“Gho Matha is the abode of all Devathas. All gods reside in her. She is Goddess Mahalakshmi. On one hand, we worship cow as a deity. On the other hand, we send her for slaughter. This hypocrisy is a great blemish on all of us. Till such time we do not protect cow’s well until it naturally passes away, we are unfit to call ourselves Hindus. Government, at best, can only pass rule against cow slaughter but it is up to all of us to take care of her well-being. Ishwara is watching every move of us. We are bound to offer at least a handful of grass to Gho Matha every day. There is NO greater Punniyam (Meritorious deed) than doing Gho Dhanam or Gho Samrakshanam.” – Pujya Shri HH Kanchi Maha Periyava

“The Central fact of Hinduism is Cow Protection. Hindus will not be judged by their tilaks, not by the correct chanting of mantras, not by their pilgrimages, not by their most punctilious observance of caste rules but by their ability to protect the cow.” - Mahatma Gandhiji
Join Hands When It Matters THE MOST – Protect Mother Cow from Slaughter
What is Gho Matha Samrakshanam?
Gho Matha Samrakshanam means “Cow Protection”. HH Periyava tells us it is actually the other way around whereby Gho Matha nurtures us big time right from our infant days, providing us with various essential Vedic & Dairy products. We pay the merchant for cow’s products. The merchant sucks the cow high & dry, treats it miserably before sending her for slaughter. We should do our best to stop this. We all OWE a great debt to Gho Matha that needs be paid back with great reverence for generations.
Why is Gho Matha Samrakshanam ‘Extremely Critical’ at this time?
Bharatha Desam is the #1 beef exporter in the world, something we all should be terribly ashamed of. If the status quo continues, cows, and all its related breeds will become extinct in no time.
Not too long ago, every home had a few cows and life was very peaceful. Urban, Corporate, Western Culture, Grazing lands turning into multi-story buildings, and Migration left Gho Matha’s lurching horribly. In the long run, more than Gho Matha’s we will be the sore losers, huge in fact, if we do not act immediately.
Where and How to Start?
Our mission should be to ‘Enable and Empower Ghosala’s to rescue more cows from slaughter’. Cow Protection movement should spread like wild fire, flourish, and prosper. It is NOT all about money. Getting Awareness of the current situation & spreading the message is very critical. More importantly, help ‘Needy’ Ghosala’s on a ‘Consistent’ basis. Without our support they cannot do it.
KGF is committed to support existing ghosalas financially and encourage rescuing cows from slaughterhouses. Please send your contributions to KGF and we will work with individual ghosalas in India to make this happen.
