Srila Prabhupada

THE AMBASSADOR FROM THE SPIRITUAL WORLD

“Cow is the source of progress and prosperity. In many ways it is superior to one’s mother”.

– Mahatma Gandhi

“One can demolish all his sinful acts by simply offering respect to the cows”.

– Skanda Purana

“Dhenunam asmi kamadhuk — Among cows I am the wish fulfilling (Kamdhenu or Surabhi) cow”.

Bhagavad Gita

cintāmaṇi-prakara-sadmasu kalpa-vṛkṣa
lakṣāvṛteṣu surabhir abhipālayantam
lakṣmī-sahasra-śata-sambhrama-sevyamānam
govindam ādi- puruṣam tam aham bhajāmi

I worship Govinda, the primeval Lord, the first progenitor who is tending the cows, yielding all desire, in abodes built with spiritual gems, surrounded by millions of purpose trees, always served with great reverence and affection by hundreds of thousands of lakṣmīs or gopīs.

Sri Brahma Samhita

namo brahmanya-devaya go-brahmana-hitaya ca
jagad-dhitaya krsnaya govindaya namo namah

My Lord, you are the well-wisher of the cows and the brahmanas, and You are the well-wisher of the entire human society and the of the entire world.

– Vishnu Puran

Donation of cows is superior to all others. Cows are supreme and sacred.

Vedic Scripture

 “adau mata guru-patni, brahmani raja-patnika dhenur dhatri tatha prthvi saptaita matarah”

Real mother & Guru-patni, the wife of spiritual master . Brahmani, the wife of a brahmana, and Raja-patnika, the queen. Dhenu, the cow, Dhatri, nurse, as well as the Earth. Earth is mother because she gives us so many things like fruits, flowers, grains for our eating. Mother gives milk & food for eating. Cow gives us milk. So cow is also one of our Mothers.

“Panca-gavya, the five products received from the cow, namely milk, yogurt, ghee, cow dung and cow urine are required in yajna ceremonies including the installation of deities. Cow urine and dung are uncontaminated , and since even the urine and dung of a cow are important, we can just imagine how important the animal is for human civilization. Therefore the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Krsna, directly advocated “go-raksya”, the protection of cows”

Cows and Krishna have always been together. In His original form in the spiritual world, Krishna is a cowherd boy in the agricultural community of Goloka (“cow planet”) Vrindavan, where He keeps unlimited, transcendental surabhi cows.

When He descends to earth, 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 economy based on cooperation between man and cows.

Krishna established the original economic system, varnashrama-dharma, for the spiritual and material progress of all living beings. Protected cows are a major component of this system; bulls and oxen till the fields, and cows give milk. Cows are are considered one of the mothers of humankind because cow’s milk—when properly prepared—is perfectly suited to maintaining human life. Milk can be made into a wide variety of preparations, such as yogurt and butter, which are also essential ingredients for use in the ceremonial worship of Krishna in His transcendental Deity form.

In His famous book of instructions for humankind, the Bhagavad-gita, Krishna mentions cow protection as one of the prime duties of any civilized society. The Bible also tells us that cow-killing is as punishable as killing a human being.

Because Krishna loves the cows, His devotees not only protect them but also see to their comfort, a practice that has spiritual, psychological, and practical material benefits.

For thousands of years people have understood that for a cow to do her best job of providing milk she must be peaceful and happy. In this century, scientists discovered that the cow produces a hormone called oxytocin that helps her “let down” her milk. If the cow is frightened or annoyed, the oxytocin is shut off and the milk flow stops. This means that human beings must be well behaved around cows to get the most milk.
