Cows were blessed with the powers of the divinities (Pure Cow ka Cola, Aug 17) when they were delivered to the sage Vashishtha. When Vishwamitra visited Vashishtha, the divine cow helped to feed the king and his coterie, and to defeat him when he started a fight. It prompted the king to go austere, to become a rishi himself, to apperceive the gayatri mantra too! The buffalo, on the other hand, was a symbol of offence, of the asura type. The most monstrous of demons took the form of Mahishasura (buffalo-demon) and was killed by the cosmic mother, Durga. But then, demon-minded anti-Hindu, anti-divinity scholars like Kancha Ilaiah are fond only of the buffalo.
Its a fact that Colas are bad for health..Also dont understand why author is against the selling of products..If she has any issues she can go to consumer forum or any other agencies and seek redreesal rather than writing crap..The hidden agenda is to target hindu community & its practices...
Cow's urine collected as it urinates and taken just about two tea spoons may be beneficial in curing cancer and also constipation. And for sure it cures constipation.
But cow urine as it has been sold is actually the vapour of cow urine collected after boiling it. I have doubts about medicinal property because at boiling temparature all the vitamins and enzymes contained in cow urine are destroyed except iron and copper iones in it. Since cow urine can not be stored without spoiling it, these companies have devised these methods ,including adding of tulsi and other herbals.
Cow urine can reduce fertility among men ( by reducing sperm motility ) and it can contain harmful microbes , so the dosage should be less than a tablespoon.
