Happy Karttika

Feed a cow—please the Lord

namo brahmanya-devaya go-brahmana-hitaya ca

jagad-dhitaya krsnaya govindaya namo namah

 

When Krishna comes to establish real perfection in the social order, He personally gives protection to the cows and the brahmanas (go-brahmana-hitaya ca).

This is His first interest because without protection of the brahmanas and the cows, there can be no human civilization and no question of happy, peaceful life.

(Srila Prabhupada’s purport to Srimad-Bhagavatam 10.4.41)

govardhana-lilaOut of great affection for the cows of Vraja, Krishna became the lifter of Govardhana Hill. At the end of the day, having rounded up all His own cows, He plays a song on His flute, while exalted demigods standing along the path worship His lotus feet.

(Gopala-Campu, First Champi, Text 152, Srila Jiva Goswami, translated by Kusakratha dasa.)
