Priceless Prasad : Cow Dung Ash

1

These references from Manu Smriti signifies priceless value of Holy Ash of Gau maa’s Prasad.

तैजसानां मणीनां च सर्वस्याश्ममयस्य च ।
भस्मनाद्भिर्मृदा चैव शुद्धिरुक्ता मनीषिभिः । ।
The wise ordain that all (objects) made of metal, gems, and anything made of stone are to be cleansed with ashes, earth, and water. (Who needs washing powder? )

न मूत्रं पथि कुर्वीत न भस्मनि न गोव्रजे । ।
Do not spoil sacred ash. (It is like spoiling your daily medicines, supplements! Will you do it?)

वेणुवैदलभाण्डानां लवणानां तथैव च ।
मृण्मयानां च हरणे मृदो भस्मन एव च ।
Double the fine when someone steal holy Ash. ( More than gold!)

Cycle of destruction started by occupying minds of locals. First, they made Manu and his teaching irrelevant by changing education system. Once Manu became irrelevant and controversial, गौ became just another animal on the street. Now, गौ has become irrelevant….wait and watch for total collapse.

Desi Cow’s Dung : Essential fuel for Ayurveda

CWPcQiEVEAA-lHD

Can you run a diesel car with petrol? Or a petrol car with Kerosene? What if, you do that? What happens to engine?

Similarly, Ayurvedic medicines cannot be prepared with any other fuel but cow-dung. DESI COW DUNG. Period.

It is this vital factor, that is missing in preparation of Ayurvedic medicines now a days and so you see no impact of medicines. From purification of minerals to preparation of ark, fire is necessary and that too slow burning on cow-dung cake. No gas or electric burner can serve the purpose, like the car example I gave above.

Everyday millions of cows are slaughtered as they become useless for owners. Millions of them are forced for pregnancy to satisfy our milk thirst. And Ayurveda becomes irrelevant day by day in upcoming generations.

If there is one thing one can do to stop this nonsense, is SAVE COW and NURTURE COW. LOVE COW.

At least, teach your child a lesson that dung is not bad. Dung is boon! Mother Cow’s boon!

Gau, Ganga and Bioremediation of Pharmaceuticals, Pesticides, and Petrochemicals

To recover from our most grotesque outcomes of industrialization, her help is needed. Critical help. Her प्रसाद is गंगा स्वरुप. She can wash our sins selflessly. Our crimes of polluting जल,वायु & जमीन.

All this is possible if we save and protect her. Time is running fast. If she is not protected as early as possible, recovery from possible collapse would be much slower than expected.

Bioremediation of Pharmaceuticals, Pesticides, and Petrochemicals with Gomeya/Cow Dung

https://www.hindawi.com/journals/isrn/2011/362459/

Use and misuse of pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and petrochemicals by man is causing havoc with nature, as they persist as such or as their toxic metabolites. These pollutants bioaccumulate in environment, and they ultimately reach man through various means. They are hazardous because of potential toxicity, mutagenicity, carcinogenicity, and genotoxicity. To rejuvenate nature, remediation methods currently available are usually expensive and might convert one toxic pollutant to another. Bioremediation methods use naturally occurring microorganisms to detoxify man-made pollutants so that they change pollutants to innocuous products that make soil fertile in the process. Taking cue from Ayurveda, Gomeya/cow dung is used as an excellent bioremediation method. Thus, utilizing freely available cow dung as slurry or after composting in rural areas, is a cheap and effective measure to bioremediate the harmful pollutants. Yet, more research in this direction is warranted to bioremediate nonbiodegradable, potentially toxic pollutants.

~~~

What is Bioremediation?

Bioremediation is the use of naturally occurring microorganisms or genetically engineered microorganisms (bacteria and fungi) by man, to detoxify man-made pollutants [22]. Earthworms are capable of bioaccumulating heavy metals in their body tissues especially chloragocytes, and their intestinal microflora has the capacity to detoxify most of the pesticides. Earthworms are good additions to enhance the activity of natural and cheap composts to detoxify the environment. Microorganisms have a unique ability to interact both chemically and physically with a huge range of both man-made and naturally occurring compounds leading to a structural change to, or the complete degradation of the, target molecule.

3.1. Vedic Literature

Ayurveda is one of the life sciences of the Vedic Indian period. Panchgavya Chikitsa is a part of Ayurveda (i.e., therapy with cow products, namely, milk, curd, clarified butter, urine, and dung). It is one of the main principles is that the world is made up of a combination of the five basic elements—ether, earth, air, water, and fire with a harmonious blend in the human body, flora, and fauna alike.

Susruta (one of the pioneers of Ayurveda) mentions that the human body is made up of these five basic elements in a delicate balance—Asimnchhaste panchmahabhut sharire samvaiym purusheh etyuchyte.22 (Sushruta Samhita 1 [23])

Susruta also says that when this delicate harmonious balance is interfered with, there would be disease in the world. Bhutebhyo hi param kinchinnasti chinta chikitsite.8 (Sushruta Samhita 1 [23])

Nature has made various natural mechanisms by which all waste are biodegraded naturally leaving no toxins in the environment, thus they do not harm the environment in any manner.

4. Gomeya/Cow Dung

According to Ayurveda, Gomeya/cow dung is not a waste product, but it is a purifier of all wastes in the nature [24]. When spread over urban and rural waste in solution form (1:10–1:25 solution), it biodegrades the waste in time. It is a “gold mine” due its wide applications in the field of agriculture, energy resource, environmental protection, and therapeutic applications.

Cow dung is a cheap and easily available rich source of microflora. Though cow dung has been used in several studies, but the breed of cow has not been mentioned. As per Indian Vedic scriptures, cow dung obtained from Indian indigenous cow/Bos indicus/Zebu breed is better than that of other newer breeds. Ideally, the source of cow dung as per Ayurveda should be from a healthy Zebu cow, fed upon healthy diet of pastures including various natural herbs and which has been reared hygienically.

Shranivartan vrtya ne nivartan vrtya Bhumyachshrtrsm prdishstabhyam ena ne vrtya (Rigveda 10, 19, 8 [25])

Rigveda advises man to let the cows graze freely in the meadows in all the four directions everyday without any restrictions.

8. Conclusion

Taking cue from Ayurveda, Gomeya/cow dung acts as an excellent bioremediation method. It is cheap, a economically viable option and is locally available in the rural areas of India. Much more exhaustive studies are required to bioremediate the active pharmaceutical agents especially the ones which are nonbiodegradable and persistors in nature. Thus, the adverse effects of these chemicals on flora and fauna can be minimized for a healthy and safe future. These effects can be further studied and validated as per modern research methodology.

Clean India Without Cow Dung Ash?

Clean India? Svacchch Bharat? Without stopping cow-slaughter?

Society that throws away cow dung and urine is disfigured.

यदस्याः पल्पूलनं शकृद्दासी समस्यति ।
ततोऽपरूपं जायते तस्मादव्येष्यदेनसः ।। अथर्व 12-4-9
Throwing away in to waste the Cow Dung and Cow
Urine disfigures the society.
गोबर गोमूत्र व्यर्थ करने से समाज के रूप की सुन्दरता नष्ट हो जाती
है ।

For Manu, dung ash has utmost importance in maintaining societal fabric.

These references from Manu Smriti signifies priceless value of Holy Ash of Gau maa’s Prasad.

तैजसानां मणीनां च सर्वस्याश्ममयस्य च ।
भस्मनाद्भिर्मृदा चैव शुद्धिरुक्ता मनीषिभिः । ।
The wise ordain that all (objects) made of metal, gems, and anything made of stone are to be cleansed with ashes, earth, and water. (Who needs washing powder? )
न मूत्रं पथि कुर्वीत न भस्मनि न गोव्रजे । ।
Do not spoil sacred ash. (It is like spoiling your daily medicines, supplements! Will you do it?)
वेणुवैदलभाण्डानां लवणानां तथैव च ।
मृण्मयानां च हरणे मृदो भस्मन एव च ।
Double the fine when someone steal holy Ash. ( More than gold!)

This shows importance of dung ash.Cycle of destruction started by occupying minds of locals. First, they made Manu and his teaching irrelevant by changing education system. Once Manu became irrelevant and controversial, गौ became just another animal on the street. Now, गौ has become irrelevant…

Can we clean Bharat Bhumi without Gau mata and Homa? I doubt.

Gau seva and Homa were primary duties of the Grihasthi. No more followed now. So we do not have Gau and ash both.

So what do we do after cleaning the public place?

DDT? Is it environment friendly? Is it healthy friendly? Google and find out. Is it really a cleaning?

Solution is in Manu’s code. Follow his instruction. Bring back Gau mata in your life again. Bring back Agni-Fire ritual back in the life.

विभूति is Sanskrit word. Generally, it is used to denote the sacred ash which is made of burnt dried cow-dung and herbal jungle woods during fire-rituals. We in Bharat, irrespective of sects, make a paste by mixing vibhuhti with water and smear it as three horizontal lines across the forehead and other parts of the body. Some of us are instructed by grand-parents to use this sacred ash for filtering water, bleaching clothes and many such routine chores. Ayurvedic doctor prescribes tooth-powder made up of ash. Indigestion troubles are cured using ashes. In Sanskrit, Bhoothi means Aishwaryam, meaning wealth, treasure, precious. Vi-bhoothi with an Upasarga (preposition “vi”) means very or more valuable. In short, विभूति plays vital role in our spiritual and material bodies’ rejuvenation. Following scriptures put value of Ash very high:

• UpaniShad: rAmarahasya,chANdilya,jApAla,bhRihadjApAla,taitriya,shvedAshvatara,chApAli,vAsudeva
• SmRiti: bharadvAja – sAtAtapa – parAchara,Gautama,manu
• PurANa: liNga,shiva,skanda,gAruDa,matsya,Aditya,brahmANDa
• ItihAsam: rAmAyaNam,mahAbhAratam

Holy Ash is important in home because:
• It is cheapest water purifier! (All harmful bacteria are killed just by adding a pinch or two of cow dung ash in few liters of water. We have to use cow dung ash that comes from Desi breed. And burning is done using pure ghee of same cow)
This option of adding cow dung ash is so cheap that anyone can afford it. It has absolutely no side effects unlike chemical solutions like chlorine.
• Cow dung ash could be used very efficiently for cleaning vessels as well. This is again a very cheap alternative to all chemical washing powders.
• Cleaning of utensils is daily household activity. For centuries this was done with ash of cow dung. Now days, we see that instead of dung cakes, detergent or washing powder is being used.
• Many times, especially diabetic patients have wounds on legs and hands which become very difficult to cure. If we apply cow dung ash on these wounds then the wounds gets healed and that too quickly. (Recently, my mother had severe swelling on hands after finishing red chilli grinding. She applied holy ash prepared at home and swelling was healed in no time!)
• Cow dung ash was used for preserving grains. This ash can save India from debts of World Bank. The ash which is left over after using dung for fuel may not have any monetary value but it is actually precious. Previously kings used to preserve grains in their granary for use in drought years. They would preserve the grains like jowar etc for 12 years without damage.
We can now just begin to understand why cow dung is called gold mine or rather why the scriptures say that Laxmiji (goddess of fortune/wealth) resides in cow dung.

Now, come to the point.

We do not value mother cow. We do not value her precious gifts. In fact, we go one step ahead and insult all our citizens who are working for a cause of cow-protection. In social circles, word ‘Gobar’ is used to denote something dirty and useless. And what do we do?
We buy Flatuba tablets prescribed by doctors for indigestion and gastric troubles. Pregnant mothers know this well.
We buy stupid facewash who exploit Holy Ash name by labelling product as ‘With Active Carbon’.

Aren’t these foolish acts? Insanity and slavery at their best! Why do we love to live like a fool?

==============
Action Items
==============
• Involve yourself and family in cow-protection
• Not just by monetary support! Donate your time for Gau-shala!
• Do fire-rituals regularly!
• Preserve precious holy ash and use it for material and spiritual benefits
