Description
Foreword

It is due to the effect of good or bad acts of previous birth any creature is born. In a way the human race is the best of all species of creatures in the world. after a long period of conception the mother gives birth of the baby undergoing some suffering. During the first year of the baby the mother feeds it with milk. Thereafter the cow milk is an important item of the body diet. Thus both the mother and the cow nourish the baby hence cow is called the mother of Mankind i.e. Go Maa both are the aspects of the divine mother Jangamata or Sri mata which is the first name in Lalita Sahasra Nama. Also visnu is called Ksira Sagara Sayana one who dwells in the ocean of milk. Krsna resides in Go Loka the world of cows Cow belongs to the dynasty of Kamadhenu the celestial cow which fulfils wishes. Dattatreya the supreme Universal Master of Yoga always keeps a cow close to him.

Hence it is highly essential that one must protect and look after the welfare of mother and cow. Hurting and killing the cow are sins. Now let us know how to worship the cow.

 

Introduction

We find the significance, merit and method of cow worship mentioned several times in the vast sacred, ancient literature of mankind - the Vedas and Puranas (mythology) If one worships the cow, the departed souls of his ancestors are liberated. Also, one is blessed with peace and plenty both in material and spiritual aspects of life by this worship. He becomes wealthy. He gets the Knowledge of Self. He gets the punya (merit) of bath in all sacred waters and of visit to all sacred shrines. One must get up in dawn, bathe and start cow worship. Abhiseka ( pouring of water) must be done on the horns of the cow. Drops of such holy water from the horns must be sprinkled on one ‘shead. This pious practice gives punya (merit) equivalent to the bath in all holy water of the world. The darsana (vision) of the cow‘s back, relieves one of all sins. It brings about immense welfare. The cow dung, urine, milk, curd and ghee - all these five are very precious and highly beneficial in various aspects of human life. Also if one performs Abhiseka to Siva using Panca Amrta - cow milk, cow curd, cow ghee, sugar and honey, he will attain salvation. Incidentally, it is pertinent to recollect that Ayurveda the ancient science of Indian Medicine-detail sat length, the various curative effects of these pure ingredients. It is obvious to one and all that yagas performed reciting mantras (Chants) and offering cow ghee to fire-removes pollution of the atmosphere - both external as also internal (of the mind).Hence the protection of cow at home is equivalent to the presence of Kamadhenu-the wish -yielding Divine cow itself. This is certain. The cow shed is very sacred. One must always keep it clean. The different types of worship the various yagas as also the rituals connected with the death ceremonies of one’s ancestors performed in the cow shed will cause immense benefit to the doer.

Testimonials
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
