In Vedic tradition, cows are worshipped as mothers. According to scriptures, there are seven mothers: atma-mata (one's own mother) guroh patni (the wife of one's teacher) brahmani (the wife of a brahmana) raja-patnika (the wife of the king) dhenu (the cow) dhatri (the nurse) and prthvi (the Earth) are all considered mothers. Just as the child feeds on the breast milk of the mother, human society takes milk from the cow.
In Vedic society, the economy was based on agriculture and cow protection. Five thousand years ago, when Krishna was personally present on this planet, there was enough milk, butter and curd. When there were festivals, the cowherd men would throw yogurt, milk, clarified butter and water upon the bodies of one another. Everyone had a sufficient stock of milk and other milk-products. Sri Krishna is glorified as the protector of the cows and brahminical culture (go-brahmana-hitayaca) The Brahma Samhita describes Lord Krishna to be tending the surabhi cows in His spiritual abode of Goloka Vrindavana, which is surrounded by millions of desire fulfilling trees. Brhat Parasara Samhita states: If a person feeds the cow with grass and water every day he will get the benefit of performing ashwamedha sacrifice. In Vedas it is mentioned that all the demigods reside in the body of the cow. So the Hindus worship the cow.
Sanathana Dharma Parirakshana Trust started a Goshala in the year 2012, housed in a facility behind the temple complex, with an idea that the milk from these cows is offered to the Lord not only as it is, but also used in a variety of forms to prepare delicious offerings at the temple. Those interested in contributing towards cow protection can sponsor the maintenance of the goshala in Bangalore as well as the retired cows and bulls at the site office at Shankara Agraharam, The Vedic Village.
