Thus our life will turn out to be better in the days or years to come. Feeding Dogs, taking care of pets and helping them lead a peaceful life can be a blessing for life time”

Why Cows were considered sacred by Ancient indians :
Since ancient times in india, Cows were considered to be Sacred because of their motherly nature. Cow has always been a “Giver” to man kind.
1.Cows milk is consumed by millions of people poor and rich.
2.In India Cows were used for tilling the fields by the farmers for hundreds of thousands of years.
3.Even Cow dung is used as a source of fuel and natural fertilizer.
4. Cows were also Symbol of wealth – A person is considered wealthy based on the number of cows he owns and the other way to see it is that hundreds of Deities lives in the body of cow and hence the cow itself is a worshipped as “Kamadhenu”. According to Atharva veda , Cow’s body is represented by various devas and other subjects.
5. Mahatma Gandhi has said ” I worship it and I shall defend its worship against the whole world,” and that, “The central fact of Hinduism is cow protection.”

I have personally experienced visions of Cows as if i am applying sacred kumkum ( holy red power given in temple of goddess ) to many cows. I have also seen cows eyes overflowing with love and compassion in some visions. I am not asking you to do pooja to cow as its done in Temples in india. Only when we get opportunity we can witness such rituals.
My humble request is after reading the greatness of cows in StarSai.in please use all the opportunity to feed a cow or a dog ( any animal,pets ) or a bird , give them shelter or any help which is a blessing for your own good life and that of your children for the good deeds you do reaches your children.
Kamadhenu (Sanskrit: कामधेनु Kāmadhenu), also known as Surabhi (सुरभि Surabhī), is a divine bovine-goddess described in Hindu mythology as the mother of all cows. Shes like a Wish fulfilling Kalpataru tree. She is a miraculous “cow of plenty” who can give her owner whatever he desires. She is often portrayed as the mother of other cattle and the eleven Rudras.
