The amazing power of cow’s milk and the amazing usefulness of live cows.

Over the last few days, my 2 litres coagulating / curdling cow’ s milk burst the plastic bottle. It literally pierced the plastic or more accurately cause the plastic to separate by the pressure resulting from the coagulation. This means some gasses are produced in the process. The chemical student will be able to explain this process scientifically and give us the name of the gaz (gasses) that is / are produced. This is incredible! Cow’s milk is stronger than the plastic bottle that contains it. Or was it just a bad quality plastic bottle? We shall never know. Or perhaps we shall anyway.

Of course, I lost half the whey. But no mess was created, as the whole thing happened within a plastic crate. So only easy crate clean up was required. Contrary to popular belief, strongly supported by the white good industry, there is no need for refrigeration to conserve both yogurt and milk, as both can very well be consumed in their different stages of development. The last batch of yogourt lasted from April 29th to May 23th i.e. 24 days in my Sankirtan van. No refrigeration whatsoever. The last yogourt on May 23 was just fine. Adding a little honey will help us overcome the bitter taste of coagulated milk and still make a delicious breakfast mixed with cia seeds, honey, oats and some fruit. I certainly don’t have or need a refrigerator in my Sankirtan Book Distribution Toyota van but cowmilk products are definitely the staples of my diet. Neither do we, Hare Krishnas, required to be vegan. As Srila Prabhupada said: “Lord Krishna requires His milk.” But we do need to fight strongly for the protection of the poor, defenseless, ill-treated but wonderful and affectionate cows. The cow is one of the seven mothers. Killing the cow is almost tantamount to killing one’s own mother and father when they get old and need special care. We do not hesitate to kill the child in the womb, why not kill our old frail and unproductive parents as well? It makes sense, does it not? (sarcastic mood). Sometimes it happens and as Kali-yuga develops over a span of 432 000 years, of which we have traveled only a tiny 5000 years, it will get much worse. One day in Armidale, NSW, on my book distribution travels and activities, I met a young lady, twenty to thirty years old.  We were talking about the power of the Hare Krishna pocket cookbook publication “The Higher Taste” and its power to transform people into vegetarians. And bought a book as well. She told me her own story as follows: She was working on a “cattle farm” and developed an attachment for a particular calve. She actually felt some affection for that particular calve and indeed the calve reciprocated. After some days she noticed that the calve was missing. She brought up the subject matter at table during a meal and asked: “What happened to that friendly calve?” The reply came in the form: “You are eating it right now!” And that made her a vegetarian on the spot. All glories to her compassion and determination!   

In India, the yogurt seller is a familiar sight. The yogurt is contained in a big black wok on the merchant’s bench and the flies are fighting for a taste and tiny bit of it but are being steadily repulsed by the fan of the merchant.

Here are three relevant quotes by Srila Prabhupada, the Founder-Acarya of the Hare Krishna movement and Founder of the BBT and BTG magazine.

The cow is the most wonderful animal and she is so beneficial for human society, giving so many gifts in the form of milk products. And you can turn all those milk products into wonderful preparations to offer to Radha-Krsna and thus your life will become perfect.” 741217let.Parvati

If you give the right protection to the cows, then they will give so much milk, that the ground of New Vrndavana will be muddy with milk. European and American civilization will be finished on account of this sinful activity of killing the cows.” 750531let.Kirtanananda

I am glad also that you have a new gosala. Let other farms see what is our behavior for the cows and how we derive benefit from them and that will be the living example to persons who are using cow flesh rather than cow milk.” 751110let.Kirtanananda

Live cows are the basis of a peaceful civilization. In fact, the cows are the emblem of peace. And if we savage the cow, emblem of peace, as we are doing now, then how can peace be established and conserved? It is not possible.  

SB 1.12.26

‘As will be clear in the chapters ahead, Mahäräja Pariksit wanted to kill the personified Kali, who was attempting to kill a cow, the emblem of peace and religion. The symptoms of Kali are (1) wine, (2) women, (3) gambling and (4) slaughterhouses. Wise rulers of all states should take lessons from Mahäräja Pariksit in how to maintain peace and morality by subduing the upstarts and quarrelsome people who indulge in wine, illicit connection with women, gambling and meat-eating supplied by regularly maintained slaughterhouses. In this Age of Kali, regular license is issued for maintaining all of these different departments of quarrelsome people. So how can they expect peace and morality in the state? The state fathers, therefore, must follow the principles of becoming wiser by devotion to the Lord, by chastising the breaker of discipline and by uprooting the symptoms of quarrel, as mentioned above. If we want blazing fire, we must use dry fuel. Blazing fire and moist fuel go ill together. Peace and morality can prosper only by the principles of Mahäräja Pariksit and his followers.”

As long as the cows are being slaughtered by the millions, we should definitely not expect peace (or health for that matter) in human society, as a matter of karmic reactions. It’s just like having a brother or a sister who is a bit of a simpleton. But your father, before his departure, has clearly instructed you to take good and kind care of this handicapped sibling. But you, with your devious and deceitful mentality, have resented this burden of love since the beginning and are actually harboring in your mind a clever plan to rid yourself of him / her. And one day you actually execute your plan. You may evade the state police but the laws of karma are infallible and are more sophisticated than the most sophisticated computers. There will be no escape from the laws of karma! The mundane laws of the various states will condemn you to many years of jail detention, if not life detention for your cowardly crime. Some states will actually condemn you to die. In accordance with the laws a Manu, the ancient Indian law book for the whole of mankind, a cold-blooded murderer deserves state-administered death, despite the speculation of mundane speculators and wranglers to the contrary. That is his / her actual benefit. That will allow him to start his next life with a clean slate. In conclusion, we may say clearly that cows are more useful alive than dead and that THIS CIVILIZATION IS A NON SENSE, CHILD-IN-THE-WOMB KILLING and DEMONIAC CIVILIZATION. And we may say it as many times as the number of cows that are being mercilessly slaughtered. That is to say, we may say it millions and millions of times.
