The Cleansing Properties Of Cow Urine

1010 words - 4 pages

According to Hindu thought Pavithra Jal is Holy water which purifies the mind and body. Panchagavya or the five products from the cow- urine, dung, milk, curd and ghee, used in ayurveda, and Hindu rituals- are believed to have cleansing properties, much like the waters of the Holy Ganges, Lake Pushkar or the Mahamgam Pond.However skeptics may have reservations about the purity and efficacy of the Panchagavya.. Further modern distillation methods to extract the active principle in a bioactive form may help alleviate the queasiness associated with consuming cow urine.
The Holy Cow has a special place in , Hindu mythology and scriptures. The Vedic people believed that the body of the cow houses several demy-gods besides Mahalakshmi. It is revered as a maternal figure or Go Matha because it gives milk throughout its life. When we see Shiva along with the black cow, we are able to overcome the malefic effects of planets in our natal horoscope.(e.g.Sri Akilandeswari temple-Tiruvanikoil) When we see the ankles of the cow we protect ourselves from sudden death. Circumambulating the cow is equivalent to visiting all the holy places.It is Lord Krishna who symbolized the relationship man should have with the cow . Nakul from the Mahabharata was known as a famous cow urine therapist. The cow is the only divine living being that has a Surya Ketu Nadi (vein connected to sun) passing through her backbone. The Surya Ketu vein interacts with the sun’s rays to produce gold salts in the cow’s blood. Therefore cow's milk, butter and ghee have a golden hue. These salts are present in the cow's
milk and other bodily fluids, which miraculously cure many diseases.
If by chance the cow ingests some poisonous or harmful material, it is detoxified by cow’s liver. In the cow unlike other animals species tested so far, toxic metabolites are either completely prevented from entering the urine, dung and milk or are released only in very small quantities.. Therefore cow urine and dung are pure and free from toxins. Cow milk is anti-toxin. Ghee made with cow milk is used in sacrificial fires and havens, purifies the air

Ayurveda and Cow urine:The holy texts, like Atharva Veda, Charaka Samhita, Rajni Ghuntu, Vridhabhagabhatt, Amritasagar, Bhavaprakash, and Sushruta Samhita, , contain detailed descriptions about the medicinal benefits of cow urine. Ayurveda uses cow’s urine in treating problems such as headaches, influenza, indigestion, asthma, filariasis, hypertension, obesity, liver troubles, skin infection and more serious diseases, such as diabetes, T.B., cancer and AIDS. According to Ayurveda the cause of all diseases is the imbalance in three faults (tri-dosas) i.e. mucous, bile and air. Cow urine balances the tri-dosas, thus diseases are cured.
Gomaya (Cow Dung): Gomaya is considered equally valuable as Gomutra and it is used to purify the environment. Cow dung can check the radiation effects Scientists of Ohio State University have developed...
