Cows are one of the first species to have been domesticated by man mostly during the late Neolithic period. It is the only species in the world who’s every product and by-product is wholesomely consumed by the human race inherently for its betterment and also for protecting the environment from the evil effects of pollution and global warming.
Panchagavya, the five products received from the cow, namely milk, yoghurt, ghee, cow dung and cow urine, are required in all ritualistic ceremonies performed according to the Vedic directions. Cow urine and cow dung are scientifically uncontaminated and since even the urine and dung of a cow are important, we can just imagine how important this animal is to human civilisation.
The cow, eating only grass, happily supplies milk, which provides virtually all of the nutrients our bodies need. From milk we get cheese, curd, butter, ghee (clarified butter), whey, cream, yoghurt, and an endless variety of milk-based preparations well known to experts in traditional Indian cookery. Since the cow supplies milk, she is accepted in the Vedas as our mother.
Motherland International Foundation (MIF) has organised a programe “Cow… Quest for Science” on 01st December 2016 at Saraswati Bal Mandir, Amar Colony, New Delhi with a mission to educate future generation about the significance of Cow, spiritually and scientifically.
