The cow is sacred to Hindus, not due to its utility value, as suggested by the response on the above forum. If that were to be true, the buffalo would fit the bill equally.
The cow is sacred because it is considered that a cow is the one animal that has maximum divine qualities. Another point is that among all animals, only the cow can capture the frequencies of all the deities in the Universe. It is said that a cow has 33 crore (330 million) deities in her stomach.
. Thus it is worshipped just like God Himself. By killing such an auspicious animal, one incurs sins. So we should take care of the cow and use its other products too like cow dung and cow’s urine (gomutra). Gomutra is a substance which has the maximum saattviktaa (spiritually pure component).
Thus, the cow is sacred due to spiritual, not utilitarian factors.
Importance of goumutra (cow's urine )
Whenever there is an attack from the spiritual dimension, negative energies ultimately utilise one of the Absolute Cosmic Elements to precipitate a physical manifestation of the attack such as a skin rash. When using spiritual healing tools such as Gomutra, it is best if they are used to counter attacks from the subtle dimension that have been precipitated using the Absolute Earth or Water Element. The average person will not be able to understand what Absolute Cosmic Element was used to cause the attack from the subtle and may have to adopt a trial and error methodology as to which healing remedy to use.
The Deity in the universe that is associated with Gomutra is the Datta principle. One of the functions of the Datta principle is to protect against problems caused due to departed ancestors.
With respect to manifest and unmanifest energies, Gomutra is more towards the manifest type of energy, in particular Shakti (Divine Energy). Therefore Gomutra is best used to counter attacks from the spiritual dimension where negative energies have used a more manifest type of spiritual energy.
2.1. When to use Gomutra?
Based on extensive exposure to all kind of subtle attacks, SSRF recommends that Gomutra should be used on a daily basis with one of the methods given in the next section. The effect of Gomutra when applied as a spiritual healing remedy lasts for approximately 6 hours.
The maximum effect is seen especially when the root cause of a problem is spiritual in nature, such as a skin rash caused by negative energies. If the root cause is purely physical there is only some positive effect seen after the use of Gomutra.
Perhaps the only disadvantage of the uptake of Gomutra as a spiritual healing remedy is at the psychological level. People may feel uncomfortable with the fact that it is urine, or could be disturbed by its smell or taste. However, the advantages of using Gomutra far outweigh the disadvantages.
3. How to use Gomutra?
Gomutra can be used in the following ways as a spiritual healing remedy.
Directly applying concentrated Gomutra on an affected body part. Drinking a few cc of Gomutra is also recommended as a means for spiritual healing.
Diluting it in water:
After putting a few cc of Gomutra in water, it can be sprinkled around the house to spiritually purify the premises. Alternatively, after adding a small amount of Gomutra in a bucketful of water, it can be used to have a bath.
