COW THERAPY

The practice of cow therapy is centered on the inherent healing propensities of the cow—considered to be one of the seven mothers in the ancient Vedas. The cow’s warmer body temperature, slower heartbeat and mammoth size can make associating with them an incredibly soothing experience, and giving the animal a brushing or even getting licked is all part of the therapeutic encounter. Protecting cows is one of the most important activities of the New Vrindaban community.
