WHY COWS ARE IMPORTANT
Cow protection is essential for human society. Even Lord Krishna Himself says that cows are especially dear to Him, He is known as Gopal and Govinda and eternally grazes cow in Vrindavan. Srila Prabhupada also instructed us how important it is to protect the cows because cow is a mother and gives miracle food milk. Just by maintaining cows one can live a very natural and prosperous life.

OUR ETERNAL DHARMA
Human civilization means to advance the cause of brahminical culture, and to maintain it, cow protection is essential. There is a miracle in milk, for it contains all the necessary vitamins to sustain human physiological conditions for higher achievements. Brahminical culture can advance only when man is educated to develop the quality of goodness, and for this there is a prime necessity of food prepared with milk, fruits and grains.

HOW CAN I SERVE?
According to Vedic civilization, cow protection is a very important duty of the human society. Everyone of us can contribute to it in whatever way is possible for us. It is wonderful if you can visit the Goshala and serve the cows directly or donate for their maintenance but you can also serve the cows simply by following the news of the Goshala, learning more about the cows and sharing that knowledge with others.

The bull helps in the agricultural process of producing grain, etc., and thus in one sense the bull is the father of humankind, whereas the cow is the mother, for she supplies milk to human society. A civilized man is therefore expected to give all protection to the bulls and cows. SB 3.5.7, Purport
