ŠrilaPrabhubada’s books describe that by consuming Ghee the fine brain cells which are needed to understand qualities and develop virtues are fed. Cow protection was very important in brahminical culture. In India, one can see cows strolling freely along the roads and resting beside them, without paying much attention to car noise, even to this day. The Indian people consider them holy animals and never harm them.
Ghi is the essence of milk, therefore the core and heart of this white liquid which is produced by the really special animal, ‘the mother cow’. Just imagine what a cow means to a family living in Russian, Mongolian or Indian steppes!
The milk which serves as the basis of Golden Ghee originates from regions where commitment to the best possible life-style and animal well-being has been practiced for more than 4 decades. There, the same as here, the responsibility to livestock begins with the worms in the soil.
During the sunny period the cows graze on hilly, mountainous and flat pastures. Their habitat is full of colourful flowers and herbs, the water is clean and live, and the air fresh. All elements are combined. They are represented by: gentle sun, fresh wind, clear water, rich soil, abundant grass, different herbs and flowers and a unique animal that unifies it all.
In reality eco famers, owners of milking cows, favour food quality to maximum animal efficiency. The cows which give the raw material that Golden Ghee butter is made of give in average up to 25% less milk than conventional ones.
Farmers strive toward maintaining high quality diet of cows also during the winter. Plant growth, demand-stimulation in the surrounding areas, rich forage grass, clover, corn, cereal, lupine, beans, peas, soya, sugar beet and other not genetically modified foods, as well as expeller and mineral compound creation are farmers’ concerns all year round.
Homely and familial regime also governs the lives of the calves for they are kept at their mothers’ side for a long time. Well-being is thus the key to healthy immune system of the animal.
Throughout the warm season the cows graze freely (living food), while during the winter they have access to specially made yards with suitable oases and training grounds.
When animals are in need of medical assistance, homeopathy and acupuncture are first in line.
Cow tethering in stables is not practiced and the animals always have dry and clean litter made from natural materials such as straw and other.
It is important to distinguish between ghis that are bought in England, India, in stores, etc. These can be of lighter colour, almost white. Especially India is known for its Ghee made from buffalo milk or milk fat. Buffaloes are a lot less picky when it comes to food than cows are, the difference is, however, easily observed in terms of colour, smell and taste ofGhee itself.
Alongside integrity and quality of milk, the crucial role is played by the energy on and with which ghee is cooked, the required time, careful procedure, warmth of the environment, handling, ways of packaging, storage, knowledge, skills, etc.
"Ghee is live nectar that combines SUN rays, WATER drops, EARTH minerals, GRASS prana, COW dedication., and HUMAN will"
