Do you want to ground yourself so you’re able to eliminate built-up stress and focus better? There’s nothing like being close to cows and experiencing the natural lifestyle.
They had a wonderful retreat on the farm, watching cows being milked and experiencing the natural country lifestyle. Seen in this picture among others in the middle are Jai & Syama, who head the Yoga program at the Bhakti center.
Being with cows grounds us and brings tranquility – puts you as close to Mother Nature as possible.. You feel happy, and at ease..
Milk from cows that are protected is the best source of healthy nutrition. What does this mean?
In most milk farms today, cows after being exploited for milk in a very harsh environment are destined for more cruel treatment and eventually slaughtered for meat. This provides an extremely negative environment – animals are able to sense where they’re headed and based on how they’re treated, this releases harmful toxins into their blood, which permeates into the milk that they are forced to provided. Also, due to very aggressive milking techniques, sometimes blood seeps into the milk collected. Most vegans refrain from consuming milk due to these reasons.
So is all milk bad for you?
On the contrary, at this farm and others similar to it, cows are nourished with love, great fodder & good care overall. This results in excellent milk being produced and the cows give with love. When we consume such milk, we get the best nutrition and it reflects on our health and mood. Good milk helps provide nourishment to the finer brain tissues as per scientific research. Some refer to such milk as “ahimsa” or non-violent milk. Gita Nagari provides this kind of milk.
Incoming… cow! One of the cows here wanted to get up close & warm when a picture was being taken, adding to the fun!
