Ms. Mayawati, Chief Minister, U.P.
Your Government has issued licenses for establishment of new slaughter houses in the state of Uttar Pradesh. I believe that the complete facts have not been given to you on the issue else you would have not given your approval. Therefore, I would like to put some concern before you:
No economic benefits can be derived by killing of innocent animals by the people or the Govt except the Company, which is involved. I would rather say that your Government can earn 5-10 times more benefits by the conservation of these creatures of the God in comparison to export of their meat (kindly analyze the data release by Central Statistical Organisation, GOI, 2009) . Cattle are the life line of villagers, they give milk, dung for fuel, manure for farming, and transportation for villagers, conservation of environment etc. They are useful in many other ways.
Moreover, slaughterhouses are big threat to the environment. The whole world has accepted this fact and moving towards greener path and adopting vegetarian die to control Global warming. Many nations have started closing of slaughter houses; India is the land of Mahavira, Gautam Buddha, Ram-Krishna, who taught us the lesson of Ahimsa. Jain Munishri Maitriprabh Sagarji is on his Fast unto death at Baraut, Baagpat since last 16 DAYS in protest of licenses to new slaughter houses, you should be aware. I am aware that you have great respect towards sadhus and Indian culture of Ahimsa/jeevdaya.
We request you to look into the matter and ask the concerned department to reconsider their decision and withdraw it. Please cancel the new licenses of slaughter houses with immediate effect. I am sure that your stand to promote Ahimsa/Jeevdaya will bring you greater support and honour from the Aam Aadmi.
JAIN SAMAJ, KAUSHAMBI & VAISHALI,
Cow has to be feeded first roti in every hindu house. It is said doing so destroys sins, gives wealth, fortune fame etc. Jaina texts say giving cow first roti gives 100 types of sukh to the person. 33 crore devidevatas have place in cow.
One cow of indian breed can only do mracles which 1000 jerseys cant do.my experience). Couples not having child if they feed cow empty stomach in morning for one year and ask for child can get one. its because of cow killing that women dont bear child.
Killing a cow brahmin caste and snake is the henioust sin in world according to shastras. you must have seen foriengers having red eruptions on skin its because of beef. red meat causes various diseases as compared to normal meat (which also causes diseases) just see how many medicines non-vegs take.
cows meat lasts for 11 days so it is prefered for killing and is secretly mixed by butchers, hotels etc for money madness parlysis, defunct bones is because of sin of cow killing.
ravans only dosha was that despite begin pustalya rishis vansaj is he killed cows and saints. thats why lord Ram killed him(Vipra, dhenu, sant hit lej dev avtar).
Krishanji siddi is not possible without cow. He was a cowheard. Gowardhan and gavalas are respected in indian caste system because they were the clan in which Krishanji took avtar. On gopatami and gopdwadshi gavalas(cowheards) are given honoured with malas, tilak, maoney, clothes.
In diwali cow dung is worshipped for laxmi. agnihotra, panchgavya is incomplete without cow milk, curd, cow urine dung. cow urine fresh if sprinkled within 30 min destroys ghosts in house . cow urine cures many diseases
In our history Mahraj dilip of Raguvansha offered his body to a lion to save a cow. are we so despicable that we treat cow as a animal . remember cow ganga are mothers mother.
Muslim countries meat eating is allowed not beacuse of qurbani or nabis orders that cow goat can be used as food. but beacuse of a simple logic that arabs didnt have food, crops it was desert so it was must in past to eat meat. So qurbani was just a food culture.You can get mangos, basmati in UAE, Arab , USA, UK as transport is easy now so avoid cow and any meat. krishna the supreme yogi has said in bhagavat gita that tamasic food is meat,
wine , drugs etc.
Its sorry that modern education is destroying our faith. tommorow if one tells to kill your mother will you kill her. no.isnt it.
feeding saving cows gives beauty, wealth, fame, good looking husband wife good sanakari children.
(courtesy "Astha TV: Please see "Gau Katha" by "Gopal Maniji" for these knowledge and faith)
their is a gau hatya ghat at haridwar to get mukta of cow killing evenn in last birth)
Manas dhenu by shri gopal maniji is a lighthouse for cow rearing and protection.
Gita press also has a Gau seva Ank. For cow. with ancient treatments and wisdom
cowdung is more powerful in making soil fertile as compared to urea.
dont import jersey or mix breed with jersey save our indian breed cow if you want to let world swril(arth, ddharma. kama. moksha). only indian cow can do wonders as a brahmin only can dleiver havya kavya to god not a forienger or other caste person. so protect nasal(breed of brahmins and cow and save the world.
Jai gau mata, har har gange, jai kashiviswanath ki, Jai brindavan,
do take pledge that irrespective or your nationality, religion save cows dont kill them. In India a dead cow in not given to butcher it is buried.
pass this message to 10 persons any if you want to save 1,00,000 cows,
In India Gokaran(in bhagvat katha) and Gorakhnath were born from cow.
We have a great religion which decipers God to such extent that nothing no prophecy can stand to its complexity of rvelations. all religions are copy cut paste. go for real dont buy pirated. So buy gods word.
with thanks pledge to watch gau katha on astha tv.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION FROM A LECTURE: BY SWAMI RAMSUKHDASJI
Killing of Cows
It is a very sad thing that in our Country there is killing of cows going on in
a very large scale. In the last 10-12 years, the killing in Calcutta and in
Kerala, is happening on a very large scale. The minister of Kerala had said
that in the last twelve months in our state more than 14 lakh cows have been slaughtered. He said, that we do not kill the cows from our own State; we are slaughtering those cows that are brought here from others States ! In Mumbai, Devanaar slaughter house, bulls are slaughtered. According to the law, only old bulls can be killed, but in Mumbai, even youthful, young bulls are slaughtered - we have visited that place. There is unrighteouness that is definitely going on in this act, but along with act that unrighteousness that is going on in the entire country.
Both food and clothing come from farming. Where farming is done using bulls and cows, it is OK, but where machinery is used, many scholars have said that the resources such as petroleum, gas, diesel etc. will be exhausted in approximately two to three decades. At that time this automation will be of limited use. Right now, coming under the sway of this machinery, you are neglecting the bulls and cows. You are destroying them, but when this equipment will no longer be useful and there are no more cows and bulls, then what will be the condition ! How will farming be done ? Without farming, how will you get food and clothing ? Without food and clothing, how will life be sustained ? In Rajasthan in many places, the bulls are used for drawing water from wells. When these bulls are destroyed, how will you get water? It is a very great dilemma, but brothers we are not paying attention towards such things. How much thoughtless activity (anarth) is taking place, we are simply not aware of such things.
When we tell the younger and older children, to study, but they do not have the same level of interest and engagement in studying, that they have in playing and having fun. In the same way, you too are engaged in playing, not in deep study. It is a grave mistake that right now you are not instrospecting on your future. In the future the mistakes will be so paramount, that it will become very difficult to put your hands around it. We have seen in the Deonar slaugher house in Mumbai, where flocks and flocks of cattle are there at a distance, and few men are revolting and striking against these hideous acts to not allow the bulls to be slaughtered. The police catch the men and drive them off to other locations. The bulls are then taken inside and slaughtered. Now people are not standing up for the rights of these animals. Like those who are in deep slumber, they too are sleeping. When a young girl becomes a widow, the mother worries, because the mother sees to her future that is unknown to the young
girl. Similar misfortune is happening in our country today. It is a grave
mistake. But for earning money and for accumulation of things, and due to
greed, men have become blind and are intensely engaged in killing cows. They have no idea what they will do with all that money ? But leaving that money behind they will die someday, that you, I and every one else knows. What difference does it make whether we leave 10-20 lakhs or 1 - 2 crores of rupees behind or even more behind. When the eyes are permanently shut, there is nothing there. But today, our attention does not go to that, we are not alert as to what the condition of the country will be ? Even the government is not thinking about this. All we are thinking is that simply anyhow we must get money. The greed for money has made man so blind - there is no end in sight !
In my understanding, just as the dependency on God can lead a man to his
salvation, similarly, dependency on wealth, can lead a man to hell and trapped in the birth and death cycles of 8.4 million different wombs. It is not the money itself, but the dependence on money, reliance on money, greed for money, attachment to money, fondness of money which are all the root causes of one's downfall. There is no other mistake, no other fault, no other flaw, no other sin, no other sorrow, no other type of envy or jealousy, no other remorse or suffering, that is not resulting from the greed for money. All the sorrow that exists, all is resulting from greed for money only. If one sacrifices this greed and utilizes this money for good causes then this wealth of yours will be a success. Your life will be a success and this world will also be relieved of it's problems. One day, all this wealth will leave you, but that will not benefit you in your salvation. If salvation is through parting at time of death, then all who were dying would have attained salvation, because their wealth, their estates, their family, their power, etc. all would separate from them. But with that, he does not get released from bondage. Freedom comes from renouncing from within. Greed is within and the money is on the outside. The money is not at fault. The greed for money, the love and fondness for money,
the intense longing for wanting more and more money - these tendencies are the cause of the most senseless and improper acts. Therefore divine souls ! If you become alert and careful then it will be a very good thing. Within thirty years we would have grown up and become somewhat old but what thoughts and concerns have you had for the upcoming generations ? What will be their state of affairs ? It is definitely something to think about. But man simply does not take a long term view in these things ! For how long will this Government position (elected chair) that you are holding last ? On the other hand, there is no attention at all to thoughtless acts that will weigh heavy on you later on. But who to explain this to? Who to share this with ?
Therefore brother, become alert ! Come to your senses and think for yourself that what will be the state of affairs of the Country ? A lot of wealth (cows and other cattle) has already been destroyed. If now you save it, then some can still be saved.
Simply for the greed of money you are trading in leather, meat, cows, bulls
etc., as these can generate more income and wealth for you. Separating meat, bones, blood, tongue, intestines, horns, nails, liver, heart, skin, etc so that you can get more money. As the cow nears the slaughter house, it's price increases ten folds. Simply for the greed of money, this killing of cows is taking place.
There are three gates to hell that have been described - desire, anger, and greed. Of these, the greatest gate to hell is enjoyment of pleasures and greed for accumulation of wealth. Therefore it is my sincere prayer that simply awaken ! What can you do ? Do not utilize leather, and one more thing, every family member must daily keep aside a handful of food item for the protection of the cows and donate it to a gaushala (shed that cares for and protects cows) etc. This point has been expressed by me, contrary to my nature. If you put this point to use, then it will be very good, and if you don't then the choice is yours. There are many such points, you all can contemplate more on them.

Please see this video of the ill treatment of loving animals in our country. We each can take personal responsibility in our shopping decisions and in our eating habits. Let us pray for the protection of the weak and helpless !!! Let us live by Dharma! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bb8lZyRkoGg&feature=share
Let there be love for all of creation .........
Beauty without cruelty -
Millions of animals are tortured for research and product safety without helping humans much, because clinical trials on humans follow before marketing.... Boycotting products tested on animals is increasing in popularity. DO NOT USE PRODUCTS THAT HAVE BEEN TESTED ON ANIMALS.
All food poisoning is caused by non-vegeterian foods whcih also contaminate veg dishes. Eggs have the highest count of Coliform bacteria, which can result in Salmonella infection. Every year, around 20,000,000 people get this infection and 200,000 of them die woldwide. GO VEG !!
We can easily choose packaged veg foods. Unmarked products are usually non-veg. Use soaps and cosmetics marked veg. (i.e. no animal bi-products)
Pigs are born, raised and killed for pork and sausage. Hog bristles are obtained through torture. Synthetic brushes are as good, if not better. Use synthetic bristle brushes to paint, and other brushes etc. GO VEG !
Animals are used as LIVE LURES ... (rabbits, cats etc) As part of the training, half stared grey hounds are made to chase rabbits and tear them apart. Recalling the taste of frest blood, they willingly chase mechanical lures on race tracks. Join the campaign to get greyhound racing halted in Punjab (search for online petition)
BWC is a way of life which causes no creature of land, sea or air terror, torture or death.
GO VEG !
Beauty without Cruelty
I do not think Cows should be slaughtered.
But have we all thought about should tomatoes, cucumbers or other vegetables be cut ?
Anything made by Nature has life, not just cows.
Cows in India are all over, disturbing traffic and making a mess.
While preaching non-killing of cows, we should address the public nuisance created in the name of our own religion.
Also, please do not cut any vegetables. Thay have feelings too ...........!!
What wre we all going to eat ?
I do not think Gods live on food made on earth, and we should all begin to live on Love and Fresh Air.

Priya sadhak, prasana ke liye dhanyavad!
Swamiji Maharaj has explained "Why cow is so sacred" very beatifully
in Sadhaka Sanjivani (Ref: Gita 18-44, page 1947 in English). Some of
the points from the commentary are:
1. In the materialistic world of today, a cow is very useful. Her
milk, ghee and cow-dung add to the wealth of a nation. India being
primarily an agricultural country, bullocks are used to plough the
land. The land can also be ploughed by male-buffaloes or camels.
Buffaloes cannot work so efficiently as bullocks because the bullocks
have more sattvic strength, they can work for a longer time in the
sun compared to buffaloes. Camels cost lot more than the bullocks.
2. The grains produced by cow-dung and urine of the cows as manure
are considered pure. Dung and urine of cows make the land more
fertile as compared to chemical fertilizers as has been learnt by
conducting experiments. Chemical fertilizers destroy the fertility of
land in a few years and make it barren. Cow-dung is being exported to
foreign countries so that the lost fertility of the land may be
3. Cows of India are gentle and sattvic in nature. Their sattvic milk
sharpens the intellect and makes the nature of the person mild.
Foreign cows give more milk but they are angry by nature, their milk
makes one cruel. A she-buffalo gives more milk than a cow but her
milk is of rajasic nature. Those who drink cow's milk are more active
than those who drink a she-buffalo's milk. Once an experiment was
conducted on military horses, it was found that horses fed on cow-
milk could cross a river while the horses fed on buffalo-milk could
not do though the later seemed stronger. The milk of she-camel being
of tamasic nature is not useful and it is not used to curd and butter.
4. Cow occupies an important place in performing all religious rites. Her milk, ghee and dung are used in performing rites and ceremonies at birth, tonsure and sacred thread. Cow-dung purifies the places too where these rites are performed. Cow's milk is used in preparing
sweet dishes which are offered to Brahmans, in honor of manes. When a
cow is offered to a Brahman it is considered as a punya or high
merit. Also cow's ghee is used in religious sacrifices which are
performed to satisfy desires.
5. The cow is a sacred animal, even the air which touches her body
becomes pure. Her dung and urine, check epidemics such as plague and
cholera. Houses plastered with cow-dung are not so much affected by
bombs as the cemented houses. Cow-dung eliminates poison. In
Varanasi, there was a case of a saint saving a man who was supposed
to be dead by a snake-bite, just by smearing the body with cow-dung
two times. Urine of cow is very useful in heart diseases. A little
quantity of urine of a she-calf, as a dose everyday cures stomach
diseases. A saint suffering from asthma had a lot of relief by
drinking a little urine of the she-calf. These days several medicines
are prepared from cow-dung and urine of cows. Cooking gas is made
from cow-dung also.
6. Service to the cow without expectation of any reward leads to
purification of heart and enables eventually one to achieve
salvation. Lord Krishana is known as Gopala because He staged a human
play as a cowherd with bare feet. In ancient times in India sages
reared cows so that they could have nourishment from the cow's milk
& ghee to sharpen their intellect. Because of the sharp intellects,
they could create such great and rare classic literature. Cow's milk
and butter provided them with longevity, great emperors went to these
sages for expert advice on complex matters related to their kingdoms.
7. In Indian historical records, innumerable names are mentioned who
sacrifices their lives for the protection of cows. But today, it is
sad plight that thousands of cows are slaughtered daily, out of greed only. If this state of affairs continues, cows will totally
disappear. Then of course cow-dung will not be available. Without cow-
dung land will go barren and there will not be production of corn,
wheat and cotton. People will be deprived of the bare necessities of
life, such as food & clothing and they will have a miserable life.
Slaughter of cows is the main cause of increasing number of natural
disasters such as famine, droughts, volcanoes etc.
Cow is holy because the Vedas and the vedic literaure says so.
Krishna says: krushi gauraksha vaaNijyam vaishya karama svabhaavajam.
It is dharma to keep cows, especially for the merchantile people,
for the benefit of the society.
The Vedic people need to give higher prices for the cow milk and
milk products in order to encourage farmers to keep cows and make
the business attractive for them. Thus by engaging in cow seva we
can continue to make milk and milk products available.
jai sri krishna!

The cow is the Mother of this world. The mother that gives birth to a child feeds milk for the initial years, but the Cow feeds us milk for the rest of our lives. Even at time of death, curd (yoghurt) made of Cow's milk is given. She is the mother, and grand-mother, and great grand-mother from both sides of the family. She gives milk to all. She is the mother of this entire world. She is the protector. At one place some thieves broke into the farm house, a cow in the farm chased them away. Just as mother protects, likewise she protects, she fosters, she loves, she caresses. By remembering "Gau Mata" (Mother Cow), the inner-being (antahkaran) is purified. By petting, stroking a cow, many incurable diseases are cured. If you think it proper, do it and see for yourself. By protecting the cows, we are naturally protected. Nowadays, people have stopped wanting to know about the greatness of cows. By the grace of Cows, both this life and beyond is improved. By Mother Cow's grace, the impossible become possible.
Cows have immense strength. If they are made happy, if they are made pleased, then she provides all kinds of happiness and protection. If one sincerely and honestly takes care of a cow, then for its upkeep and maintenance, there will be no shortage of any resources. With your heart, try it and see for yourself. You keep one-two cows in your backyard, than very easily they will be taken care off. Nowadays, people's sentiments have really diminished regarding cows. Mother Cows bestows all four Dharma, Artha, Kaama, Moksha. The medicines made from Cow urine, has significant benefits.
He who destroys cows, they will be destroyed. This incident happened during the reign of the Britishers. The hindus and muslims were fighting, when some very strong muslim men were returning after wrangling. They caught hold of a cow, thinking they would kill and cook it. They asked one of the men to hold on to the cow, while they went to get supplies for the feast. The man felt sympathy and released the cow. The five men were later caught and ordered to be hung. All died, except the one who had saved the cow. The cow came and stood under the rope where he was hanging from and by the support of her horns, the man was saved. This is a real incident.
Real incidents were shared in the "Kalyan Prakashit." There was a Brahmin from Hissar who was going to Bikaner. He fell seriously ill on his way in Churu. He wrote a letter to his brother, to come for his aid, as he was in a very bad state. At night he dreamt of a Cow, who said to him that you saved my life, I will do the same to you. He had saved a cow caught in the quick sand. On waking up, the gentleman was completely cured.
Gather up all the greens, vegetable peels/remains, wheat / other flour etc. from your kitchen and serve these to the cows, then there will not be a need to incur additional expenses and the cows will be taken care off. The cows eat with great delight Green grass, long stringy vegetables (guvaar). How will the cows be pleased, how can she be made, these sentiments must remain within each of us. Things can be limited, but sentiments can be unlimited. By this service you will attain salvation. Do not sell your cows, or else it is likely they will end up in the slaughter house. It is difficult to take care of thousands of cows in one place, but if all householders keep one cow each, then easily the cows will be protected.
It is a grave sin to inject a cow for milk. Such milk should not even be consumed. Previously there were 36 crore animals, now in a count there were only 10 crore animals remaining. Do not use plastics. Plastics bags with food thrown in streets are often swallowed by street cows and many unknowingly eat the plastic and die. 12-13 kgs of plastic was found inside the dead cows. Therefore use paper bags and cloth bags. If the cows die from pain and suffering, all these manufacturers of plastic bags and everyone down the chain who is involved will have to share in the sin. Nowadays there is great misfortune for cows and hindus. Do not do family planning. Let the children be born, it is a sin to do family planning. Even in the western countries there is opposition to abortion. Whatever way cows and hindus are protected one must try, or else it will be a great loss. The void caused by family planning and not allowing human beings to be born, can never be filled.
