With most of us living in cities, it may not be practical for us to maintain cows personally, as was the practice of many of our ancestors, but you still can be engaged in this noble service by adopting one of our resident cows. You may donate for one month, one year or lifetime feeding and care.
You can donate for one month, one year or a lifetime of feeding and care. Become a Lifetime Adoption member and we will send you regular updates and photos of your adopted cow.
We have got seven mothers according to Vedic civilization:
ātma-mātā guroḥ patnī
dhenur dhātrī tathā pṛthvī
saptaitā mātaraḥ smṛtāḥ
TRANSLATION: "One's own mother, the wife of the guru, the wife of a brāhmaṇa, the wife of a king, the cow, the nurse, and the earth are known as the seven mothers of a man." - Cāṇakya Paṇḍita - Nīti śāstra
We are indebted to each of our seven mothers. It is our duty to serve them, protect them, and care for them.
“Without protection of cows, brahminical culture cannot be maintained; and without brahminical culture, the aim of life cannot be fulfilled.”
- Srimad-Bhagavatam Canto 8: Chapter 24, Text 5 Purport
