Published by: WeGopals Team
December 6, 2019

We GoPals are group of professionals volunteering for serving Indigineous Technology Professionals(Desi Gou). To Know our Journey from inception, read the article Our Journey Desi Gou is part of Indian lifestyle since ages unknown. It has helped mankind in farms to plough, on roads to carry loads, at home with milk and with urine & cow dung for several other uses in day to day life. Desi cow is not only looked upon as a source of benefit but also considered as a family member and revered with a motherly status & often called “Gau Mata”.Indian history is also full of stories that underline the importance of cow. Gopal (One who guards cows/friends of gou ), one of many names given to Lord Krishna in his childhood days. He was called so as he used to take special care of his cattle while he took them for grazing. Shri Krishna,  spent his childhood at Raja Nand’s household, who was a king of dairy farmers. Eventually when he grew up he took Cow protection to next level by by turning himself into Gau-Sevak.

"Humans need cows more than cows need humans. Cows need to be protected for humans to survive."

Around 7 years back, we GoPals started our journey towards spreading awareness and application of Desi Gou for mankind inspired by the above message. Our work through service completely endorses the greatness bestowed on desi cow by our ancestors and further underlines the importance of it to develop a great nation.

Benefits of Desi Cow

Cow Milk

Cow Milk touches practically all aspects of life. Men or women, kids or adults, rural or urban, milk is a wholesome food for all. It reduces acidity, increases immunity and sharpens the brain. Cow milk forms a base for many ayurvedic medicines. Desi Cow milk is A2 Type milk that helps fight diabetes in infants and adults. Many more products like curd, buttermilk, butter & clear butter (Ghee) are made from cow milk. These products have high medicinal & nutritional values.

Cow Urine (Gou Mutra)

Cow Urine of any animal is discarded as a waste product but when it comes to cow its exact opposite. It’s a boon to all mankind and farmers in particular. Cow urine is used to produce organic & natural fertilizers, insect repellents and other products in farming. It is not just used for external purposes alone but highly beneficial if consumed by humans. It has high medicinal value and is considered as a super medicine. Our modern day scientists  have conducted an extensive research on indigenous cow urine and have proven its anti-cancerous properties. Indian researchers  have filed  US, China & India Patent on desi cow urine as an anticancer drug.

Cow Dung (Gou Maya)

Another cow excreta which has value of gold equal to its weight for farmers. Ancient scriptures mention “Gomay Vasate Lakshmi” literally meaning Lakshmi – Goddess of Wealth & Prosperity dwells in Cow Dung. Dung or Gobar – as called in Hindi has high micro-organismic value. This is helpful to increase fertility and productivity of soil. Cow Dung Compost is a natural fertilizer and many other organic fertilizers can be made from cow dung. Cow dung is part of many ayurvedic medicines.

Panchagavya (5 Cow Products)

Milk, curd, go ghrut(Ghee), gomutra, gomay form a Holy union of panchagavya ayurvedic medicine. These when mixed in different measures and with different other components form a range of medicines. These medicines have proved to be effective to address a lot of medical problems. They have reportedly cured many chronic ailments and are the only alternatives to modern medical sciences. These medicines do not cost much dent to the pocket as they are made from all cow based products those are easily available.


As we saw earlier cow with its urine & dung is very helpful for farmers. Similarly bulls of Indian breed are also essential for farmers. Indian bulls are supposed to be hard and long working animals as they can work for long hours without food and water. They possess good heat adaptability and water holding capacity. This helps farmers to employ them for various agricultural needs. They are coupled with carts and used for transportation purposes.


Our team has extensively carried out research work in Raghavendra Gou Ashram, Malur  by planting 700+ saplings which  has shown that cow based natural farming increased the productivity of soil by manifolds and beyond our levels of imagination. It is now  possible for us to reach out  and educate the farmers to take diverse crops without corrupting the land with chemicals and dangerous poisonous substances. It will definitely lead for a better bio-diverse environment in and around fields. It is also visualized and realized  by our volunteers that the water table in the area where we did tree plantation in malur also increased manifold ( Hand pump in raghavendra gou ashram, malur  started giving water January 2018  which was not functioning for several years)  when jeevamrutha is used.

Refer our article in website titled “Jeevamrutha is Devamrutha” on how we  prepare the jeevamrutha that made all 700+ saplings  survive @ malur  our laboratory for research work on  cow urine and dung.

A strong nation is built with the food it eats. It is responsibility of every farmer in India to provide healthy and poison free food to all citizens. The only way possible for these farmers to produce poison free food is to lead cow based natural way of life. We as consumers and farm producers should support cow based natural farming in all possible ways.

"If you are the one who want to be part of solution to the problems that we face today in terms of food,environment,farming and health volunteer with us by joining us in our programs and become active volunteer @ GoPals"
