Vaijayanti Gaushala

Cows are distinctive in diverse ways .Vedas says cow was not created by Brahma ji though the whole creation is indebted to him. Cow and Ox came out from a yagan kunda at the behest of Vasus. Cows are always adjudged to be sacred. Sanatanan Dhram preaches divergent form of adoration. Reverence to GOMATA is one of such forms, though it is more prodigious as it is bestowing special consciousness in us to take care of the cow as our mother. The cow is more, it represents life. Honoring and worshiping a cow inspires in people the rectitude of gentleness and love. The cow takes nothing but grass and water while it gives us milk - just as a saint takes a little of our time and in return gives us his spiritual wisdom. Mother Earth is also represented through cow as Earth also takes in a little and provides us with abundant. Gausewa invokes motherly traits of tenderness, generosity and love. We may worship the Divine in any form we choose and God responds in kind. Lord Krishna says ‘In whatever form people relate to Me, I respond in the same form.’ Cows and Krishna have always been together, he keeps unlimited, transcendental surabhi cows.

When he shows his benignity towards earth, Lord Krishna brings a replica of Vrindavan with him, and he spends his childhood tending cows and calves while playing in the pasturing grounds with His friends. His example shows the importance of cows to human society, the practical benefits of caring for them, and the advantages of an agrarian frugality based on cooperation between man and cows. Apart from this Cows are considered to be the receivers of the auspicious rays from all heavenly constellations. Cows receive the blessings of all the gods as all the gods reside inside cows. GOMATA is the only divine living being that bears asaryu ketu nadi (vein) which produces gold salts in her blood. These salts miraculously cure diseases and infection through milk and other fluids. Maharaj Shri is a strong proponent of gausewa. His homily is to take care of the cow as a family member, as a mother - GOMATA (the most vital family member). As a mother is always tending to the needs of her children in a same way GOMATA is always in the process of giving us her blessings in form of milk.

“Sarve devaah sthita dehe, sarva devamayeehi gaou” means that all the deities dwell in the body of a cow. Thus she is as holy as the deities. Anusasana Parva of the Mahabharata states how Gomata stands to be revered with her various elements.

The vrindavan gaushala was anchored by H.H. Sri Sribhuti Krishna Goswami ji Maharaj under vaijayanti Sewa Sansthan Trust. Vaijayanti ashram always fostered Gausewa. It was under his eloquent and soulful leadership that a proper shelter was built at Gyan gudri vrindavan. His devotion towards Gausewa was unceasing. When there were surges in vrindavan he toiled for saving the gaumata and in his endeavor of doing so left him infected by polluted waters causing H.H. Sri Sribhuti krishna Goswami ji Maharaj to enter into his Nitya Lila (on 15th Oct, 2010). In accordance with the traditions of Santana dharam H.H .Sri Pundrik Goswami ji Maharaj perpetuates and guides a gaushala in virndavan. Maharaj Shri is also involved in lot of other exploits for serving the gaumata .Many vrindvan Krishna cows are sheltered and nurtured in the gaushala in heart of vrindavan Gyan Gudri. With regards to the Gausewa massive efforts are generated by H.H. Sri Pundrik Ji Maharaj. Maharaj Shri is involved with lot of organizations for serving GOMATA .Even during his Kathas (lectures) a definite prominence is laid on Gausewa. Maharaj Shri is a fervid adherent towards world largest Gaushala - Shri Pathmeda Godham. In his constant observance -Gausewa is considered sarvopari (सर्वोपरि ) by Maharaj Shri. In his efforts to promote Gausewa - gaushalas are also nurtured and envisioned in various parts of the country - Amritsar, Jalandhar , Jaipur and Ludhiana to name a few . Following his persistent yearning for gausewa , Maharaj Shri has endorsed the idea of celebrating Gopashtmi (8 th November ) every year as WORLD COW DAY.
