitis, leprosy etc. It is also being explored to treat deadly diseases like AIDS, diabetes, asthma, heart diseases, arthritis and others. Panchagavya has been found to be useful against flu viruses.
