Panch Gavya Treatment
Panchagavya: The five basic products which we get from Cows are called Panchagavya. They are the Milk, the Curd, the Ghee, the Dung and the Urine of the Cow. These elements have the power to cure many diseases. It actually balances the three dosas or faults or ailments in the body i.e., bile, air, and mucus (pitta, vata, kapha). The medicines are the combination of these five basic elements and other medicinal herbs.
Vedas (scriptures) are the source of Indian culture. Vedas are eternal. Ayurveda is the branch of Vedas, which deals with holistic aspects of health. Health means physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing too. In Ayurveda the importance of cow and its products are described in great detail.
Cow, as 'Kamdhenu' is the fulfiller of all desires. "matrah sarva bhutanam, gavah sarv sukh prada", Meaning, the cow being mother of all living entities gives all pleasures to everyone. Amongst urines, cow urine is best. In Ayurveda where ever urine is mentioned, it is to be understood as cow urine. Statements of scriptures confirm this. Cow is our mother and we are her children. Therefore cow urine is beneficial. Cows have symbiotic relationship with human beings. There are seven mothers listed in scriptures. They are......
dhenur dhatri tatha prthvi saptaita matarah
Meaning: Real mother and guru-patni, the wife of spiritual master or teacher. brahmani, the wife of a brahmana, and raja-patnika, the queen. Dhenu, the cow, dhatri, nurse, as well as the earth. Earth is mother because she is giving us so many things, fruits, flowers, grains for our eating. Mother gives for eating and also milk, cow gives us milk. So cow is also one of our mothers. These seven are our mothers.
All the demigods reside in the body of a Cow. She is receiver of the auspicious rays from all heavenly constellations. Thus she contains influences of all constellations. Wherever there is a cow, there is influence of all heavenly constellations; blessings of all gods. Cow is the only divine living being that has a Surya Ketu Nadi (vein connected to sun) passing through her backbone. Therefore the cow's milk, butter and ghee have golden hue. This is because Surya ketu Nadi, on interaction with solar rays produces gold salts in her blood. These salts are present in the cow's milk and cow's other bodily fluids which miraculously cures many diseases.
prasnat panchgavyasya dahasagnirivendhnam
Meaning: From skin to bones, what ever sins (diseases) are in my body, are destroyed by panchagavya just as fire destroys fuel.
Note: For best effects use only products taken from indigenous cows (Pure Indian Breed Cows). It is available in all parts of the world. For example, in our Bhaktivedanta Swami Goshala (cow protection farm), ISKCON, Vrindavan we have above 150 cows, but from them we are using only 18 pure Indian Breed Cows for medicinal purposes by taking their products). If pure Indian Breed cows are not available, then you can use the products of other cows.
There are two forms of Cow Urine. One is called Go-Ark (Cow Urine Distillate) Cow urine is boiled and the vapor is collected (process is called distillation) to make cow urine distillate for oral intake. Then the other form of it is Ganavati or the tablet form. We are going to deal mainly with cow urine in this seminar. In ancient days in India people were using Panchgavya products as medicines, but now it is unknown to most of the population.
Mostly this is used to reduce the cholesterol in the blood and to decrease the excess weight. It can be easily given to children in cough and other diseases. In homes it can be prepared even by using a pressure cooker. Removing whistle part of cooker and attach a tube there (coil the tube 3-4 times to cool the vapor down). It can be prepared using a kettle nozzle for outlet of vapor. Then the vapor should be taken through tube to the collection pot.

In Ayurveda (Medical Science of scriptures) it is said that the main cause of disease is the imbalance of three elements Air (Vata), Bile (Pitta), Mucous (kapha). Cow urine balances these three elements, 'Samya dosharogata' meaning when three elements are balanced there are no diseases.

If the cow is medically fit then we can use it. But the Indian pure breed cows have immunology power from 90% to 98% but other mixed breed cows are under 40%. In foreign countries also we can get pure breed Indian cows. One of the symptoms of pure breed is that it has a beautiful hump on its back and the other is that it has a long hanging neck, it comes in a single color and not with mixed colors.
1. First preference is Pure Indian Breed Cows which has more than 90 % to 98 % immunology power grown in a natural atmosphere. It can come up to 103% also.
2. Second preference is the same as above, but had been grown up in city atmosphere like the cow protection farm, Goshala etc.
3. Third is buffalo.
4. Fourth is Jersey cow (mixed breed which are seen widely all over the world) which has 35-37 % immunity power.
5. Fifth are other animals like goats etc.
The above research data is the reason why we use only indigenous cows for taking medicines. But we have to adjust to the situation where we live. There is a saying,
