Bestower of prolific blessing - GOSHAALA
The concept of the sacred cow as a giver of abundance is common in the Hindu school of thought. In today's context, we need to show compassion to all forms of life (jeeva karunyam), and not be exploitative for selfish ends. The Goshaala demonstrates this philosophy.
To cater to the needs of the Goshala, agathikeerai (sesbania grandi fl ora) and grass are grown. Feeding this to the cows is believed to get rid of negative karmas of one's past lives. The cow is representative of the much revered celestial cow Kamadhenu, giver of abundance in the Hindu pantheon. The benefi t of nurturing a cow is the same as worshipping Kamadhenu.
The cow's products are not only an integral part of the food served here, but also used for medicinal purposes. Any food made at the peedam is therefore veritably an equivalent of the Divine nectar (amrutham) which wipes out diseases.
