In order to curb cattle slaughter to save farmers and the entire society from a grave situation, Aadarsh Gauseva Anusandhan Kendra was started at Maharashtra’s Akola town. The institution’s work is going on as per the three-fold programme i.e. Go-rakshan, Go-sangopan and Go-samvardhan (protecting, nurturing and conserving the cattle). Karyakartas and scientists at Aadarsh are striving hard to make society realize the importance of panchgavya (five cow-based products such as milk, curd, ghee, cow-dung and cow urine). Poverty and ignorance compelled farmers to sell the cattle to the butcher and this further endangered their profession. Karyakartas realized the need to curb this practice in time to save the farmers and ultimately, the entire society from a great danger. Steps were initiated in this direction. Some of the karyakartas also freed a number of cows from the butcher’s trap. However, where to keep these cows, was a big question. Aadarsh Sanskar Mandal provided them solution by donating them land and thus the foundation was laid for Aadarsh Gauseva Anusandhan Kendra. Mr Modak, Revashankarji Sharma from Rajasthan and Maheshwari from Mumbai came forward to provide guidance about the medicinal values of cow urine (go-mutra) and cow dung. Panchgavya is used as a base in a number of Ayurvedic medicines. Research in the field of panchgavya became the prime objective of this institution and Aadarsh Gauseva Anusandhan Project was initiated.Cattle farming is regarded as a supportive business to conventional farming. Karyakartas concentrated their attention towards the other aspects of cattle farming besides milk production. Barren land is a prime cause of concern for farmers today. In order to increase the yield, chemical fertilizers were used in large quantities. This naturally resulted into depletion in the fertility of land. Hence, the production also suffered. Under such circumstances, it was proposed to use natural fertilizers and the cow dung manure that was being used in antiquity by our forefathers got priority. Special type of tanks have made designed for the production of this manure. A layer of leaves, fodder, garbage, cow dung, etc is arranged in the tank. Water that is used for cleaning gou-shala is put into the tank. Go-mutra is also placed. Three layers are arranged one upon another and are kept intact for three months. The manure prepared in this manner is again recycled in the tank. Vermi-compost is also manufactured in a similar way. In addition to these manures, a third type of manure that is obtained really makes us seek the blessings of Go-mata bowing at her feet. When a cow is alive, it benefits human beings right from the milk up to the dung in every aspect. However, when a cow is buried, good quality manure is produced after some days of its burial. The strength of this manure is several times higher than any other chemical fertilizer. This manure has been named as ‘Samadhi Manure.’Apart from this, a mixture of go-mutra and Neem leaves is placed in an earthen pot and this pot is buried in the ground. After some days, an extract is prepared from this mixture that is used as an excellent insecticide. Today, renowned scientists of the world are also propounding the conservation of cattle and research in the field of panchgavya. Modern lifestyle blessed us with a number of commodities for materialistic pleasure. However, spurt in the number of diseases and instability of mind is the by-products of this luxurious lifestyle. Air pollution is an increasing cause of concern in cities day by day. Planting more and more number of saplings is an effective solution. In addition of this, nurturing cows is also important because cow is the only animal that inhales oxygen from the air and exhales it with added purification. This has been proved scientifically. Research is under way regarding panchgavya medicines. It is believed that 33 types of deities reside inside the body of a cow. This belief has a scientific background also. For a human body to remain healthy, 33 nutrients are essential. These are present in panchgavya. In our culture, go-mutra has been regarded as holy from religious point of view. The significance is not just spiritual but it is scientific also. Drinking go-mutra destroys toxic substances in our body. This has now been proved through a number of experiments. Go-mutra is used for treating a number of ailments including cancer. In order to avoid the foul smell, go-mutra has been introduced in tablet form by Aadarsh. A bathing bar has also been manufactured that brings glow on skin. 42 types of such medicines are manufactured at Aadarsh. Efforts are also in full swing for obtaining the patent for these medicines under able guidance of scientists such as Dr Vijay Bhatkar.Not only the cow-based products, but the company of cows is also beneficial. This has been proved now by the scientists at gou-seva ashram. A temple of Lord Krishna has been constructed in the premises where the pregnant women perform a ritual called ‘Sapt-Go-Pradakshina’ so that they inhale the purified oxygen exhaled by the cows. The gou-shala has been built scientifically, timely fodder is provided to cows and a water purification plant is also there to quench their thirst. A complete care is thus provided to cows. Experimentation is being made to utilize cow dung for preparing cooking gas and power generation.
