Happy Father’s Day from Save the Cow to all the Dads.

Here are some fatherly thoughts from the Vedic tradition.

Lord Krishna declares in Bhagavad Gita (9.17): pitaham asya jagato mata dhata pitamahah  I am the father of this universe, the mother, the support and the grandsire.

While Krishna is the supreme father and mother, Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu explains to us: “You drink cows’ milk; therefore the cow is your mother. And the bull produces grains for your maintenance; therefore he is your father. Since the bull and cow are your father and mother, how can you kill and eat them?” (Cc Adi 17.153-4)
