THE HOLY COW - a divine bounty of earth
For the Vedic man cows were 'the "real life" substratum of the goods of life'
Considered a sacred animal, as it provides us life sustaining milk.
Also seen as a maternal figure, a care taker of her people.
Lord Krishna also goes by the names Govinda and Gopala, which literally means “friend and protector of the cows”
Manifesting as a symbol of wealth first in the Vedic period (1500 - 900 BCE), as a symbol of wealth.
The Puranas, ancient Hindu scriptures, have it that nothing is more pious than the gift of cows
The cow was venerated as the mother goddess in the early Mediterranean civilisations.
