Drink cow urine in Hinduism – Agni Purana

📖Srimad Bhagavatam 8:811
The land became a person and collected all the drugs and herbs needed for installing the Deity. The cows delivered five products, namely milk, yogurt, ghee, urine and cow dung, and spring personified collected everything produced in spring, during the months of Caitra and Vaisakha [April and May].

  • Pancagavya, the five products received from the cow, namely milk, yogurt, ghee, cow dung and cow urine, are required in all ritualistic ceremonies performed according to the Vedic directions. Cow urine and cow dung are uncontaminated, and since even the urine and dung of a cow are important, we can just imagine how important this animal is for human civilization.

📖Agni Purana 292.1-5
A king should protect cows and brahmins. I shall describe the propitiation of cows [i.e., go-santi]. Cows are sacred and auspicious. The world is sustained by them, Their feces and urine are the excellent destroyers of poverty. Stroking of a cow and the water from its horns would destroy multitudes of sins, The urine and feces of a cow, milk, curd, clarified butter and rocanā (yellow pigment got from a cow) are the six constituents that are excellent and when drunk they would prevent bad dreams etc, (Go) rocana is capable of nullifying poison and demons. One who feeds the cow with a morsel of food would go to heaven. In whose house cows are ill-kept, that person would go to hell.

📖Agni Puran 292:10-11
One should drink hot urine, hot ghee, and hot milk, each one for three days and consume air only for the next three days. This vow known as taptakṛcchra would destroy all sins and confer the world of Brahmā. It is known as śītakṛcchra if done with cold things (as above). It was described by Brahmā. It would yield the world of Brahmā.

📖Agni Puran Chapter 196:8-20
One should worship lord Hari in the (asterism) mrgaśira [mrgaśira?] in (the month of) mārgasīrsa [mārgaśīrsa?] drinking cow’s urine.

📖Mahabharata 13.78
One should never feel any repugnance for the urine and the dung of the cow.
