In Hinduism, your good deeds and your prayers bear fruit when you earn good virtue (or Punya).

Similarly, doing certain things like insulting others can destroy these virtues that you have earned in your lifetime, and can reverse the effect of all the alms-deeds that you might have performed.

Insulting the following three things, in particular, is bound to destroy your virtue.

1. Cow

The cow is the most important animal in Hinduism, so much so that it has been given the status next to god. In Hindi, we call cow as “Gaay Maata” or mother cow. It is also called Kamdhenu. In fact, it is not only cow’s milk which is considered to be the elixir, but its urine even is a sacred substance.

Hence, insulting a cow is considered to be a sin, and is synonymous to the insult of one’s own mother. In scriptures, there is no way to correct the harm done by insulting a cow.

2. Basil plant or Tulsi

Just like the cow is the most sacred animal in Hinduism, Tulsi or Basil is the most sacred plant. It is also worshipped. Even while praying gods and goddesses, the presence of Tulsi is mandatory. Gods don’t accept the prayer in the absence of this sacred plant.

Hence, insulting the basil plant is synonymous to insulting the god itself. It is also punishable and unredeemable.

3. River Ganga

The water of this sacred river, however, is being polluted recklessly now, and this also counts as an insult, which makes people sinner.
