Gho Rakshanam

The task which ought to be done collectively by the entire society of people is to make it happen that not a single cow should go to a slaughterhouse and should be fed to a full stomach and be made to live in clean sheds under hygienic conditions. For this, shelters for unyielding cows should be set up at many places and be maintained well by the people. The unyielding cows, whose owners are unwilling to feed them any longer and are sending them to the slaughterhouses, should be bought and protected in these shelters. If some owners are uncultured, they might bargain a rate for the skin and meat of the cows. We should patiently explain the Punyam and compassion involved in this work and should coax them to sell the cows for a fair price or for free. Many owners might be really poor and suffering and it’s certainly not fair to expect them to part with the cows for free of cost. Whatever the situation, not a single cow should be left, to be sent to a slaughterhouse just because it involves paying a higher price. If such a thought as “buying the cows, setting up shelters and feeding them – all these are extremely expensive and moreover maintaining the old cows are strenuous and painstaking” crops up, the answer should be that considering the importance of this duty both money and physical strain are trivial and unimportant. – Jagadguru Chandrasekharendra Saraswathy Swamigal

Inspired by Mahaperiyava’s words, we rescue gomathas, rishabams and calves.

Periyava Gosala

Our goshala currently houses 197 cows and calves – all rescued under various circumstances, currently healthy and nourished. We are fortunate to have staff members that are very kind to the cows and love them like family. This is not only a goshala, it has other animals too – some pigs, dogs, and ducks – all rescued during cow rescue events.
