Puja, Havans In Rajasthan To Save Cows From Lumpy Skin Disease
Seers have been performing “yagyas” for the health of cows and other cattle while veterinarians have been administering vaccinations to protect them from lumpy skin disease. On September 13, a “puja” and “havan” were held at the Jaipur Municipal Corporation Heritage offices, and several council members, including Mayor Munesh Gurjar, took part.
The mayor even stated during the presentation that she would go barefoot and would not accept a formal greeting at any occasion until the illness subsided. A 35-kilometer drive from Jaipur on the Jaipur-Delhi National Highway, the Om Trishakti Ashram is hosting an eight-day “Gau Pusthi Mahayagya” under the direction of Mahant Narendra Das.
On September 15, the Panch Kundiya Mahayagya began, and it will last till September 22. According to Das, a large number of people have flocked to the ashram to take part in the yagya and wait in line to make an offering.
He claimed that the participants in the yagya are devotees of several religions. The Nirjara Mahadev temple in Jaipur recently held a “Gayatri Mahayagya” and a havan. Gayatri Mantra was said 1.25 lakh times, according to Mahant Ram Manohar Joshi, to protect the cows from the illness.
The Animal Husbandry Department reports that 13,02,907 animals have been affected with lumpy skin disease, and 59,027 animals have died as a result. The state’s 10,80,967 cattle have all received vaccinations.
