Be Very Interested in Cows…

  “Persons who are advancing in Krishna Consciousness should therefore take instruction from this pastime and also be very interested in cows and the holy name of Visnu” –Srila Prabhupada (in ‘Krsna – The Supreme Personality of Godhead’, Chap 6, Putana Killed, Pg-60) The Sankirtana movement Srila Prabhupada implanted all over the world is creating a revolution by making more and more receive sublime way of living in Krishna Consciousness. The more preaching of holy names going on, more the devotee community is increasing and educated people living in cities are taking part. The central to the philosophy of Krishna Consciousness is however, “Simple Living – High Thinking”. And central to “Simple Living – High Thinking” is Cow. In other words, when there is no “Simple Living – High Thinking”, then there will be no Cow protection. Similarly, when there is no Cow protection there will be no “Simple Living [...]

Saga of Foolishness!

“Bharat Varsha”, also known as “Arya Vart” and now constitutionally named as “India” is pre-dominantly a country of villages. The economy of this country is mainly based on Agriculture. Agriculture and no other culture is the culture of India. The king-pin of agriculture in the country is the Cow, other-wise known as “Kamdhenu”. Perhaps no country on Earth has the special relationship with cows that India does, a relationship that is often misinterpreted in the West as Cow-worship. The Cow in Indian Culture is considered as a mother figure nurturing life. It may be hard to believe, but “Independent India” now kills more cows than ever before! Even more than enslaved India under Christian British rule, or even the ruthless Moslem emperors! It is usually said today that you cannot really be sure if there is not a tiny little bit of some cow part in the pills or medicine [...]

Vegetarianism – reasons of benifits

Reasons to why void non veg and adopt Vegetarianism Vegetarianism A lot of people think it’s a hassle. Truth is, meat-eating is the real hassle, the real self-sacrifice. I’ll explain: Economically Meat-eating is just about the most expensive legal habit you can have. It’s just way too much of a bummer for me to drive down to the store and shell out all that cash for a little slab of flesh. My approach is so much simpler – last night, for example, I tossed in three bucks grand total and made a big, tasty, filling dinner. It blows me away how expensive meat-eating is. Smart shopper, you don’t need me to tell you more – just truck on down to the supermarket and scope out the facts. Health With all the stress on cholesterol and that stuff, it’s no secret that meat is a time bomb. I can’t figure out [...]

Cows in Vedic Tradition – Reasons to Worship Mother Cow

According to my understanding Hindus worship cows because they were our livelihood. If this were the case, then we would have other’s worshiping the horse, others worshiping the goat, others worshiping their jewellery, etc., according to their livelihood. The worship of the cow goes much deeper than the economic development we receive from her. Do the scriptures tell us to worship our mother, father and guru simply because they feed us? Or is there a higher purpose behind it? Within the body of the cow reside all 33 crore devatas. Respect to the cow is respect to God, for where ever there is the cow, Lord Vishnu also resides. This is the scriptural statement. We should not lower our motives to the respect for money or livelihood. The Gita (8.6) tells us that the realized soul sees gold and stones equally, having no attachment for either: jnana-vijnana-triptatma kuta-stho vijitendriyah yukta [...]

Your Lipstick: Made With Cow Brains

Here’s the bad news: Cow brains may be an ingredient in your lipstick. The good news? The FDA is banning it. The Food and Drug Administration has told cosmetics makers they can no longer use brain and spinal cord tissue from older cattle in lipstick, hair sprays, and other products, reports The Associated Press. The fact that they were used at all will likely surprise millions of women who use these products daily. And that’s not the only surprise: The new FDA regulations still allow use of these animal tissues in cosmetics as long as they come from younger cattle. The ban on cow brains and spinal cord tissue from cosmetics is aimed at preventing a fatal human variant of mad cow disease, called Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, from reaching people. Also known as bovine spongiform encephalopathy, mad cow disease causes the brains of infected animals to waste away. There is no [...]
