Ghee, or clarified butter, has flowed through all aspects of Indian culture for millennia. In India ghee is not only an esteemed article of nourishment but a sacred symbol of auspiciousness and healing. The milk of cows is considered to possess the sap or essence of all plants, and ghee is the essence of milk. In Vedic culture ghee is a central element, an essential offering made to Agni (fire) in all the yagyas (fire rituals). We find its interrelatedness with light and brilliance mentioned in many passages of the Vedas. In fact, the Sanskrit word for ghee is ghritam, which comes from the root ‘ghr’ that means ‘to shine’.
Ghee increases the sattvic (serene, harmonious, balanced) qualities of life, both in ourselves and in the environment. It increases intelligence, refines the intellect and improves memory. It softens the organs and increases the body’s internal juices. Ghee increases ojas, the vital energy that rules our immunity, strength and happiness. Ghee cools the body and balances all the agnis of the body. (Agni is the force of intelligence within each cell, each tissue and every system within the body). Because of its unique penetrating qualities, ghee has the ability to carry a substance, such as herbs etc., deep into all seven dhatus or building blocks of the physical body (plasma, blood, muscle, fat, bone, bone marrow, sexual hormones). Applied to the skin, ghee softens, strengthens and protects the skin. It can help heal bedsores and is effective for many types of skin rashes and also burns.
Although today it may be difficult, do try, if you can, to find a high-quality, organic ghee made in the traditional way, where the milk from healthy cows fed on grass is churned in the old-fashioned way instead of by the process of extrusion used today even on organic farms. Another difference in the way traditional ghee is made in India as compared to in the West, is that they do not let the cream rise to the top and then skim it off but culture the milk with yogurt and, after letting it sit for a few hours, churn the whole milk instead of only the cream. These two factors, amongst others, all effect the subtle qualities of the ghee.
And finally, when we light a candle or oil lamp an etheric sphere is created in the space around the flame, which enhances receptivity. This is all the more so when pure vegetable oils are burned, and especially when ghee is burned.
“Tongue of the gods,” “navel of immortality.” We will proclaim the name of ghee; We will sustain it in this sacrifice by bowing low. These waves of ghee flow like gazelles before the hunter… Streams of ghee caress the burning wood. Agni, the fire, loves them and is satisfied. – Rig Veda
