The Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI) is trying to bring back traditional Vedic culture and encouraging people to celebrate ‘Cow Hug Day’ on February 14th, instead of Valentine’s Day. The board has appealed to cow lovers to celebrate the day with a hug for the cow, which according to them, will bring emotional richness and increase individual and collective happiness.
The board has also condemned the influence of western culture on traditional Vedic culture, which it said is on the verge of extinction. Cow Hug Day is an effort to revive the glory of the ancient Vedic culture and bring back the culture of love and respect for cows.
While hugging a cow may seem like an unusual celebration, it is said to have immense benefits. Cows are believed to be very peaceful, kind, and loving animals and their presence is said to bring peace and serenity to the environment. Hugging them is said to reduce stress, anxiety, and negative energy. It is also said to strengthen one’s bond with nature and increase the sense of oneness.
The Animal Welfare Board of India is encouraging people to celebrate Cow Hug Day and urging them to participate in cow bathing, cow massage, cow feeding, and cow-meditating activities. All of these activities have immense spiritual and physical benefits.
