For thousands of years yogis in India thrived on fresh
cow's milk and fruits.Fresh milk was consumed raw. For
me, when I think of yogi's food fresh milk and fruits
come to my mind.
Milk is considered to be the most nutritious food on
the earth by the yogis. Yogis hold cow's milk in high
esteem , as cows are sacred animals to the hindus.
Yogis and gurus in ashrams across India still consider
milk to be the most nutritious food. Of course, most
of the ashrams also keep cows and look after them well
for many years, even after the cows no longer produces
milk. Some ashrams also have goshalas, where
abandoned and aged cows are cared for.
I guess Indians consider cow's milk to be very healthy
food because of the yogis and gurus who sometimes
consumed only milk for their daily food.No wonder that
most of the Indian vegetarians are lacto-vegetarians.
