GUWAHATI, Nov 3 - Assam Governor Prof Jagdish Mukhi inaugurated the regional workshop cum seminar on �Panchgavya Chikitsa� at the Gauhati Gaushala here today.
In his speech, he laid stress on extensive scientific use of Panchgavya, giving health and happiness to the people.
Speaking on the occasion, the Governor said Ayurveda is based on Panchgavya, as preparations of most of the Ayurvedic medicines are dependent on the use of ingredients of the indigenous breed of cow.
Similarly, traditional Indian food items are also incomplete without products like milk, curd, ghee, etc. That is why Indian scriptures do not consider cow just as an animal, rather they worship it as a source for life-giving prosperity.
Prof Mukhi said the Indian civilisation and economic practice are always based on agriculture as well as cattle rearing.
The Governor said cattle rearing should be scientific because there are no diseases that cannot be cured by ingredients that are produced by the cow. He said every rural household should adopt a cow to help them improve their economic condition.
The Governor congratulated World Ayurveda Foundation, Gauhati Gaushala and NASYA (Assam branch) for taking the initiative to organise such a knowledge-sharing workshop.
