How is it made?
Vibhuti is traditionally made from naturally grazed desi cows’ dung. The Sastric – Agamic formula of a kundam is constructed for sphutam of dung balls for this. Palayakottai Pattagar Kangyam Cow brand is being launched for the two -pronged purpose of value addition and creating distinction between real and fake Vibhutis.
