No ritual of this land ends without Prasad. No Prasad without Panchamrita (पञ्चामृत). It is a mixture of five foods used in Hindu worship and puja, usually honey, sugar, milk, yogurt, and ghee. I remember, how my mother used to stop me every time I start from home for exam. She would feed a spoon full of misti dahi (dahi and/or jaggery/sugar) as a शुकन token and my success in exams. In marriage ritual, पञ्चामृत is used profusely as it is major emotional event for both families. Mighty God Krishna is never seen without probiotic food.
Amazing science behind it! As I shared in last post about connection of CAT and अपशुकन in last post, here is the connection of पञ्चामृत and शुकन (Well-being or well-execution of future immediate actions). All thanks to tiny little microbes whom we are ready to kill everyday using anti-microbes weapons. 🙂
Lactobacilli bacteria in dahi reduces anxiety, chronic fatigue and depression. That is the magic of just one type of bacteria. Generally when dahi is fermented at home, it can have all beneficial bacteria. In पञ्चामृत, ghee and honey are potent probiotic food, increasing potency of altering our mood.
There is another bacteria in probiotic food: Bifidobacterium infantis. Probiotic treatment with B. infantis in a rat maternal separation model of depression resulted in a normal immune response, normal behavior, and normal levels of stress hormone in the brainstem compared to untreated rats. (As I’ve stated many times here, gut function affects all body parts, including the brain.)
So your mother or grandmother was more scientific than you and me who were laughing on them for blind rituals.
Things to take care for availing full benefits of probiotic Dahi
1) Fermentation must happen at home. Factory made Dahi will have bacteria from factory environment (other than Lactobacilli). Our home is full of bacteria suited for our body. So prepare dahi at home.
2) For probiotics to survive beyond acidic stomach pathway and establish themselves in GUT, milk, honey, jiggery used should be full of nutrition which bacteria can use for survival in harsh stomach conditions. Find Raw Desi Gay milk for it. Find chemical-free unprocessed honey and jiggery. Find unrefined non-white sugar.
3) Consume fresh Dahi. Do not refrigerate.
4) Prepare Panchamrit. Not exclusive dahi. Take in small quantity. For large quantity, prepare butter milk.
5) Avoid during monsoon due to unstable environment crowded so many different pathogens.

इस त्रिगुणात्मक जगत् में तीन पुष्टियाँ बनी रर्हें – (1) अन्न की बहुतायत (2) पुरुषों की बहुलता तथा (3) पशुओं की बहुतायत | ये इस संसार में बनी रहें, पशुपति दूध-घी से भरपूर रहें | दूध-घी कहाँ से आये ? पशुओं से | पशुओं मे गौ का घी-दूध सबकी अपेक्षा उत्कृष्ट माना गया है | अतएव वेद में गौ की महिमा बहुत है | यथा – गावो भगो गाव इन्द्रो मे | (अथर्ववेद 4|21|5) = गौएँ ही भाग्य और गौएँ ही मेरा ऐश्वर्य हैं |
सन्तान सहित गौएँ उत्तम चारे के कारण पुष्ट हों, उत्तम जलपान के स्थान में शुद्ध जल का पान करें |
आज गोभक्त आर्य इस उपदेश को भूल सा गया है | अब न अच्छा चारा देते हैं और न गौओं को शुद्ध जल पिलाने की व्यवस्था की जाती है | यह तभी हो सकता है जब स्व आ दमे सुदुधा यस्य धेनुः – अपने घर में ही उत्तम दूध देने वाली गौ हो |
वेद के कथनानुसार जिसके दूध के पीने से दुर्बल भी हृष्ट पुष्ट हो जाते हैं और श्रीहीन सुश्रीक = सुन्दर शोभामान् हो जाते हैं, उससे पूरा लाभ उठाने के लिए उसे घर में पालना अच्छा होता है | इसका दूध पीने से गोपति जल में विद्युत् के समान चमकता है ||

I feel little ashamed for our ignorance, when we Indians call ‘Jersey’ ,breed of wild European animal Aurochs as ‘गाय’, worship it and drink her milk as if we are drinking गाय दूध. And more dangerous ignorance is to be ashamed when we don’t know that Aurochs breed’s(As if Jersey) milk has CASOMORPHINE, whose accumulation in body leads to a peptide poisoning. This is particularly often reported in patients with ADHD, autism and schizophrenia.
Why Food chain correction is most critical problem?
Apart from external environmental factors affecting mind space, it is our polluted food and water sources, that play major role in weakening our psyche and slip ourselves in the mode societal corruption.
When people talk about neurological disorders, they consider only those disorders which exhibit visible symptoms (Autism, Phobias etc). For me, lack of integrity or moral perversion is also a neurological disorder, albeit silent one. It is getting diagnosed, only during harvesting time of past deeds of individual. And in most cases, it is never diagnosed during life time.
Corruption in society is resultant of polluted food origins. While working on correcting political system, it is equally important to see that majority of us, get nutritional food, both physical and mental.
Mental food by disinfecting Education system, physical food by disinfecting agriculture.
If you think you are sane citizen, contribute, in your capacity possible, for politics, education and agriculture.
With corrupted and weak psyche and body of majority in us, it is difficult to penetrate sane reformative ideas in our minds.
You go and explain, ideal democracy but if the other person is devoid of pure food and water, it is difficult for him being receptive and understand sane ideas necessary to change the Nation’s destiny from current shoddy state. Even if he/she understands, he/she won’t do much in action due to weak body and mind. For survival, compromises happen and saga of personal involvement in corruption continues.
Food -> Education -> Political awareness -> Critical Mass for change -> Revolution
Any upheaval, out of reaction, would remain temporary since roots are corrupt and in hibernation. With favorable environment to flourish, weakness will sprout again and reforms will topple again towards nadir.
If roots are replaces by food and education, it is difficult for any external force to break strong National fabric.
Political awareness minus Food and Education -> Revolution minus prolonged stability.
It is your self-denial that stops you embracing ageless local culture back in life routine and get benefits of health society. Self denial mode is a biggest road block created by modern education. Unfortunately for so called educated, anything out of text book is humbug and fake. For them, real experience and experiments don’t matter but staged lab results like fake clinical trials.
Break your comfort zone of self-denial and dare to live life as per local culture.
Free radicals are everywhere, in the air, our bodies, and the materials around us. They cause the deterioration of plastics, the fading of paint, the degradation of works of art, aging related illnesses, and can contribute to heart attacks, stroke and cancers.
Free radicals are molecules with unpaired electrons. In their quest to find another electron, they are very reactive and cause damage to surrounding molecules.
It is one of the reasons why we see rapid aging & imbecility in our youth.
Free of cost solution?
Gau seva and Gau Prasad
When Gau is revered like a mata and taken care like your own mother, she takes care of you like a son and bestows magical boons.
Gau mutra act as an agent of radical scavenging which captures free radicals and satiates there energy needs. A vast amount of circumstantial evidence implicates free radicals as the mediators of wide range of diseases including diabetes, ageing, cancer, etc. Gau mutra can cure all of them magically.
If we want to stop Cow slaughter, best way is not the Milk production but by establishing usage of all her various prasads including Gau mutra in our society.
Medicinal use of cow urine has been in practice since time immemorial in India. It is one of the ingredients in “Panchgavya”. Several medicinal properties of cow urine have been mentioned and in Indian tradition it is believed to have therapeutic properties. In the present investigation antioxidant activity of cow urine (fresh) and its distillate was evaluated using two in vitro models i.e. Total antioxidant activity by ABTS method and DPPH radical scavenging activity. Both cow urine and its distillate exhibited the antioxidant activity. The IC50 value for ABTS radical scavenging activity of fresh urine was found to be 69.39 μl/ml and that of urine distillate was 86.91μl/ml. IC50 value for free radical scavenging activity of fresh urine and its distillate was found to be 5.25 μl/ml and 7.37 μl/ml respectively. Comparatively cow urine was found to be better antioxidant than its distillate. This supports the claim of traditional practitioners. The revealed antioxidant property of cow urine and its distillate may provide potential therapeutic intervention against oxidative threats, both in healthy and disease conditions.
Yes, cowshed is the solution. I often prescribe friends and relatives to visit गौ शाला. गौ शाला is more than temple and beyond modern hospitals. I also suggest to avail milk and other prasad ( urine/dung) from only those गौ शाला where mother is kept happy! Like a mother and not as milk machine.
Let your growing child get frequent exposure to गौ शाला!
Some harsh reality:
Food allergies have increased about 50% in children since 1997.
I see children with diet restrictions. I see toddlers with long list of ‘No to eat’ list. This is the price we pay for disrespecting microbes, our friends, philosophers and guides.
Microbes can save growing epedemic of allergies. Respect them. Take care of them. Eat GUT-friendly food. Do not treat your body as gutter by eating anything and everything at anytime.
Include microbe-rich ghee, honey, dahi, butter-milk in regular diet.
There are various theories explaining why. One is that the 21st century lifestyle, which includes a diet very different from our ancestors’, lots of antibiotic use, and even a rise in cesarean section deliveries, has profoundly changed the makeup of microbes in the gut of many people in developed countries. For example, the average child in the United States has taken three courses of antibiotics by the time he or she is 2 years old, says Martin Blaser, an infectious disease specialist and microbiologist at New York University in New York City.
Here, I share two important articles to support my claim and unshakable faith on mother.
A gut microbe that stops food allergies
A class of bacteria commonly found in the guts of people—and rodents—appears to keep mice safe from food allergies, a study suggests. The same bacteria are among those reduced by antibiotic use in early childhood. The research fits neatly into an emerging paradigm that helps explain a recent alarming increase in food allergies and other conditions, such as obesity and autoimmune disease, and hints at strategies to reverse the trend.
In one of the latest efforts, Nagler’s team first confirmed that mice given antibiotics early in life were far more susceptible to peanut sensitization, a model of human peanut allergy. Then, they introduced a solution containing Clostridia, a common class of bacteria that’s naturally found in the mammalian gut, into the rodents’ mouths and stomachs. The animals’ food allergen sensitization disappeared, the team reports online today in the Proceedings of the National Academy ofSciences. When the scientists instead introduced another common kind of healthy bacteria, called Bacteroides, into similarly allergy-prone mice, they didn’t see the same effect. Studying the rodents more carefully, the researchers determined that Clostridia were having a surprising effect on the mouse gut: Acting through certain immune cells, the bacteria helped keep peanut proteins that can cause allergic reactions out of the bloodstream. “The bacteria are maintaining the integrity of the [intestinal] barrier,” Nagler says.
A probiotic consisting of Clostridia could be a new allergy therapy. For your surprise, Clostridia bacteria are found in abundance in cowshed! In fact, in all rustic places where humans live with animals! In cowshed, you are exposed to all healthy bacteria along with Clostridia which are not present with other animals.
So by chance if your child is treated with antibiotics ( which we must avoid! ), the best way to recover is to visit nearby Gau shala!! And take blessings of Gau mata!
A Cure for the Allergy Epidemic?
WILL the cure for allergies come from the cowshed?
Allergies are often seen as an accident. Your immune system misinterprets a harmless protein like dust or peanuts as a threat, and when you encounter it, you pay the price with sneezing, wheezing, and in the worst cases, death.
The working hypothesis is that innocuous cowshed microbes, plant material and raw milk protect farming children by favorably stimulating their immune systems throughout life, particularly early on. That spring morning, Dr. Holbreich gave me a tour of the bonanza of immune stimuli under consideration.
This research suggests that farming mothers might benefit from a naturally occurring immunotherapy, one that preprograms the developing fetus against allergic disease. Yet how to apply that therapy deliberately remains unclear. Is “microbial pressure” what matters — a stiff microbial wind in our sails? Or do certain cowshed microbes actually colonize farmers, and favorably calibrate their immune function?
Which brings us to farm milk. In Europe, the consumption of unpasteurized milk has repeatedly correlated with protection against allergic disease. In America, 80 percent of the Amish studied by Dr. Holbreich consume raw milk. In a study published earlier this year, Dr. Schaub’s group showed that European children who consumed farm milk had more of those regulatory T-cells, irrespective of whether they lived on farms. The higher the quantity of those cells, the less likely these children were to be given diagnoses of asthma. Here, finally, is something concrete to take off the farm.
Shocking right? 🙂 We deserve it for our sheer incompetence to respect mother nature and blind race for greed!
And can you imagine the impact? Whole plethora of mental disorders! Zombies everywhere!! Psychopaths and rapists! I am not trying to fear-monger! This will be harsh reality of near future! (And so be prepared! More than books, educate your kids for strength building! ) In fact, it is happening all around! Have you not seen increasing number of such psychopath(s) hijacking society?
Who will help?
Of course, गौ माता! (Desi cows with hump. Scientific name: Bos Indicus) 
गौ माता has Surya-Ketu Nadi in hump. It is this special feature that makes her different from other breeds. It is this नाड़ी that transforms प्राणशक्ति from प्राण दाता सूर्य भगवान् ! Vitamin D3, the gross and raw form of biological solar power is bonus!
Milk of Gau mata is full of DHA!
As per this research , DHA with D3 controls Brain Serotonin, Affecting Behavior and Psychiatric Disorders!
Here  , I already shared that serotonin in blood makes mother’s milk more nutritious!
Can you connect the dots?
Desi Gau ghee is full of DHA Docosahexaenoic acid. No other source can compete with the ghee produced by churning method from desi Gau mata’s ethically procured A2 milk. One more condition is that ghee has to be prepared during Sunrise (Vitamin D3). All this is not possible in dairy from where we get your ghee :).
We see increasing number of kids in hyper active mode. ADHD and ASD. Many clinical disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and depression share as a unifying attribute low brain serotonin.
Serotonin production and function is linked to vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids, suggesting one way these important micronutrients help the brain function and affect the way we behave.
If anyone in your circle is suffering from insomnia (can’t sleep), migraine, headache, you can try this experiment of Desi Gau ghee nasal drops. Make ghee lukeworm and apply 1-2 drops in both nasal passages before sleeping. Do it for 90 days.
PS: Before you try ghee from any gau shala, make sure that calf is given enough milk and milk is taken once calf is satiated for that session. There are no hormone used to increase production of milk. Place should be neat and clean. Cows must graze in open land for 3-4 hrs daily. Cows must get clean drinking water.
It is not advisable for:
1) Pregnant lady or during menses cycle
2) After bath, exercise, meal and intercourse.
I personally prefer before sleeping.
It Is bos indicus who will bless this land again with abundance of digested Prana (her prasad in form of dung, urine and milk). Not some reductionist D#, K, Ca etc but wholesome Prana! Prana that replenish the sick and timid!
Free pasture land for grazing is must for quality prasad! More she graze under sun-light, better would be her prasad (including D3!)
It is important and more cost-effective to imbibe digested Prana (Raw Prana passing through digestive track of mother cow. Churned Prana). When ghee is prepared, potency of digested prana increases manifold! Far far better than Vitamin D3 injections which are difficult to digest for body!
Freely grazing cows => Serotonin + Sun rays + DHA from grass => Quality milk, dung and urine!
Serotonin regulates a wide variety of brain functions and behaviors. Here, we synthesize previous findings that serotonin regulates executive function, sensory gating, and social behavior and that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and impulsive behavior all share in common defects in these functions. It has remained unclear why supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D improve cognitive function and behavior in these brain disorders. Here, we propose mechanisms by which serotonin synthesis, release, and function in the brain are modulated by vitamin D and the 2 marine omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Brain serotonin is synthesized from tryptophan by tryptophan hydroxylase 2, which is transcriptionally activated by vitamin D hormone. Inadequate levels of vitamin D (∼70% of the population) and omega-3 fatty acids are common, suggesting that brain serotonin synthesis is not optimal. We propose mechanisms by which EPA increases serotonin release from presynaptic neurons by reducing E2 series prostaglandins and DHA influences serotonin receptor action by increasing cell membrane fluidity in postsynaptic neurons. We propose a model whereby insufficient levels of vitamin D, EPA, or DHA, in combination with genetic factors and at key periods during development, would lead to dysfunctional serotonin activation and function and may be one underlying mechanism that contributes to neuropsychiatric disorders and depression. This model suggests that optimizing vitamin D and marine omega-3 fatty acid intake may help prevent and modulate the severity of brain dysfunction.—Patrick, R. P., Ames, B. N. Vitamin D and the omega-3 fatty acids control serotonin synthesis and action, part 2: relevance for ADHD, bipolar, schizophrenia, and impulsive behavior.
Consumption of non–cow’s milk beverages and serum vitamin D levels in early childhood
“Among children who drank both types of milk, each additional cup of non–cow’s milk beverage consumed was associated with a 5% decrease in 25-hydroxyvitamin D level,” the researchers write. The estimated was adjusted for clinically relevant variables, the authors note.
Interpretation: Consumption of non–cow’s milk beverages was associated with decreased serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels in early childhood. This association was modified by cow’s milk consumption, which suggests a trade-off between consumption of cow’s milk fortified with higher levels of vitamin D and non–cow’s milk with lower vitamin D content.
5 patents for cow urine. But colonial mindset of Indian physicians won’t allow to use this harmless medicine. Govt policies will never re-educate farmers to save Gau and seek her blessings for farming. It is now job of awakened citizens to reach out to farmer community, educate them and support them!
This is just a urine. All her blessings are super boons for society (Gobar, milk, ghee, dahi, butter milk)
Disappointed to see new govt’s dismal attention for such a critical issue i.e. conservation of Bos Indicus i.e. Indian Cow breeds i.e. Gau mata.
Here is the lab analysis of Gau mutra collected as per standard procedure (i.e. Desi pure breed, stress free living, enough grazing, good sleep)
Daily infusions with a chemical commonly associated with feelings of happiness were shown to increase calcium levels in the blood of Holstein cows and the milk of Jersey cows that had just given birth. The results, published in the Journal of Endocrinology, could lead to a better understanding of how to improve the health of dairy cows, and keep the milk flowing.
Demand is high for milk rich in calcium: there is more calcium in the human body than any other mineral, and in the West dairy products such as milk, cheese and yoghurt are primary sources of calcium. But this demand can take its toll on milk-producing cows: roughly 5-10% of the North American dairy cow population suffers from hypocalcaemia – in which calcium levels are low. The risk of this disease is particularly high immediately before and after cows give birth.
Hypocalcaemia is considered a major health event in the life of a cow. It is associated with immunological and digestive problems, decreased pregnancy rates and longer intervals between pregnancies. These all pose a problem for dairy farmers, whose profitability depends upon regular pregnancies and a high-yield of calcium-rich milk.
Now, when I read such research paper, I feel sick for the sheer reason that reductionist science only focus on physical aspects of well-being. And they test this by injecting love hormone. And the motive is nothing but to increase the good quality milk.
If you really take care of mother by loving her, worshiping her and providing her clean place to live, clean water to drink and enough freedom to graze pasture lands, she is naturally happy! And the result is observed, not only in her milk but also in her urine and dung! We really don’t need serotonin injections to treat her. That is greedy and short-sighted solution to increase the calcium. What is the use of calcium when there is no prana? Prana is nurtured by the love relations. You as a son and she as a mother.
