Gauseva: The Foundation of a Flourishing Society and Happy Families
Mother cow has been called the ladder to heaven, and she is worshiped in heaven too. The cow fulfills all wishes, and there is no other creature better than the cow in this world.
In the scriptures, the cow is also considered as the mother of the whole world (Gavo Vishwasya Matar). Since the Vedic period, the cow, considered to be worshipable, has been a strong pillar of agriculture, commerce, and the Indian economy. Even today, the importance of mother cow remains at the religious-mythological, scientific, and Ayurvedic levels.
Religious and Mythological Significance
All the gods reside in mother cow. Lord Shiva's vehicle, Nandi (bull), Lord Indra's cow, Kamdhenu, who fulfills all wishes, and Lord Shri Krishna's Gopal, along with other goddesses' motherly qualities being reflected in the cow, make it a universal object of worship.
According to the Bhavishya Purana, Brahma resides in the back of the cow, and Lord Vishnu resides in the neck. Lord Shiva resides in the mouth, and all the deities reside in the middle. Every pore of mother cow is the abode of great sages, and the place of the tail is of infinite snake. All the mountains are contained in the hooves, and the holy rivers Ganga and other holy rivers are in the cow urine. Lakshmi resides in the cow, while the sun and the moon reside in the eyes. Overall, the cow is considered a symbol of the earth, Brahman, and God.
Economic Importance and Benefits
In ancient times, prosperity and wealth were measured by cattle, meaning that the more cows one had, the richer they were. The maintenance of families and agriculture depended on the cow. Milk, curd, ghee, cow urine, and dung obtained from cows are considered economically useful. Overall, the cow played an important role in enriching the standard of living for humans. However, the situation has changed today.
Scientific Importance and Benefits
The cow is a very important animal, not only from a religious and economic point of view but also from a scientific perspective. According to scientists, cow dung also absorbs radioactivity. Cow urine contains potassium, sodium, nitrogen, phosphate, urea, uric acid, and an excess amount of lactose while giving milk, all of which are considered medically beneficial.
The most significant factor is the presence of A-2 beta protein in desi cow's milk, which plays an important role in providing protection against heart disease, diabetes, and mental illness. Desi cow's milk contains alpha to casein protein and amino acids that help in protein digestion. These amino acids are not found in foreign cows, which can lead to various diseases. Additionally, A2 milk contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, along with 25 types of proteins that protect the heart and strengthen the body's immunity. Cow's milk also contains a powerful and easily digestible golden element.
Ayurvedic Importance and Benefits
From an Ayurvedic point of view, five things are obtained from the cow: milk, curd, ghee, urine, and dung. Collectively called Panchagavya, they act as antioxidants. Panchgavya also plays an important role in many diseases, including cancer. A-2 protein is found only in desi cow's ghee, while curd contains vitamins and minerals helpful in combating anemia. Cow's ghee is considered nectar, and cow's urine is considered a herbal medicine. Cow dung is used as natural fuel, fertilizer, and pesticide.
Support Gauseva campaign
If you all want that mother cow should not wander from door to door in a hungry, destitute and helpless state, should not be slaughtered in slaughterhouses, then you are humbly requested to give financial support to Shree Krishnayan Desi Gauraksha Evam Gaulok Dham Sewa Samiti.
Shree Krishnayan Desi Gauraksha Evam Gaulok Dham Sewa Samiti’ is one of the largest Gaurakshashala of Desi cows in India. We protect, feed & shelter ailing, starving, destitute and stray Desi Cows & Bulls, the majority of which are abandoned by their owners or saved from butchers. Most of these Gauvansh are milk barren. These cows are brought to our Gaushala from tough conditions. All these cows are fed, sheltered, and looked after by hundreds of Gausewaks who work round the clock. This Gaushala is run and managed by saints. We do not exploit these cows for milk but distribute it free to saints / tapaswis / Gausewaks / Ashrams.
We started with just 11 cows in the year 2010 in Haridwar, and presently we shelter and feed more than 18000 cows & Bulls in various locations all put together. This number is ever-increasing as stray Desi Cows & Bulls mostly deserted by their owner are brought to our Gaurakshashala every day. We are registered with the Animal Welfare Board of India (Chennai) and with the animal welfare board in various states.
