“Gavo Vishwasya Matarah, Vande Gau Mataram!!”
The cows have been considered as pride of our country. It has been said, “The Golden age arrives on the Earth, when the cows are the happiest, but when they are sad, the Black Age establish itself firmly”. If one tends the cows and takes kind care of them, he is considered to be the blessed soul on Earth, as to serve the cows is equivalent to serve the God.
Lord Shri Krishna, in his childhood always ran behind cows, played with them, took supreme care and even made them the part of lucky audience when he played his melodious flute. Our beloved Kanha gave a great message to follow his deeds. The cows which were considered as ‘Narayan’ according to the Hindu Mythology are nowadays looking for mercy. Though, we are living in the world where ‘Necessity is the mother of invention’, yet we need to understand ‘Cow is the mother of unconditional grace’. Our holy mother is now left as ‘just another animal’ on the road. Thus proving, how we have come from Golden to Black Age.
To give out a wakeup call for up-gradation of current situation and to invoke the sense of devotion towards our holy mother, Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS) - a spiritual and non- profit organization, founded and Headed by His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, organized a divine programme of Gau Katha at Gidderbaha, Sri Mukstar, Punjab from 24th -28th August, 2015.
This Gau Katha successfully served its purpose in making audience realize their duty towards Goddess cow, by explaining the importance and benefits this world can derive from the cows. The spiritual discourser of the program, disciple of our revered Gurudev- Sadhvi Garima Bharti Ji beautifully depicted the divine connection between cows and the spirituality. She enlightened the audience through her wise words and cited various meaningful examples of benefits from the cows in the form of nutrients rich milk, gobar, gau-mutra-which possess potential to cure even cancer.
Now, it’s our turn to understand the value of our silent mother, who is silently suffering from a long time. We need to protect the cows first in order to protect our culture. And, re-establishing the dead culture is the greatest deed that can ever be done.
