According to ‘Hadith‘ (quotations & teachings of Prophet Muhammad, pbuh) Milk, Ghee and Beef:

[from the famous hadith collection “Zâd al-ma‘âd” by Ibn Qayyim]

in Arabic:
‘an suhayb radiya Allâh ‘anhu yarfa‘uhu:
‘alaykum bi-laban al-baqar fa-innahâ shifâ’ wa-samnuhâ dawâ’ wa-lahmuhâ dâ’.

in English:
“You should use cows’ milk, because it is good for health, and cows’ ghee is good for health, but beef is bad for health.”

{the literal meaning of the words the Prophet used is much stronger than that. He said that milk is “healing,” ghee is “medicine,” and beef is “disease.”}



A famous saying from Vedas:
Durjanam Prathamam Vande Sajjanam Tadanantaram

@ English…
First, worship the bad person, and then the good man. The bad man is falling and giving you an example, “don’t do what I did.”


A quotation from ‘Rigveda

Akashat patitam toyam, yada gachchati sagram,
Sarva devo namaskaraha, keshavam pratigachchati.

@ English…
From the sky, from wherever it(water in cloud) falls, it will finally go to the oceans only, (similarly) to any deity/entity (GOD) you pray, it all goes to that one supreme.

    …just a few suggestions for the last shloka:

    nau – i guess mentioning 9 etc may unnecessarily confuse ppl
    bhavatu -> vavatu
    maa- it simply means negation

    also for “maa vidvishavahai” – instead of saying “may we not argue….”…IMO a more correct inference would be “let there be no malice/disharmony”

    Hari Om.

    Never knew you had a blog. Now you are bookmarked!
    Very soon I should change my religious view from being an Atheist to following “Amrendrism” 🙂
    I have learnt (almost) more about religion and spirituality from you than I have my entire life from any other source…
