GauSeva

In Bharatiya culture (संस्कृति), Gau is worshiped. Her calf is also worshiped. They are never separated. Take any visual depiction, calf will always be there.

On the other hand, greedy dairy industry, promoted and supported by we the moron society, separates calf from mother within 24 hrs.

Here is the paper that talks about detrimental impact. The stress induced in both mother and calf make them immunological weak.

“Research has shown that the early social environment affects behaviour, stress reactivity and the ability to cope with different challenges in various animal species,” says project leader Susanne Waiblinger from the Institute of Animal Husbandry and Animal Welfare. Waiblinger and first author Kathrin Wagner studied these effects in dairy cows. A previously published substudy by the researchers already showed that rearing with maternal contact gives rise to adults with higher social competence.

Animals reared with maternal contact are more active in stress situations
“Cattle are herd animals. As expected, all animals, whether they were reared with or without mothers, produced higher levels of the stress hormone cortisol when being isolated from the herd, ” Waiblinger explains. Cattle which grew up with their mothers expressed the highest levels of cortisol during isolation, but the heart rate measured in these animals was the lowest. Waiblinger explains: “There are fundamentally different reaction types. Some animals respond to stress situations with an increased heart rate, others produce cortisol. It is possible that the different rearing treatments result in different reaction types.”

So those friends who while looking at modern dairy, criticizing ancient gau-seva practices are wrong. They should correct their stand and be open about symbiotic relation between humans and Bos Indicus. I am completely against domesticating wild species like Bos Taurus (European exotic breed).

Mother yielding milk under stress is as good as poison.

Effects of mother versus artificial rearing during the first 12 weeks of life on challenge responses of dairy cows

http://www.appliedanimalbehaviour.com/article/S0168-1591(14)00329-3/abstract

Abstract

We investigated the effects of mother versus artificial rearing on the responses to a social and a non-social challenge in adulthood. Rearing of treatment groups only differed during the first 12 weeks of life. Artificially reared animals were separated from their mothers within 24 h after birth and fed via an automatic milk feeder six times (A6, n = 6) or twice (A2, n = 5) a day. They were housed together with calves suckled by their mothers twice a day for 15 min (M2, n = 9) or with permanent access to the cow barn and thus to their mothers and the cow herd via selection gates (MP, n = 6). After weaning animals of all rearing treatments were kept together until integration into the dairy cow herd. About 4.5 months after calving (age 31 ± 1.4 months), cows were subjected to an isolation test and two novel objects tests (first: traffic cone, second: ball). ANOVA (behaviour; heart rate of novel object tests) and GLMM (heart rate and cortisol responses to isolation) were used for statistical analyses. During isolation, MP cows were more active: they walked significantly longer (P = 0.036), tended to enter more squares in the middle area of the test arena (P = 0.059), and to explore the arena or the outer environment for longer (P = 0.056) than cows of the other three treatments. In addition, MP and A6 cows had the lowest mean heart rate during isolation, whereas after return into the herd the MP cows showed the lowest heart rate. Cortisol levels differed between groups dependent on sampling time (P = 0.001), with MP cows having the lowest basal values but the highest after the isolation test. In the novel object tests, A6 cows tended to explore the traffic cone later (P = 0.051), focused the ball earlier (P = 0.040) and tended to use the area farther away from the ball more often than cows of the other three treatments (P = 0.100). These results in 2.5-year-old cows suggest that rearing with permanent access to the mother and the herd increases sociality leading to higher behavioural activity during isolation and affects physiological stress reactions so that they resemble a reactive coping style, while reaction to novel objects in the home environment is not affected by mother rearing.

Early separation of cow and calf has long-term effects on social behaviour

http://www.vetmeduni.ac.at/en/infoservice/presseinformation/press-releases-2015/early-separation-of-cow-and-calf-has-long-term-effects-on-social-behaviour/

Calves of dairy cows are generally separated from their mothers within the first 24 hours after birth. The majority of the milk thus enters the food market and not the stomachs of the calves. However, growing up without a mother has consequences. Scientists at the Vetmeduni Vienna studied the long-term effects of early maternal deprivation. Their study shows that calves which have contact to their mothers or to other cows during rearing become more sociable adults. The results of the study were published in the journal Applied Animal Behaviour Science  

Nitric Oxide : Outlier

I always love to understand outliers. Those who are critical players of the divine play yet ignored and cornered. One such element is NO (Nitric Oxide)

HomaNo

NO is recognized as a biological messenger in plants (and also in humans). It is a highly reactive gaseous free radical, soluble in water and lipid.

Due to its high lipophilic (having attraction for lipids, an oily organic compound insoluble in water but soluble in organic solvents; essential structural component of living cells) nature, it can easily diffuse through membrane and can act as a inter- and intracellular messenger and regulate diverse physiological and bio-chemical processes in plants in a concentration-dependent manner, such as seed dormancy, growth and development, senescence, respiration, photosynthesis,programmed cell death, antioxidant defence system, and so on.

More I read about NO (Nitric Oxide), more I feel elated about my fundamental duty i.e. Gau Protection.

Gau prasad (Milk, Ghee, Gobar, Urine) are primary sources of Nitrate metabolites. The great thing is, they are in digested form. Already outcome of one divine organism i.e. Gau. Digested metabolites are easy to work with. Less usage of Prana against more physio-chemical output.

Nitric Oxide (NO) keeps the arteries in shape. Slows down aging related narrowing and thickening. Primary cause of coronary heart disease.

“Nitric oxide also acts on cardiac muscle to decrease contractility and heart rate. NO contributes to the regulation of cardiac contractility. Emerging evidence suggests that coronary artery disease (CAD) is related to defects in generation or action of NO.”

Brahmcharya also play critical role here. Unrestricted indulgence lead to reduced Prana => Dysfunctional processes => Not enough NO => Rapid aging => Rapid narrowing and thickening of arteries (including coronary) => Premature death.

Moreover, NO also has an ability to act simultaneously with other molecules and signals in plants.

So for plants, it is greatest boon possible. Healthy plants -> food with elevated Sattva -> Reduced Tamas in humans.

Who can help? Gau mata. Panchgavya based farming. You and me by performing Homa using Dung and Ghee received as prasad from mother.

Anti-Atherosclerotic Effect of -Blocker with Nitric OxideReleasing Action on the Severe Atherosclerosis

http://journals.lww.com/cardiovascularpharm/Fulltext/2002/02000/Anti_Atherosclerotic_Effect_of___Blocker_with.17.aspx

It is not completely understood whether nitric oxide donors and β-adrenoceptor antagonists have anti-atherosclerotic effects. The anti-atherosclerotic effects of β-adrenergic receptor antagonists and nitric oxide donors on severe atherosclerosis induced by cholesterol and inhibition of nitric oxide synthesis were determined. Six groups of New Zealand white male rabbits were treated for 10 weeks, under the following regimens: group I: high-cholesterol diet (HCD) (standard diet plus 0.5% cholesterol); group II: HCD plus N G -nitro- l -arginine methyl ester ( l -NAME), an inhibitor of nitric oxide synthase; group III: HCD plus l -NAME and isosorbide dinitrate; group IV: HCD plus l -NAME and nitroglycerin; group V: HCD plus l -NAME and nipradilol (β-blocker with nitric oxide–releasing action); and group VI: HCD plus l -NAME and atenolol (β-blocker). Serum lipid levels did not differ among the six groups. Blood pressure and heart rates were slightly decreased in groups V and VI. The atherosclerotic area and aortic cholesterol increased in l -NAME-treated animals but not in animals in group V. The endothelium-dependent relaxations and basal nitric oxide release were impaired in the l -NAME treatment group, though not in group V, in comparison with those in group I. cGMP in the aorta was increased in groups III, IV, and V as compared with that in group II. Endothelial nitric oxide synthase mRNA was decreased in the aortae of l -NAME-treated rabbits and increased in aortae in group V, in comparison with that in group I. Conclusively, nipradilol, β-blocker with nitric oxide–releasing action, in contrast to the other β-blockers and nitric oxide donors, showed a successful anti-atherosclerotic effect through the restoration of nitric oxide bioavailability and possible interaction with oxygen radicals.

Pre-requisites for गौ-रक्षक

You may take steps to protect cows as per your varna and proclivity.

But you must resist, fight and protect cows as per your innate prakriti at any cost (Intellectual writing against cow slaughter, Kshtriya stopping cows going to slaughter house, Vaishya not getting engaged in filthy dairy business and farmer using cow prasad for agriculture)

However there are pre-requisties. Strive for them!

However, there are certain primary things that must be achieved or strive for.

यो विद्यात् सप्त प्रवतः सप्त विद्यात् परावतः |
शिरो यज्ञस्य यो विद्यात् स वशां प्रति गृह्णीयात् ||अथर्ववेदः-10|10|2||
The one who possesses knowledge of 7 flows of life, 7 distances of life, has understood primary purpose of यज्ञ (Life), possesses आत्मविद्या, ब्रह्मविद्या, can only receive and possess cows.

‘ब्राह्मणा भगवन्तो यो वो ब्रह्मिष्ठः स एता गा उदजतामिति’
– Bruhadãranyaka Upanishad: 3/1/2

Janak challenged, ‘O respected Brahmins, whichever one of you knows brahmavidya can take these cows’. The challenge left the Brahmins speechless. Since they had not attained brahmavidya, they were unable to take the cows.

Aatma runs 7 flows in terms of senses 1) बुद्धि २) मन ३) वाणी ४) नेत्र ५) कर्ण ६) नासिका ७) चर्म
But What are 7 distances? What is head of यज्ञ (शिरो यज्ञस्य)? Help please.

If this pre-requisite is missing, it is difficult to serve mother cows.

Pre-requisite = ब्रह्मविद्या + आत्मविद्या

Rain rain, untimely rain again . From Kashmir to Kanya kumari 🙁

#BeefBan Banning cow slaughter is not mere about sentiments. Weather pattern of this land depends upon her.

धृतं तीव्रं जुहोतन ( यजु 3 2)
In holy fire, sacrifice ghee, the one that destroys all imperfections.
Use ghee for success of sacrifice. What is success measure?

निकामे निकामे नः पर्जन्यो वर्षन्तु
Timely and moderate rain.

Shakti peethams and Jyotiralingams are specific energy centers where when sacrificial ritual using गौ सहाय are performed regularly, monsoon and other seasons bestow life-enriching, famine-free, flood-free for consecutive years for Bharat. Evenly distributed tirth-Sthans(s) and never-ending sacrificial rituals at each location, play critical role in controlling weather patterns. Ghee is now procured from dairy, unethical practices, torture to Gau and her calves so rituals don’t bear fruits.

To counter the attack of artificial weather control (Google HAARP to know how US AirForce can control weather), only Gau will help. This may sound superlative and out of mind claim but understand this: Without गौ, this is impossible. Please note. If this is little difficult to digest, I suggest you to leave house and go for Tirth Yatra. Then only present your arguments here.🙂

Urine is composed mainly of water with little quantities of urea, uric acid, salts (phosphates, oxalates of sodium, calcium etc.) and some hormones in varying proportion. It is although a waste product of the body, none the less it has many medicinal properties, which had been recognized by the ancient medical practitioners, and as such used both internally and externally as medicine.

It can be used as remedies for the treatment of worms, dropsy, abdominal enlargements, flatulence, colic, anaemia, abdominal tumor, loss of appetite, tuberculosis, poison, haemorrhoids, amenorrhoea, leucoderma, leprosy, aggravation of kapha and vd ta and in several other mental diseases.

Although Urine is commonly believed to be ‘dirty’, this is not actually the case. Urine is virtually sterile and nearly odorless when it leaves the body. However, afterward, the bacteria contaminate the urine converting it into smelling chemicals that are responsible for the distinctive smell of stale urine, in particular ammonia which is produced from Urea.

So, it is important for a doctor to use FRESH and/or DISTILLED Urine as prescribed by original texts of Ayurveda (Charak, Shushrut et all).

Urine of different animals are used in various illness. Best among them is Gau-mutra. It is also important that you understand difference between Bharatiya Cow and rest. Only Bharatiya breed’s urine work as medicine since her metabolism is blessed to exsert medicinally superior urine, full of Apana प्राण.

Can a mass producer of Gau-mutra based medicine ensure all this? 🙂 No. And so you don’t see impact of urine based medicines.

Go locally. Connect your family with Gau-shala. Be part of medicine preparation. Inquire before you take it. Your money cannot buy you everything :).

Know your mother

In past 4 years, I have spent considerable amount of personal time for studying critical factors affecting our society’s stability and sustenance. Being part of doctor family, I come across many painful suffering frequently.

My observation, research and meeting with people across Gujarat, suggest that, answer for all our problem is with mother गौ (ગાય).

Irony is, we have neglected her so much, left her at perils of living at filthy dump yards of urban cities that we cannot even identify mother properly! So called Amul revolution has turned out mothers into milk yielding machines. Since we now see mother as machines, we don’t mind their substitutes i.e. foreign breeds. So now, we the present generation and all future generations, cannot distinguish mother from rest.

In scientific words, our mother is know as bos primigenius indicus or Bos indicus or Bos taurus indicus.

Check photo to identify mother. Do this exercise with your children so that they can know real mother and start revering her.

Artificial Fertilizers, Nutrient Pollution and Ecological Collapse

0

Eliminating use of animals from farm land and use of artificial fertilizer in farms – these two steps are enough to recognize current western civilization as most barbaric and idiotic society.

India – this land and her culture, instead of leading the world for sustainable future, is under same trap. Thanks to her idiot and selfish children. The Political terrorists.

Nutrients

==========================

Everyone should read this paper. Realize the unity in diversity. Sanatana principle of give and take. Mutual existence. Synergy.

Nature has its own economy, with trading as dynamic as that of any stock exchange. To cope with nutrient deficiencies in their respective habitats, certain plants, animals and fungi have evolved partnerships by which they can swap resources.

But the economic tradeoffs in the natural marketplace are becoming unbalanced by nutrient pollution, most of which can be traced back to nitrogen fertilizers and fossil-fuel consumption. The partners have evolved a reciprocal exchange whereby the heterotroph provides metabolic waste — nitrogen and phosphorus — to the phototroph, which requires these key nutrients to survive. In return, the phototroph supplies its partner with photosynthetically fixed carbon as sugar that the heterotroph uses for energy.

“When you start to add more and more of the nutrients that the animal would normally be providing, the plant is no longer as dependent on that animal for those nutrients and so it starts to return less of the sugars back to the animal,” explained lead author Shantz, a doctoral candidate in the Burkepile Community Ecology Laboratory.

Nutrient loading alters the performance of key nutrient exchange mutualisms

Abstract

Nutrient exchange mutualisms between phototrophs and heterotrophs, such as plants and mycorrhizal fungi or symbiotic algae and corals, underpin the functioning of many ecosystems. These relationships structure communities, promote biodiversity and help maintain food security. Nutrient loading may destabilise these mutualisms by altering the costs and benefits each partner incurs from interacting. Using meta-analyses, we show a near ubiquitous decoupling in mutualism performance across terrestrial and marine environments in which phototrophs benefit from enrichment at the expense of their heterotrophic partners. Importantly, heterotroph identity, their dependence on phototroph-derived C and the type of nutrient enrichment (e.g. nitrogen vs. phosphorus) mediated the responses of different mutualisms to enrichment. Nutrient-driven changes in mutualism performance may alter community organisation and ecosystem processes and increase costs of food production. Consequently, the decoupling of nutrient exchange mutualisms via alterations of the world’s nitrogen and phosphorus cycles may represent an emerging threat of global change.

Give and Take

Researchers analyze how nutrient pollution can negatively impact important ecological relationships

Nature has its own economy, with trading as dynamic as that of any stock exchange. To cope with nutrient deficiencies in their respective habitats, certain plants, animals and fungi have evolved partnerships by which they can swap resources.

However, according to a new study by UC Santa Barbara researchers Deron Burkepile and Andrew Shantz, excess nutrient input — or nutrient pollution —creates an imbalance in the interactions between partner — also known as mutualistic — species across a variety of ecosystems. The culprit: nitrogen fertilizers and fossil-fuel combustion. Their findings appear in the journal Ecology Letters.

In a very short period of time, Burkepile noted, humans have short-circuited the tight recycling of nutrients between mutualistic species, and this in turn has changed the balance of how such partners interact.

“That’s especially important because lots of these organisms are the foundation species of ecosystems without which the ecosystem would cease to exist,” said Burkepile, an associate professor in UCSB’s Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology.

Take, for example, reef-building coral, which contain tiny algae that allow for rapid growth even when nutrient stores are low. “The presence of coral is what makes a coral reef,” Burkepile continued. “Without the association between coral and its symbiotic algae, you wouldn’t have coral reefs. Rainforest trees are what make those systems rainforests, and interactions with microbes are what drive the success of those plants.

“This research,” he added, “really focused on big important organisms within many different ecosystems, so the problem is a worldwide phenomenon.”

These give-and-take scenarios — as with corals and algae — occur between a phototroph, an organism that makes its own food through the process of photosynthesis, and a heterotroph, which must look to its environment for food.

But the economic tradeoffs in the natural marketplace are becoming unbalanced by nutrient pollution, most of which can be traced back to nitrogen fertilizers and fossil-fuel consumption. The partners have evolved a reciprocal exchange whereby the heterotroph provides metabolic waste — nitrogen and phosphorus — to the phototroph, which requires these key nutrients to survive. In return, the phototroph supplies its partner with photosynthetically fixed carbon as sugar that the heterotroph uses for energy.

“When you start to add more and more of the nutrients that the animal would normally be providing, the plant is no longer as dependent on that animal for those nutrients and so it starts to return less of the sugars back to the animal,” explained lead author Shantz, a doctoral candidate in the Burkepile Community Ecology Laboratory.

Dare we ignore incarnation of abundance – The Holy Cow!

Dare we ignore incarnation of abundance(कामधेनु) – The Holy Cow and blissfully invite poverty and diseases like dire conditions for Nation!

When you talk about Cow as Incarnation of ‘Abundance’ to unsympathetic critics of Hinduism, they often prompt frivolous doubts like:
What is the practical import of ancient Vedic religious codes at present day? They were designed and suited for ancient living in early phase of civilization. Any attempt to make these Vedic rituals relevant in present time is utopian and quixotic. And they are not tested by science (:))

This attitude is common and prevailing in modern Hindus. Not only for Cow but for all rituals. Their education alienates them from their roots without being dwelt into scientific enquiry and experiments.

I consider this as utter inefficiency usage of brain.

MIND YOU! Cow protection is not a question of culture preservation or national reconstruction based on traditions; it is simply not a movement towards generating pride in Indian traditions. COW PROTECTION IS IMPERATIVE NECESSITY IN CURRENT STRESSFUL TIME, to once again trace back salutary practices of our Golden past.
Vedic civilization is unique in chequered history of the world. Many civilizations came and disappeared like midnight meteors. Nation rose and fell with their local historical settings. Despite alien intrusion and national sub-ordination, we still stand high, all thanks to faith in local culture.

To bring back National Glory, have guts in belly to decipher and protect Kamdhenu, incarnation of ‘Abundance’. If you don’t have guts, don’t spit venom like ‘Buffalo is better than Cow’ or ‘Cow is just another animal’ and devalue her value in Indian society. By doing that, you invite dire consequences for future generation.

Prana : Dung manure Vs chemical fertilizer

Fertilizer

Difference between manure and chemical fertilizer is as simple as you eat raw grains and cooked rice-dal.

Try eating raw rice dal for some time and observe struggle of your stomach. Do one thing: First eat 10 gm of weekly salt. Then eat 10 gm of each spices. And then some raw vegetables for next day. And third day, uncooked rice. And so on…good meals, right? Try it and see how much stress your digestive track gets.

Same goes with plants when they are treated with raw chemicals as nutrients. This negatively impact their health by two ways

1) Lack of nutrition , Lack of prana, bad health, rapid ageing. By the time they come to your plate, they are dead food. Difficult to digest with no benefits.
2) Lack of prana triggers decay event so mother nature will manage cleaning staff i.e. bacteria. Attack of micro-lives who gather to eat dead chemicals. So pesticides as response and vicious circle goes on.

On the other hand, manure as a fertilizer and cow-urine, cow-butter milk as a pest control, are outcomes from natural/manual churning process. Full of prana. Digestible food. Friendly food. Cooked food. Food that soil loves. Food that bacteria loves.

Digestible (Churned at least once in animal’s digestive system) vs difficult to digest (Raw material)

Full of prana (Treated by animals and humans – high at prana shakti) vs lack of prana (Treated by machines i.e. entities low at prana shakti)

Selection of manure depends upon what plants love to eat. Most plants love Cow-manure in daily food. Do we provide? Well, we are living in critical manure-famine era. There are not enough mother cows to provide enough manure for all plants across all farms of the Nation.

Unless we stop vacuous slaughter of mother, this problem will remain unsolved.
