Forward it to 3:27 and listen to what the Hinduism says about why we worship the cow.

Personal thoughts —

I believe Hindus don’t eat the Cow because we attribute it to the mother.

Think about it… when the mother can’t give milk to the baby — it has to come from the cow. It is also a baby’s, our (Mankind’s) first staple of food.

Cow products are used for nourishment — example, Ghee, butter, butter milk, curd. And cheese.

People in India, even use cow dung to build their homes.

That is why we Hindus don’t eat the cow and believe it should not be killed.

I personally don’t have anything against a person who eats the cow, it does not change the fact they are with you on this planet earth to experience the same fate that each of us has in store for us.

I believe your consciousness and eyes works very differently when you do not eat the cow.

The cow is sacred to Hindus. The Nandi’s are the cows that symbolize and is the vehicle of Shiva.

I also have read somewhere online that cow and calf may have been considered scared animals in the bible also, for people who have an altar at their homes.

About Iksvakave

I am on a quest to understand my religion --- Hinduism. I have decided to keep a log of my discoveries, and experiences and what I have come to learn in the process. I like to travel through people vicariously. To observe the working of the mind, body and spirit. And heart. The soul infact is what our bodies have and what we are ultimately or in the end! The pricelessness of the soul is a soul is only potentially divine. Our journey here is therefore to understand that divinity in our lives. The ideals of societies, language, culture religion, and spirituality, is what interests me. what we know and don't know and outside of our four walls, maybe the priceless truth of that journey here on earth also, our yoga to be learned and equally perfected in life. What this blog is about is the values of the mother tongue India. And the values and culture of India and my nationality America. Pricelessness of it one will come to know you see. The forehead, is the center of the Hindu conscious.
