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, http://vedanet.com/
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).
