This book is a warrior’s manual, a manual especially for Vedic Dharma, and Dharma in general. This book offers plenty of ammunition to counter all the reasons why we should not protect Mother Cow. The cow is our mother for Dharmic reasons, spiritual reasons, economic reasons, compassionate reasons, and environmental reasons. And this books shows why.
It may not have all the arguments that I have read over the years, but it has plenty that are useful, especially for those living in India.
It has plenty of verses from the Vedic texts like the Rig Veda, that show and give evidence that killing of the cow and other quadrupeds are not permitted. The verses show that we should treat animals with kindness, and that there is no permission that is given in the Vedas for killing, sacrificing or consuming animals. It is only mistranslations that are often deliberately made that are then used to try and justify that the Vedas permit or sanction the slaughter of cows and horses. But no such verses are found when they are not misinterpreted. And there are several examples that are given herein.
Sanjeev discusses the real meaning of Ashwamedha, and of Yajna–sacrifice, and shows that the true meaning has nothing to do with the need for sacrificing animals.
However, there are also verses that state that those who do kill cows should be punished. That is not what some people want to hear, but such verses are there.
Sanjeev also presents how the cow is good for the country and the family, and is most useful in many ways. He discusses all the reasons why there should be a stop to cow killing, and how the country can get along without it just fine.
It also nullifies all the liberal arguments that are presented against a ban on beef and cow killing. So this gives you plenty of thoughtful arguments that you can use against those who try to make a case that we cannot do without the consumption of beef, and, thus, killing the cow.
It presents all the arguments that every Hindu should know to defend the reasons why there is no need for a meat industry based on killing the cow, and that we can, indeed, uphold Dharmic principles to make the world a better place for everyone.
Furthermore, what is great about it is that this book does not take long to read, and is available in both paperback and Kindle Ebook.
