RSS affiliate Gauseva is set to launch a countrywide 15-day “Gau Jap Mahayagna” at temples across the country from March 31 to associate people with the organisation and spread awareness on cows and ensure their well-being. To attract people to the campaign, the RSS wing plans to popularise claims of eight major benefits of cow dung and other cow products.

Among the claims the outfit will make is that consumption of cow milk could reduce crime rate and consumption of the liquid extract of cow dung with leaves of basil (tulsi) during labour pain can help in normal delivery.

RSS Akhil Bharatiya Gau Sewa pramukh Shankar Lal claimed that the crime graph has risen in the country ever since people started consuming milk from buffaloes and jersey cows. “The reason is that milk of buffalo and jersey cow is ‘tamasic’ which triggers anger, a person loses tolerance and that leads to increase in crime. On the other hand, cow milk is ‘sattvic’ that gives peace to people and this leads to decrease in crime,” he said. He said creating awareness about this benefit of cow milk was aimed at achieving one of their goals — “apraadh mukt bharat (crime-free India)”.

Shankar Lal said he has communicated about benefits of cow milk to all state governments with an appeal to promote use of cow products.

The senior RSS functionary also claimed that in the past eight years, 3,000 women have delivered babies without surgery because they consumed around 40gm of liquid extract of cow dung with five leaves of basil at the time of labour pain. Shankar Lal claimed that normal delivery occurred within two hours of consumption of the cow dung extract with basil leaves. He also claimed that if a pregnant woman consumes curd “prepared from cow milk in silver bowl daily for eight months, the baby will be of fair complexion, intelligent and with sattvic nature” He said that many such researches were on at the Cow Research Centre in Nagpur.

Shankar Lal said these “benefits” of cow products will be spread among masses when they are approached to join “Gau Jap Mahayagna”. He said the yagna will be aimed at increasing members in the outfit and during its course, people will be appealed to take a daily pledge for protection of cows.

    That is the reason India remain backward. Evenif cow dung and is good - RSS should try to set up a research ins ute and show it to world. Without any proof - we make ourself a laughing stock to the world (evenif it has merit). Just 2 days back we read Uma Bharti visiting AIIMS for medical treatment - Would Uma / RSS explain to public why Uma bharati is visiting AIIMS and not resorting gow mutra? This BJP-RSS etc has one rule for themselves and another set for public.

      These people are out of their minds. There is no scientific evidence anywhere that would validate those insane claims.

        Definitely smearing ones body with a mixture of holy dung of Cow Mata and her holy will increase vitality , energy and improve health and well-being. I have been doing this for the past 4 years . Only downside is that i was fired from my job due to the bad smell. Also , my wife left me immediately after marriage , and she ran away with some SICKular , leftist JNU professor . I hope she becomes a widow soon.

          Certainly India is going to Stone age ideology, that is very bad for the progress of the country and the people. This fascist ideology must be forcefully stop by sober minded Hindus.

            The pivotal issue in this whole business of 'veneration of the cow' has never been addressed. The fact is that no one so far, in the government or in the justice system has offered any doctrinal proof regarding 'holiness of the cow', and they all have taken sides with the holiness of the animal. The Hindu scriptures clearly offer evidence that this is not true. Slaughter of animals and consumption of flesh including the bovine species has been part and parcel of the Vedic culture. the Rig veda, Manu smriti, Yagnavalkya smriti, Apastamba prsna, Apastham Grihasutra, Vashistha Dharmasutra, Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, Aitereya Brahmin, they all sanctify the slaughter and consumption of cattle including the cow. Adi Sankaracharya’s commentary on Brihadaranyakopanishad, VI, 4, 18 sanctifies beef-eating. Dr. Pandurang Vaman Kane has pointed that the Bajsancyi Samhita sanctifies beef-eating because of its purity. (Dharmashastra Vidhar Marathi, p. 180). The ban on cow slaughter is unsubstantiated

              You have read these points from the translated versions done by western scholas and also some left oriented Scholars of India. Cow slaughter or for that matter slaughter of any animals is banned in Vedas. There is a particular verse in Vedas which says that those people who slaughter the cows must be shot dead. The trouble with the scholars who have translated theVedas etc giving credence to slauther of cows is due to the fact that none of them have studied the Vedas in the light of Six tools that helps to understand the meaning of the Mantras. In so far as Manusmirthi is concerned it is heavily interpolated in as much as 40 are totally corrupted and written during those times when India under the spell of dark ages. If you are sincere to understand to know Vedas vis-a-vis cow slaughter then try to read the book " Light of Truth" written by Swami Dayanand, the founder of Aryasamaj. His translations of Vedas have acquired world wide recognition.

                Saffron's say those who follow Vedas are Hindus, in that case all those billions who are consuming Fish, Poultry and other animal products are not Hindus.All fishermen across India are from Hindu Communities so are Tribals. What about Lord Shiva who is adorning leopard skin and Rama running with Bow and arrow after Golden Deer.Not to forget the Great Kali who is offered Blood and loves blood

                  You have not read the Vedas and stop blaming the translations on the west. If there is a particular verse then please give it to us but of course you cannot find it because it does not exist! The entire ban on meat comes from the Jain religion not Hindu!

                    This is why half-baked knowledge is even more dangerous than ignorance. Yes, some Vedic scriptures mentioned about Go-medh yagna, which western Indologist translated into cow-sacrifice and concluded that after the yagnas, the meat was consumed by the Rishis, especially by Yagnavalkya. But, Vedic sanskrit is the most archaic than classical Sanskrit, and only available with proper intonation through some Vedic scholar from unbroken lineage. Even Swami Vivekananda admitted that and that's why Vedic study was forbidden in earlier times in masses because of possible wrong interpretations.

                      The passages of beef-eating in Vajasanehi Samhita and Brihadaranyaka Upanishads can be translated with multiple meanings without the use of Cow, bovine or beef. Many Vedic scholars such as Dayanand Saraswati, Rishi Aurovinda, Chinmaya Mission have done it. Even if I agree the western Indologist that Beef was consumed in Vedic era, still it is not permitted in current Kaliyug era as per AtharvaVed and Purana

                          The wrong interpretations are what is happening now. Western translations do not change the facts of what is written! Beef is good for you and your body! Cow and dung is not!

                            Vedic sanskrit is not named as archaic Sanskrit, it is "Prakrit'. Swami Vivekananda most certainly mentioned beef-eating by Hindus in his "Lectures from Colombo to Almora" (Advaita Ashram, 1997, in Reply to the welcome address at Madurai, 1897), and this is not a translation by 'western indologists'.

                            Your comment is PURE nonsense.Why do some people keep falsely quoting puranas and vedas to justify eating Beef ? Let me spell this out for you - Puranas , Vedas ....etc are IRRELEVANT ! Hinduism is not static like the abrahamic religions of the middle-east . We have culturally evolved to abhor the slaughter and consumption of beef , plain and simple . If m slems can claim to be offended by mere mickey mouse cartoons , why can't Hindus legitimately claim to be offended by the slaughter of innocent and helpless cows ? India was an agrarian society for millenia , Cows are no different than pet animals for us . In the west , they are horrified by the deaths of pet cats , d0gs and horses . We just added one more pet animal to that list .

                              Once more the truth does not matter but made up by the Jains makes more sense. If cows were pets then why are they running loose all over India starving and eating garbage?

                                Finally a person with brains tells the truth about the insanity of cow worship! People read your ancient texts specifically the ones mentioned above to learn the truth. There is nothing wrong with eating beef as a Hindu or any other religion!
