“The words of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu, the greatest authority, herein clearly indicate that one becomes pious simply by keeping cows and protecting them.” – Caitanya Caritamrita, Adi Lila 17.111
If you live in a place where you cannot maintain cows personally, you can engage in cow protection by adopting one of our resident cows, bulls or calves. You can donate for one month, one year or lifetime feeding and care. For one year and lifetime adoption, you can perform worship of the adopted cow with assistance of a Goshala priest. In case of lifetime adoption, you can perform the worship every year on your preferred date. Become a Lifetime Adoption member and we will also send you regular updates and photos of your adopted cow.
