Indian Hindu's Doesnt eat Cow...Why?This is the Fact!

Since the dawn of time, Cows have been assisting mankind with life itself. It works hard for mankind to live an easylife. It helps mankind to plow the field so that mankind can plant crops and produce food. It also gives milk for mankind to grow strong and healthy. And cow milk is the only milk mankind used to drink beside mother'smilk.
So there is a sense of appreciation towards the the cow forit helped the civilization to grow and prosper. It is actually this sense of appreciation that prevents Hindus from eating the cow. Even after its death a cow still contributes to the well being of humans through its skin, which will be used in many ways.
But, in the ancient times, the simple farming folks are not sophisticated enough to understand this philosophy.Hence, the rulers and religious leaders linked cows to religion, depicting it as Lord Krishna's playmate in His childhood, and also as Lord Shiva's transportation instrument. And all kinds of rituals and cultural events began to materialize.
Cows are now being used for spiritual prosperity as well. This, elevated the cows to a level ofdivinity in a Hindu's life, regardingthem to be sacred and pure. This is also has become a way to explain to children why Hindus don't eat a cow,since their minds are also not readyto absorb philosophies.The acceptance of cows as divinebeings changed the way Hindus treattheir livestocks. Cows are not seen as merely a livestock or working animals used for plowing fields.
Instead,these animals are treated with respect and love. Often treated as part of the family, the cows are always given names to call them and raised as a pet rather than a livestock (in India,this is the lifestyle even today).Taking into account all the sacrifices the cows had made for mankind, a sense of Its Divinity and also the acceptance as a family, makes the cows not to be seen as a food.
But many Hindus do not realize the Philosophy behind the religious fact of why this custom came to be, believing the spiritual fact as the sole reason forit. Although that is true, it also buries the culture part deep into ignorance.

  4. Good question.Let me explain. For ur reference pls look at the picture of that Cow (Ko) means...Cow in tamil...Matha means mother so, Komatha means...Mother in the form of Cow. Get it? And such the Cow is treated Holy as its being with Lord Shiva and Krishna as his trasportation, not a goat.It is also known as Kamadenu...which means, A cow that could fulfill your desires.As u can see, inside its body, it contains a ot of figures that represents the five elements (Panjabootham) and also the thevargal (Holy people or the Heaven residents)A cow is also called as Laksmi because it could actually brings a lot luck to the person who has it, where he could sell the milk it produce, its Cowdang (as natural fuel for replace gases), to use its strength on the field for plantation and a etc. Thats why, as a resepct towards the service of Cow towards human being and its help to us, Hindus decline to eat Cow. It is also being treatened as Mother to us. Goat is not that holy compared to the Cow. But according to Vedham, Hindus doesnt allowed to eat meat. In such way, Hindu's nowadays has no longer pure vege but they still having the sence of sympathy on some animals...such as Cow.Hope it helps.:)

  10. Hmm...as i said before...the Cow has more contribution towards the humans than the goat, thus the Cow is not being eaten, the goat is the opposite not much of contribution and it is also not being treated holy.
    Hmm kalau tak jelaskan macam mane nak faham bang? Asyik ulang soalan yang sama aje...kan kat atas dah saya jelaskan panjang lebar pun tak faham...kalau tak jelaskan secara terperinci lagilah tak faham...ish ish...
