Hare Krishna Prabhuji, Your articles on cows are very inspiring. In one of your article you had advised us to avoid the usage of bottled water or reverse osmosis water. However, one of the acquaintance, I came across did not agree to this point. He argued that nowadays water is very much contaminated and contains huge quantities of calcium, magnesium and many other salts. He proved it by showing a meter which indicates the level of contamination of the water. Meter shows that purified water has 30ppm salts whereas ground water has 900ppm salts. He further added that safe drinking water should have salts content of around 150ppm. He mentioned that if ppm level is more, it causes jaundice and other waterborne diseases. Is it true? Also please explain how does adding cow dung ash make the water pure? Awaiting for your reply. Read the rest of this entry »

Hare Krishna Prabhuji,


I do not want to miss an opportunity to glorify mother Cow. I have been lucky serving ISKCON Project from past 8years. Just 5-6 years ago, when our Pune New Temple Project started, there were many marathons for fund raising; even I extended my seva neglecting my health.. Late nights, irregular eating times, not drinking water throughout the day, as a result I slowly started getting skin infections. It first developed on back of my neck. There was severe itching, later it started appearing on my hands as well.

As usual, I approached a skin specialist (Allopathy) doctor experimented with different medicines but with no proper cure. Instead it created more body heat which resulted into pimples on my face.  After 3-4 months I realised that this Doctor is experimenting different medicines on me. Moreover Doctor agreed that he was not able to understand what’s happening?  Later I started taking Ayurvedic Medicines – Khada, tablets, however nothing worked. Read the rest of this entry »

Devil in the Milk: Illness, Health, and the Politics of A1 and A2 Milk


Posted by Madan Gopal Das | Posted in Ayurvedic Health, General Health Advice, Vedic Lifestyle | Posted on 24-03-2012


This groundbreaking work is the first internationally published book to examine the link between a protein in the milk we drink and a range of serious illnesses, including heart disease, Type 1 diabetes, autism, and schizophrenia.

These health problems are linked to a tiny protein fragment that is formed when we digest A1 beta-casein, a milk protein produced by many cows in the United States and northern European countries. Milk that contains A1
beta-casein is commonly known as A1 milk; milk that does not is called A2.

All milk was once A2, until a genetic mutation occurred some thousands of years ago in some European cattle. A2 milk remains high in herds in much of Asia, Africa, and parts of Southern Europe. A1 milk is common in the United States, New Zealand, Australia, and Europe. Read the rest of this entry »

Comparison of Pricing of Modern vs. Vedic Ghruta (Ghee)

Comparison: pricing of ghruta (ghee) made by correct process and by modern process.

Ghee made properly will be costly compared to so call ghee available in market today. The current rates of ingredients dated 15th Jan 2011 are being used for calculation. Pure and correctly made ghee will cost at least Rs 900 per kg. This is because the cost price of this ghruta is Rs. 800 per kg. So the farmer and supplier get only Rs 100 per kg as profit.

Ghee made by other process will cost around Rs 250 – 350 per Kg. Cost of manufacturing this cream ghee is at the most Rs 50 per kg and manufacturer (mostly some big corporate) is making profit of Rs 200 – 250 per kg. We can clearly estimate the cheating by modern corporate’s and the honesty by real ghruta makers. This will be clear as you read on.
