We at Nirvi Cow Shelter aim at creating an innovative model of providing a platform to the farmer & cow devotee in helping each other to rear the gentle animal known as ‘Cow’. Let’s take a step towards creating a more conscious & inclusive society; a step in converting our dairies back to gaushalas.
In recent years due to the steady rise in overall input cost – raw material, labour, transportation, it has become economically very stressful to rear cattle especially when the cow is not giving milk during dry period or during pregnancy & during her old age when she is not capable of giving milk.
In Hindu religion, Cow is considered pious/sacred & has been given the status of mother but due to our fast paced living & due to the nature of our dwellings, everybody can’t keep a cow at home even if he/she would like to do so.
दानानामपि सर्वेषां गवां दानं प्रशस्यते । गावः श्रेष्ठाः पवित्राश्च पावनं ह्येतदुत्तमम् ॥ (Mahabharata, Anushasana Parva 83-3) Donation of cows is superior to all others. Cows are supreme and sacred.
We would like to provide the devotee an opportunity to own/adopt a cow and taking the services of Nirvi Cow Shelter to keep that cow & rear her on devotee’s behalf.
It would not only help in decreasing the economic stress of the farmer but would also help in spreading religious prosperity.
For his/her generous charity, the devotee would have access to the following things –
- Pure cow milk
- Facility of Gau puja on birthdays or on auspicious days like Shri Krishna Janmashtmi, Govardhan Puja, Gopashtami etc.
- Weekend retreat to meet & greet your extended family(your cow).
