"Our Goal is to serve Shri Shri Krishna Balaram Ji  with the milk of life time protected cows in Vrindavan Dham"

In 1976, Srila Prabhupada began the Bhaktivedanta Swami Goshala at the Krishna Blalaram Mandir in Vrindavan. Ramana Reti, the land of soft pleasing sands, is famous as the place where Krishna and Balarama wandered along the banks of the Yamuna river with Their Cows.

In this Goshala, we are trying to serve the noble cause of cow protection in a humble way; Cows, Bulls and Calves are looked after with great care and love. These animals are never sold to slaughter houses or abandoned even when they become old. They are maintained till the end of their lives very happily. The Goshala has provided pure Cows milk to Their Lordships and the devotees since 1976. Beginning with only 10 milking Cows, the herd has grown to more than 300 Cows, Bulls and calves. The Goshala provides loving shelter to all of the animals, and cares for them throughout their lives.
