DJJS organized Gau Pujan & Yajna on the auspicious occasion of Gopashtami at Divya Dham Ashram, Delhi

November 14, 2021

On the auspicious occasion of Gopashtami 2021, Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan under the banner of its Indian Cow Breed Improvement & Conservation Program – Kamdhenu, organized a spectacular Gau Pujan [Cow Worship] & Vedic Yajna [Fire Sacrifice] at Divya Dham Ashram, Delhi. The aim of the event was to revive & reiterate the Glory of Indian Cow & revere the all-nurturing mother for the boons she bestows upon mankind.  The event was attended by many esteemed dignitaries & devotees.  

Indian Cow is not considered as an animal, rather Vedas have hailed her as Mother.  Divya Guru Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, head & founder of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan says - Service to Mother Cow is the foundation of Holistic Development, backbone of agricultural system, factor of economic growth, and root of healthy life. Being an anchor of the said 3-tiers of sustainability, Indian Cow is hailed as a mother, universally. Bearing this in mind, DJJS Kamdhenu Program is focused on preservation, breed improvement and re-establishing the value of Indian Cow as pivot of any ideal sustainable society.

Worship of Mother Cow dates back to the Vedic times. Lord Krishna, in His role as a Shepherd boy, strongly presented the importance of Mother Cow & motivated the society to revere her. The pious festival of Gopashtami is attributed to care and service to Mother Cow as established by Shri Krishna and is also a moment to reconnect with Mother Nature at large.  Organizing Vedic Yajna on the occasion severed both the aforementioned purposes, informed DJJS Representative.  

A gamut of traditional Indian rituals was followed in the pujan. The divine vibrations of Vedic Mantras recited during Yajna reverberated the ashram and thus created a sacred & serene atmosphere. The spiritual message behind the rituals performed, were unveiled during the Yajna which inspired attendees towards righteous path & motivated them to serve Mother Cow.

Gopashtami celebration is an annual affair at DJJS Kamdhenu Gaushalas based in Jatkhod Modh, Delhi; Nurmahal, Punjab; Saharsa, Bihar & Latur, Maharashtra. These are not mere cow-care homes but research centers working on breed improvement & conservation of key varieties of Desi Cow namely, Sahiwal, Gir, Tharparkar, Rathi & Hariyana.
