Gaushala

Gaushala

Kamadhenu or the Divine Cows are an integral part of the temples and their maintenance is one of the prime activities. In India, most of the Vaishnava temples have their own Goshala. Bhagavad Gita tells us the importance of being in “Sattva guna”, worshiping cow increases our sattva guna. Drinking cow milk blesses us with divine awareness and fills our body with transcendental qualities. The goal and objective of establishing such a Gaushala are to spread the importance of cow and lay emphasis on the protection of cows.

Gaushala project was established in the year of 2014. Currently, there are 50 milch cows, housed in a facility behind the temple complex, which is kept ideally clean by a team of four trained dairymen. Cows bear their first calf and start giving milk at 30 months. They are allowed to roam around freely in a corral so that they can stretch their limbs and get some exercise. The milk from these cows is offered to the Lord as well as used in a variety of forms to prepare delicious offerings.
