May I ask where we can get pure authentic vibuthi and ghee from original native cow treated with immense love? I would like to light a lamp, but wish to only use the pure oil or oils (some light a blend of oils but those oils must be pure too). Whichever is best for karthigai deepam.

If you also have a post on its proper making please post the link to your response.

There is an organic dairy and creamery here in Tiruvannamalai that has cows and sells off organically produced milk,curd and ghee. You can read about the Dairy and get full contact details and prices at this link here.


The story about the dairy and how it was set up is very nice.

I don't have an answer to your other questions . . . however Govinda (who is the owner of the dairy) is local to the villages around Tiruvannamalai and may be able to give you additional information.

Hope it works out.
