hb;pamho;agtsp,

          kindly don't be angry on me and i wants to know more details so asking.

          i heard when one kills cow (body of cow) person has to get killed number of times as many hair on cows body. but one thing bewilders me as actually person can't kill soul inside body of cow , i mean there should be same reaction for all killings

         a) when one kills human he gets less reaction compare to that of killing of cow that means cow is better than human? 

          But then,

          b) why scriptures doesn't mention that cow species is better than human w.r.t. liberation . we always say that only in human body only achieves perfection or liberation that indirectly shows human species is better than any other species ?

         c) again now if we agree with scriptures then is it the same soul in the cows body kills killer millions times then soul of cow body also have to take that many birth that is problem for both parties.

         logically action should have equal and opposite reaction is understandable.

         kindly give corrections and suggestions.

         d) i assume many will say bcoz krishna likes cows but actually he likes soul in the body of cows. and one may say but anyway if krishna loves cows like anything then why he doesn't stop cow killing which is happening at rate minimum 1,00,000/day.

         e) Does krishna differentiate between golok, indian, non-indian cows ? if not then why he doesn't save them personally ?

         f) now what if one kills butcher/cow meat eater/seller what will be reaction ?

          please write comments with question index reference if posible.

  • Hare Krsna!

    Because Cow is both the mother of human beings by giving her milk to the human babies and the mother of her calfs. She is like a mother to us and to our babies.

    Your servant,

  • A cow is the most magnanimous and pious soul.

    Have you looked into her eyes.

    They are full of innocence and peace.

    To banish the sin incurred from cow killing a just ruler should be prepared for using any amount of force like maharaja Pariksit.

      Hare Krsna,

      Yes, you are right prabhu.

      Their eyes are full of innocence and peace.

    Hare Krishna dear Devotees, please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

     a) when one kills human he gets less reaction compare to that of killing of cow that means cow is better than human?

    It depends what kind of human. If the human is degraded killer, murderer who has no use in the society then it is less sinful than killing a cow. But if a person is in brahmana body, or who is Vaishnava or just pious person who is doing so much for the society then it is for sure more sinful than killing a cow.

    Cow is useful in performing yagyas. If there is no cow ghee than yagyas are stopped it means without yagya prosperity won't be happen and bad things like fame, poverty, dry climate will follow.

    In this way cow is very important. 

     b) why scriptures doesn't mention that cow species is better than human w.r.t. liberation . we always say that only in human body only achieves perfection or liberation that indirectly shows human species is better than any other species ?

    it is true. Cow is the last stage of animal body. After death soul in the body of a cow takes human body, there is no doubt. Maybe body of a female... because cow does not have intelligence enough in order to understand the Supreme Truth. But by serving to humankind she earns very good karma and takes human body and the will be able to practice God Consciousness. 

    Each living entity is unique in its own nature. For example, what we will do if there are no ants? But they are not better than human beings but they do also very big services helping to other living entities by cleaning....or what we would do if there were no cats? mouses would become more and destroy grains...in this way cows have their own duties humans have their own.

    As like brahmanas have their own duties, sudras also. But it does not mean that brahmanas are greater than sudras. It is like as a whole body. Even if one finger on the leg is damaged then head, heart, hands ...will be in trouble taking care if that finger.

    For example, husband is more intelligent, because of that he serves to God and serving to her husband wife also gets half of his results. In this way everyone has to do their own duty according to their nature and THAT IS PERFECTION.

    c) again now if we agree with scriptures then is it the same soul in the cows body kills killer millions times then soul of cow body also have to take that many birth that is problem for both parties.

    logically action should have equal and opposite reaction is understandable.

    it might be not so. The laws of karma is very tuft to follow. For that one needs very super intelligence as like of Yamaraj. Cow may get human body and by the mercy of Devotees become Krishna Conscious and remove all his sins and go back to Godhead. The killer human will go to the hell, not directly to cow body. Then after billions of years come to this Earth and goes through all species of life then only gets cow body then human, and that will happen if she dies naturally. If she is killed then she will again take cow body.

    because of that it is very sinful to stop the progressive evaluation of animals by killing them.

    d) i assume many will say bcoz krishna likes cows but actually he likes soul in the body of cows. and one may say but anyway if krishna loves cows like anything then why he doesn't stop cow killing which is happening at rate minimum 1,00,000/day.

     Krishna likes and takes care of those who do take much care of themselves but use their most time for the service of Lord and others. Cow is like that. She always serves others. She does not have time to herself. Even eating she serves others by producing cow dung, urine. Because of that Krishna takes care of her. Krishna is attracted by unconditional serving attitude.

    Because of that Krishna likes mostly brahmanas, because they also do not have time for themselves but always busy with worshiping Deities, others...

    He is trying to stop it everyday. In this age of Kali He came in the form of the Holy Names and transforming peoples' hearts. By that transformation He can save cows. Arjuna asks in Bhagavad Gita why Krishna does not make one Law so that all follow it, but Krishna says that even if i do so people will brake the laws as they brake the laws of government. 

    e) Does krishna differentiate between golok, indian, non-indian cows ? if not then why he doesn't save them personally ?

    no, because of that He went to US over the ocean in the heart of Srila Prabhupada and trying to save cows there also. And all around the world. 

    f) now what if one kills butcher/cow meat eater/seller what will be reaction ?

    When Lord Chaitania wanted to kill Jagay Lord Nityananda told that He came in this age of Kali not to kill but to transform their hearts. In this way by this movement of preaching we want to kill the demoniac qualities in their hearts.

    All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

    Your servant,

     

    • Dear Bhaktin Maral,

      I didn't know that. Could you please explain why when the cow is being killed they have to take cow body again?

      Your servant,

      • Volunteer

        Hare Krishna dear Mutlu Mataji, please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

        Srila Prabhupada in his purports many times repeats that to kill animals mean to stop them from evalution process which means more sin.

        If they die naturally then they can be uplifted but if no then they have still some karma of a cow or whatever is there and they have to wash away that karma again in the similar body. 

        For example, even if human does suicide not finishing up his karma he can not take other body but will remain as a ghost and wash his karma. 

        But please, let's not try to go into this karmic bounds. They are really to understand for us. In order to understand and calculate all karmas we need to have special brain for it. 

        Sometimes it might so happen that cow will think about a killer and take human body but sometimes who knows what will happen???????????? 

        We get bodies according about what we lament at the time of death. 

        Your servant, 

        • Hare Krsna! Thank you Bhaktin Maral.

    • regarding point c) comment i would like to add one more question

      on the cover page of "laws of nature" book why it is printed that men with cow head cuts head of cow having mens head that clearly indicates soul in past cow body takes revenge or response to past did (that may happen millions time) so now question arises now days so many cows are getting killed someone may understand that this soul in cow body (who was past butcher) is getting reaction of his past deeds !

        humble obeisances Nilesh Prabhuji,

        again, the laws of karma are very difficult to follow. Even to get a cow body one should be pure from many sins. Not ordinary soul takes body of a cow. Because the soul in cow body will take the human body in the next if she dies naturally.

        But sometimes may happen that butcher directly gets cow body and cow human. As like once upon a time sage was sitting who gave the vow never to speak lie.

        And suddenly cow came running and went to the right road. After some time butcher reached that place and asked the sage where cow has gone. Sage showed where cow has ran. And butcher found her and did his job.

        Then in the next life this sage takes birth again in human body and once he was on his pilgrimage tour. One night rain was heavy and he became hungry and could not stay outside. So he reached one house and woman opened the door. They were wife and husband living at that house. They let him to stay for one night. 

        When husband slept wife came to that sage and told that she wants to enjoy with him. Sage replied that she was mad, how is it possible, that she has alive husband....

        Hearing that the woman went to another room and after some minutes came again but this time with the head of his husband :O

        She killed her husband :O

        Sage became very fearful and tried to run away from that home. But woman shouted to everyone that he killed her husband. And police arrested the sage for murder even though he again and again told that he did not kill him. In this way he suffered in the prison many years.

        ---

        The conclusion: The husband of a woman in previous life that butcher which killed the cow. And she was the cow. And the pilgrim was that sage who practiced not to lie.

        In this way the ways of karma are very difficult to follow.

        And one more thing, now we may understand why these days are so many divorces :x "???"

        Your servant,
