Krishna is kind to those who save and protect cows. He is delighted by any effort to serve a cow, and He never even forgets us if we benefit a cow.
As an animal, the cow is lovable, simple, and gentle, and we can serve her by buying grain for her and feed her every time we get an opportunity. We can also donate a cow to an institution where they are treated with utmost care.
Mahatma Gandhi once said, “The cow is the source of progress and prosperity. In many ways it is superior to one’s mother.”
Since 1969, the New Vrindaban Community has been protecting and serving her resident cows with a similar standard to what Lord Krishna himself practiced five thousand years ago. They are lovingly cared for throughout their happy life and are provided with everything they need.
We protect a herd of 60 cows out of which 8 give milk. The rest are non-dairy cows, such as calves, old cows, or bulls.
Our cows are very healthy and loving, and our older cows need special care and love. We have a staff of devotees who take care of the cows very nicely. The cows have a special feed that gives them good health. Our cowherd boy Anandavidya chants the Bhagavad-gita when he milks the cows, and our cows lovingly offer their milk.
By adopting a cow, you are giving the cow the necessary care to ensure a healthy, happy, and long life. By taking care of a cow, the cow becomes a part of your family. By lovingly remembering a cow in this way, Krishna remembers us and protects us.
Cows depend on us for protection. It is our duty to protect a cow!
