Extracts from the booklet
Gow in Sanskrit is Cow in English. Gow through time became Gau. Gau further became Go. A + U becomes O grammatically. The three basic sounds relating to Cow are Gow, Gau and Go.
The seed sound G stands for movement. A stands for First Lagos, U stands for Second Logos. The sound Gau or Go is therefore considered to be the composite energy movement of Will, Love and Knowledge. Worship of Cow is considered beneficial for this reason.
The Cow, the Mother of splendour, the Drink of immortality and the Tree of fulfilment have all emerged at the same time in the creational process and are considered to be most splendorous embodiments of divinity. These four are called in Sanskrit Kamadhenu (Cow), Kalpavruksha (Tree of fulfilment), Amruta (the Drink of immortality) and Lakshmi (the Goddess of splendour).
The secretions for formation of the seven planes of existence emerge from Kamadhenu and the related formation of creation is therefore considered by the Vedic seers as the form of Cow.
Experience in creation by the beings of any plane is again considered as experience of the milk of that plane. And those who experience the seven planes know the Cow in its complete form.
In Cow the Vedic seers located 33 Devas (The gist along with the related limbs of the Cow is given as annexure).
The Cow milk, Cow yogurt, Cow ghee (clarified butter), Cow excrete and Cow urine are considered most sacred for varieties of purposes including medicinal purposes.
Among the Cows coffee coloured (almost black) is considered most sacred. These cows are called Kapilas.
Moon in Taurus is the Cow, Sun in Taurus is the Bull and Mercury in Taurus is Calf. Taurus has much to do with the family of Cow.
The central star of Orion, Aldebaran (Rohini) sends special rays via Taurus through Sun whose embodiment on Earth is Bull. Through Moon the star Rohini sends the rays in Taurus whose embodiment on Earth is the Cow. Likewise, the rays of Rohini via Mercury in Taurus give birth to Calf.
Lord Krishna whose birth moon is in Rohini was known to be Gopala, the ruler of the Cow principle. Throughout his life there was not a single day where he did not serve the Cow.
Cow (Kamadhenu), White Elephant (Iravatha), White Swan and White Eagle find place anywhere in the heaven, and hence are sacred.
Among the above only Cow is worshipped even in the heaven. The Devas also worship Cow to fulfil their purposes.
Worship of Cow and Bull is equivalent to worship of Parents, Pitris and Devas.
Any place gets purified if the place is sprinkled with waters mixed in Cow dung.
Even in places where horrible acts happened such as murders and other atrocities could be restored to purity if a group of Cows are made to reside therein for three days and three nights.
Devotional songs sung on Cow, donation of Cows, early morning darshan of Cows bring much luck to human beings.
Where a Cow stays agitated, hungry, thirsty or frightened there humans meet with excessive conflicts leading to unhappiness.
Where the Cows live peacefully enjoying food and drink where its breath remains rhythmic due to the poise, there the negative energies are warded off.
If one wishes to fulfil himself he should offer food and drink to the Cow or to a Saint before he drinks and eats.
Protection of Cow clears impediments on the way of life.
Worship of and service to Cow would bestow the ability to regulate senses.
If one arranges treatment to a sick Cow to restore it to health the Cow reciprocates to restore health to the one.
If one protects Cow from fear, he transcends from the fear he suffers from.
When difficulties surround man and when he finds himself in un-surmountable difficulties worship and service to Cow helps clearing the way.
The one who hurts and kills the Cow would eventually suffer and would not be able to surmount suffering.
When you find a Cow hungry and thirsty, do not neglect to attend to it.
Killing a Cow denies one the path to the Divine.
As long as man mishandles Cow so long he suffers on Earth and he would not find way to the super mundane world.
Persons who kill Cows, eat Cow meat and those who support these two acts would suffer innumerable lives of sorrow.
Natural wealth is more valuable than material wealth. Amidst the natural wealth, holding and serving the Cow is considered most precious wealth.
Service and worship to Cow establishes one in the quality of poise (sattva) ‑ a quality that enables ascent into higher planes of existence.
