David frawley's Views on Indian Cows is Wrong

Vedacharya David Frawley - an American, has profound knowledge about  thousands of years old Vedas, Yoga and Ayurveda. From couple of years, I have learnt so much about my religion, from articles and books written by Vedacharya David Frawley. He is the founder of American Institute of Vedic Studies. To know more about this institute,

Vedacharya David Frawley was born in a christain family, but he became interested in Vedas and Yoga when in was a teenager. From past few decades, he has written many books about Hinduism, Ayurveda and Yoga. Today,  many Americans know about Vedas, Mantras, Meditation, Yoga and Ayurveda through Vedacharya David Frawley.

In June, 2015 Vedacharya David Frawley wrote an article, Ayurvedic Dairy: The Raw Story on Milk, Yogury and More in Yoga International. Vedacharya David Frawley writes, "In India the cow is allowed to give its milk to its calf first. Only the leftover milk, which is often considerable, is taken by humans." I strongly disagree with this statement. You can read the article here,

Today, India is the largest producer of milk because farmers use all kinds of tricks to extract maximum amount of milk from the innocent cows. I visit India frequently and I know the condition of Indian cows. In Indian villages, cows are induced with harmones to produce more milk. Milk is often mixed with chemicals and water. This is the reason many children are prone to gastroenteristis , and cancer in India.

Cows in India are suffering from past century. More than 100 years ago, Mahatma Gandhi took a vow not to consume cow's milk after he came to know about the cruel process, Phooka or Doom Dev.
Dada Vaswani, another great spiritual leader from India has stopped consuming milk and milk products after he came to know about the cruel condition of cows in dairy farms in India and across the world.

In the article, Vedacharya David Frawley , says "To really benefit from the deeper healing properties of dairy, raw milk is best." Actually, in Western countries, cow are slaughtered once they stop producing milk. Vedacharya David Frawley writes ,"Milk is an ideal rejuvenative food; it nourishes the mind and heart." I strongly feel that the " modern milk" is filled with Himsa (violence)

Vedacharya David Frawley is an expert on Vedas. Vedas mean "knowledge". Vedas also mean "Truth" .I hope Vedacharya David Frawley sees documentaries such as Earthlings and The Plastic Cow and become Vegan. In short, modern milk from United States to India and Australia to England is filled with Himsa(Violence).

Today is International Day of Non-violence

We must be the Change we wish to see in the World

October 2, is celebrated across the world as International Day of Non-violence. On this day, Mahatma Gandhi was born in 1869 in Porbandar, India.

Mahatma Gandhi was passionate about Non-violence. Using the power of Non-violence, Mahatma Gandhi - Leader of India's freedom struggle, brought independence to India.

In India, October 2 is a National Holiday. October 2 is celebrated as Gandhi Jayanthi.

Today, millions across the world are inspired by Mahatma Gandhi. Our world will be a better place, if everyone tries to follow atleast some of Mahatma Gandhi's teachings. Our society will be brimming with peace and harmony if we follow Mahatma Gandhi's principles...

I'm confident that Mahatma Gandhi would have thrived on plant-based diet (vegan diet), if he were alive today...

Here are some interesting websites to know more about the great person, M.K.Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi and Animals

To my mind the life of a lamb is no less precious than that of a human being. I should be unwilling to take the life of a lamb for the sake of the human body. I hold that the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man
                                                                        - Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi is a global icon, born in India more than a century ago. Today, the name Mahatma Gandhi is synonymous with  Non-violence. Honesty, Truth, Compassion, Hard Work, Kindness, and Non-violence were his virtues. Millions of people consider Mahatma Gandhi has their role model.

Mahatma Gandhi worked very hard for a peaceful society. Mahatma Gandhi wanted Human beings and animals to be happy. Nearly a century ago, in 1912 , Mahatma Gandhi vowed not to consume cow's milk after he learnt about a cruel procedure known as Phooka or Doom Dev.

Mahatma Gandhi was a Hindu and he had great regards for the sacred cow. Today, the cows in India are suffering so much. Indian farmers inject cows with oxytocin harmone to produce more milk. If Gandhi was alive, I'm sure Mahatma Gandhi would support the concept of vegan diet- plant based diet for the welfare of mankind.
