Cow Dung purifies every kind of impurity

By Rita Jamshed Kapadia 2 comments

The Upanishads say, “Gomaye Vasate Lakshmi”, meaning the Goddess Lakshmi lives in the cow dung.

The epic Mahabharata says, “Of all the 84 lakh (8.4 million) species of living entities, only the cow is such an entity whose dung is not impure, but rather it purifies every kind of impurity.”

According to the Text, Shridharmapaddathi,” Every day early in the morning, the woman of the house should smear cow dung throughout the home, once she has done so, she will meet with no difficulties at all”.

“In the early morning, the threshold of the house is not to be left blank. The Goddess, the Deity of all resides at the threshold. The woman must smear cow dung at the threshold and make auspicious powder designs over it and mark with an auspicious sign of swastika. A woman who follows these rituals will have three things: wealth, long life and good reputation”

Can it be added to dhanshak as a purifier? If so is it available in Canada? Does it have to come from a cow or is bull poop okay? They have tons of it at the White House I believe.
