Cow Shelter (Gau Shala)
"There is no wealth superior to the cow"
Sheltering of old, unproductive and abandoned cows in traditional cow shelters (gaushalas) is an

and we need to take care of our mother goddess.
Simply by eating grass, the cows give us milk. From milk, ghee is produced by which demigods become satisfied. So how can one neglect the cow? Simply by her association, a person becomes purified and by donating cows, one can transfer himself to heaven. There is no wealth superior to the cow. All the demigods reside in different parts of her body. Her milk nourishes human beings. How can such a cow not be worshipable
