Sri Gokulam Goshala
Cows have always been regarded as a holy being and Goddess in our tradition. In our own houses, not far beyond a generation or so, every home owned cows to procure milk for daily Abhishekam for Gods at home and for our household needs. As our lives became busier and more and more people moved to cities for occupation, having cows at our homes have become far from reality now-a-days. Unfortunately, in our holy nation, when these cows become old and stop giving milk, they are considered a burden and sent for slaughtering, the most sinful act.
Protection of Cows Go Samrakshanam has become the need of the day to revive the nation from the downfall from these sinful deeds and restore prosperity, peace and harmony. Towards this noble cause, a Goshala is functioning inside Sri VittalRukminiSamsthan premises. A unique feature of this Goshala is that the Cows are of Sri Brindhavan, Sri Govardhan, Sri Dwaraka origin and descendants of cows grazed by Lord Sri Krishna Himself. Hence this Goshala is rightly named Sri Gokulam. Devoted food, shelter, water, electricity and medical facilities are made available for this Goshala.
With close to 500 cows in this Goshala, the cost of food and other maintenance has been on the rise. Bhakthas can contribute towards the noble cause by participating on the different seva schemes available. Bhakthas can also earmark their birthdays, anniversaries, remembrance days of their forefathers or any other special day and make them auspicious by participating in the specific day’s GoSamrakshanam for all these cows.
New Goshala Construction
We are in the process of constructing one more new ‘state-of-art’ Goshala in Sri VittalRukminiSamsthan as the number of Cows increased and we need to serve them better. The total cost of this Goshala Construction is 1 Crore. We accept donations for this construction and request Bhakthas to donate liberally for this noble cause. 80G is also available for this donation.
Latest Update – The earth and foundation work is almost complete. The current work that is planned is erecting the shelter for the cows to reside in. The cost of the shelter is Rs. 18 Lakhs
