Cow urine a rare gift for mankind; enhances longevity, cures diseases: Govt body’s reference document
Rashtriya Kamdhenu Aayog’s latest suggestions on treatment of diseases have been made as part of ‘reference material’ for the first ‘cow science promotion exam’, to be held online on February 25
The Cow Commission of India, officially known as Rashtriya Kamdhenu Aayog (RKA), has released a document claiming that a number of diseases like psoriasis, skin disorders, eczema, arthritis, inflammation and leprosy, among others, can be treated by consuming ‘Panchgavya’ products — cow milk and its derivatives as well as cow urine and dung.
The commission, constituted in 2019 under the aegis of the Ministry of Animal Husbandry and Fisheries, aims at ensuring the conservation, preservation, protection and development of cows and their progeny, and is tasked with giving direction to cattle development programmes.
The RKA’s latest suggestions on treatment of diseases have been made as part of ‘reference material’ for the first ‘cow science promotion exam’, to be held online on February 25 among nationwide school and college students as well as the general public, according to a report carried by The Print.
According to the 54-page document, ‘gaumutra’ or cow urine acts as an antidote for phlegm, abdominal diseases, eye diseases, bladder diseases, lumbar, respiratory diseases, inflammation, and liver diseases, among others.
“Panchgavya taken daily by an individual can keep a person healthy and hearty. Dreaded diseases like psoriasis, any skin disorders, eczema, split wound heal very fast upon consumption of Panchgavya,” reads the reference material for the exam.
While the exam will be voluntary, the RKA has sent written requests to the chief ministers and education ministers of all states to hold the test, according to RKA chairman Vallabhbhai Kathiria.
The document highlights the medicinal value of Indian cows’ milk, stressing that it increases “brain power” and “enhances immunity”.
Terming cow urine as a rare gift to mankind, the document says, “If there is any ‘Sanjivani’ in Ayurved, then it is Gaumata Urine. Cow urine is great elixir, proper diet, pleasing to heart, the giver of mental and physical strength, enhances longevity. It removes all blood disorders.”
The reference material even argues that cow urine is as pious as Ganga Jal, sacred water for Hindus that is used in all the festivities throughout the year. “The ingredients found in Ganga Jal and gaumutra are much similar. No other animal or human beings mutra has so many ingredients as our Gaumata,” it says.
