Ghee is becoming quite the Superfood - thanks to "Bulletproof coffee"!? As with most such trends in the mainstream wellness world, a deeper context to its potential superpowers and ill effects is often missing. This motivates us to launch the Glory of Ghee Knowledge Circles, where InSightful teachers/experts will share their Ayurvedic-Yogic-Tantric perspectives on ghee and all connected with the "Source" - special cow breeds, milk, therapeutic and spiritual properties, and much more! Upcoming circle... 

Sunday, Oct. 17th at 9:00pm ET (USA) /

“Cow ghee promotes memory, intellect, power of digestion, semen, ojas, kapha and fat. It alleviates vata, pitta, toxic conditions, insanity, consumption and fever. It is the best of all the unctuous substances.”[1]  

[1] Caraka-Samhita. Translated by Sharma RK and Bhagwan Dash, 7th ed. Varanasi, India Chowkhama Sanskrit Series Office, 2002: 537 Sutrasthana 27/232)

In Ayurveda, ghee is considered to be one of the most sāttvik foods and forms an important ingredient in Ayurvedic medicine and diet, given its nutritional and medicinal value.  Ghṛta meaning ‘sprinkled’ or ‘to shine.’ In mainstream wellness, ghee is megaphoned to be an all pervading superfood… use it however, whenever, whomever, whichever way! However, in Ayurveda and the ancient wisdom, anything is nectar or poison. So the key question and inquiry:  Is it truly sāttvik? How, when, why is it sāttvik or not?
