Ghee for the children

Ghee is essential for its countless benefits. Village children today are on a very poor, dry diet because of poverty. Giving ghee daily with their school midday meal is a very good intervention. A friend offered support for that expense, and the children in school all have a spoon of ghee daily with their spartan midday meal of rice and a watery dal or a watery vegetable.

Ashtanga Hrudayam - Sutra Sthanam -  Ch 5. 


शस्तं धीस्मृतिमेधाग्निबलायुः शुक्रचक्षुषाम्
स्नेहानामुत्तमं शीतं वयसः स्थापनं परम्
सहस्रवीर्यं विधिभिर्घृतं कर्मसहस्रक्रुत्

1. improving intelligence;
