The quintessence of broad based Indian culture rests on twin objective of humanity, peace
and prosperity. This aspect is abundantly represented by the Holy Cow which is taken as a
personification of fulfiller of all wishes ‘Kamdhenu’ for the humans. The holy books Vedas
Shastras which is time immemorial lends credence to this pious belief.
The ‘Gau Mata’ or the ‘Holy Cow’ enables not only ones’ attainment of worldly material pursuits
through the path of Dharma (Pious practices) Artha (material wealth) Kama (desires) but also
enables a person to achieve salvation or the ultimate bliss and happiness on heavenly abode Moksha (the eternal heavenly peace).
It is pity to observe as a result of ignorance from many corners cows are treated as a mere animal and as a result they are neglected
and allowed to wander. The holy cows are witnessed by many of us, eating paper and rubbish. This is despite the everlasting and
inescapable bond between a human and a cow.
Cow is a national resource and protection of cow is our bounden duty.
According to Indian culture, praying holy cow is given utmost importance by Vedas, Puranas.According to the Indian holy book,
the Holy Cow is an embodiment of 33 Crore Gods. In south of India,the cow dung/urine is treated with respect as these
are material ingredients in making of “Panch Kavya” which is used for purification during Upanayanam. ( Janau ) and Marriage
ceremonies. The cow dung is also used to prepare Vibhooti which adores the forehead of Vedic Scholars.
The back of mother Cow – Lord Bramha – The creater
Neck of mother Cow – Lord Vishnu – The protector
Forehead – Lord Rudra or Shiva – The Eliminator
In the noble cause to give protection to holy Cows, Shree Vaishnav Agarsain Gaushala,
Agroha has sheds and large Acres of lands for
grazing as well as for growing animal feed (green fodder)with an hospital attached. Ambulance with hydraulic systems to rescue wounded
cows from the accident site or to transport them for medical facility is also available.
The activities have to compound and it is possible only when pious donors come forward with generous contributions in the endeavor.
“A mother feeds a child for six months whereas the holy cow feeds us and our family throughout the life”.
The holy cow’s protection should be ensured so that we can invoke the blessings of the celestial Gods for peace and prosperity of
humanity. In order to facilitate such process of invocation of blessings, Shree Vaishnav Agarsain Gaushala has made arrangements
so that willing donors can come forward for the noble cause. The service to this also costs in terms of money, apart from voluntary
service of people.The monthly expenses of Shree Vaishnav Agarsain Gaushala has increased from Rs.15.00 lacs to Rs.17.00 lacs.
In order to make this institution self propelling and self generating, the Gaushala has also taken up the process of proper
breeding of the cows to increase fertility of the cows and the animal waste can be used for fertilizers. The Gaushala is making full
efforts in this direction including exploring the possibility of its waste being used in medicinal fields.
You are kindly aware that such a noble cause is only nurtured by generous donors of religious institutions and social organizations.
Thus it is expected that persons of your stature and resource would certainly come forward to assist in the endeavor.
