What does Gaumata eat? Why is it important to you?
Insights from Bansi Gir Gaushala
15 February, 2020 by
Vedic Gopalan is really about looking after Gaumata from the highest spiritual consciousness and following a set of protocols for the best spiritual, subtle and physical benefits. We have written about this extensively earlier (see the article 'The long journey that leads to the creation of Gir Ahinsak Gau Ghee') while detailing the practices at Bansi Gir Gaushala. In general, from a very practical point of view, Vedic Gopalan is not much different from humanity's approach towards Motherhood in general. Practices such as 'dohan' (where the calf can have a fair share of milk), not getting rid of older non-lactating or male Gomatas who do not give milk and undertaking daily havans help to keep the Gaumatas satisfied and happy. In this blog, we shall detail the dietary aspects of looking after Gaumata.
