Is this a Fact ? Obviously, it's not. But it can seen as one of the eternal desire of mankind to reach the Supreme Soul.
There are many rituals in Hinduism which involve a Cow. The one where a person wants to cross the mythical river Vaitarani with the help of a cow, involves the person walking in the ritual, with the tail of the cow in his hand.
I've a cow in my home as well. We lovingly call it Radha. Radha means Prosperous. And it is also believed that a House with a Cow is Prosperous . In contentment, resources, materialism and spirituality.

Namaskar -- a traditional Indian greeting or gesture of respect, made by bringing the palms together before the face or chest and bowing, has become a global greeting now. More than Hinduism, it's the Buddhism which can be credited for its proliferation.
The great virtue of Namaskar, if done in the proper way (with a sense of surrender accompanied by humble bowing down), is that it's a total surrender of one's ego while greeting the person in front of you. If the greeting is reciprocated the same way, then it's the ultimate experience. But, even if it doesn't, still it's a greet exercise for internal cleansing. In Indian rural traditions, it's often said that namaskar is not for the person in front of you, it's actually for the Supreme Power which created us and which regulates us.
A Wisdom, often shared by Sadguru Jaggi,
whenever someone asked him the Meaning of Namaskar or Namaste. According to Sadguru, the moment you bow down with your palms together before your chest or face, you surrender the human desire to judge the person in front of you. The moment you give away any desire to judge the person, you greet him for his/her soul, which is always divine.
That's why, namaskar is a permanent Fixture at my Yoga Centre, Tapovan, Laxman Jhula, Rishikesh .

Every Religion or Faith claims that its believers will have better quality of life. In simple, they claim that the belief itself will end the sorrows and bring happiness. Is this True?
Lets not debate this. As many Sorrows and Happiness are part of Life. And believer or not , everyone has to go through his/her share of the two.
According to ISKCon, the International Society of Krishna Consciousness : Even a believer of Krishna, will go through the same cycles of Life; that's the Cycles of Happiness and Sorrow. Thus Krishna doesn't make the Life of his believer, the bed of flowers. What the submission to Krishna, as Supreme Lord, does is: It help the believer tide over the Unhappiness , better than others. In simple the faith on God or believing in some religion or faith helps the individual to face the lows in a better way.
I think, this can be applied to any faith or religion across the planet. A recent study also proves os: Faith in God helps a person manage unhappiness in a better way.
