Krishna is kind with those who save cows and protect them. He is delighted by any effort done to serve a cow and he never even forgets us if we benefit cow.
As an animal cow is very lovable, simple and gentle, what we can do to serve her is we can buy grain for her, feed her every time we get an opportunity and we can donate the cow to an institution where they are treated with utmost care.
Mahatma Gandhi once said” Cow is the source of progress and prosperity. In many ways it is superior to one’s mother”.
Since 1967, the New Vrindaban Community has been protecting and serving her resident cows with a similar standard to what Lord Krishna himself practiced five thousand years ago. Lovingly cared for through their happy life, they are provided everything they need.
We presently protect a herd of 45 cows out of which 8 are milk giving. The rest are non milk giving cows such as calves, old cows or bulls.
Our cows are very healthy and loving. But our older cows need more special care and love. We have a nice staff of devotees who take care of the cows very nicely. The cows are fed a special feed which gives them good health. Our cowherd boy Anandavidya chants the Bhagavad-Gita when he milks the cow and our cows lovingly give the milk.
By adopting a cow you are giving them the necessary care which will give them the necessary. By taking care of a cow the cow becomes a part of your family. By lovingly remembering a cow Krishna remembers us and protects us.
Cows depend on us for protection. It is our duty to protect a cow!
