Vedic Uses For Cow Dung

In the rural areas of India it is customary to make patties from cow dung. Each family has a few cows, the cows eat fresh grass or hay, they give milk, and their dung is made into patties and used as fuel, for cooking, for heating and many other purposes. The video shows a few rural women making the dung patties, drying them and storing them in a hut, which is also made of cow dung. This is a maximal and very practical utilization of the cow's products - therefore in India the cow is considered a mother. If the cows are raised with love, fed with the proper food, and cared for, in a very natural way according the cow nature, they give back. In the following videos we will see how the cow dung is used for cooking, for creating an "oven" for burning clay cups, and for producing Ayurvedic toiletries such as tooth brushing powder, soaps, disinfectants, incense and more.

© 2015 by the Vedic Ranch Goshala & Cow Care.. We are acting under the auspicies of the Sedona Center of Vedic Culture, a non-profil 501(c)(3) organization, whose aim is to help bring about a spiritual revolution in the world, through disemination of spiritual knoiwledge found in the Vedic literature, and through the cultural exhibits of its master plans (http://sedonavedicculture.com). The Vedic Ranch is an inspirtaion from His Divine Grace A.C. Bhakivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Founder-Acarya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). Although the Vedic Ranch & Goshala is a separate and independent spiritual venture, some of its members and organizers are disciples or followers of His Divine Grace, who stressed so much the importance of cow protection and developing goshalas all over the world, for the protection of the cows and bulls. Goshala means a plavce where the cows are protected. The cows are treated as sacred in India because they act as "mother" for the entire human society by supplying milk, which when taken, builds higher brain cells for understanding God. Most temples in India have goshalas in which the milk from such protected cows is used in service of the Deities of the Lord. Goshala ki Jaya!
