Ghee is the hallmark of traditional sattvic cooking. It represents the culmination of all the efforts from rising a cow to offering the ghee. It is the most auspicious product in worship, ritual, and cooking.
Milk and milk products such as ghee play an important role in Sattvic diet. In India, cows are milked everyday and fresh milk is used throughout the day. In some homes cows are milked twice a day by hand. The energy of a cow raised lovingly and milked with tremendous patience is highly sattvic.
