Happy Govardhana Puja

Govardhan Cows

Happy Govardhana Puja from Save the Cow

The cowherd men then inquired from Krishna how He wanted the yajna performed, and Krsna gave them the following directions. “Prepare very nice foodstuffs of all descriptions from the grains and ghee collected for the yajna. Prepare rice, dhal, then halava, pakora, puri and all kinds of milk preparations, like sweet rice, sweetballs, sandesa, rasagulla and laddu, and invite the learned brahmanas who can chant the Vedic hymns and offer oblations to the fire. The brahmanas should be given all kinds of grains in charity. Then decorate all the cows and feed them well. . . .  After giving nice grasses to the cows, the sacrifice known as Govardhana-puja may immediately begin. This sacrifice will very much satisfy Me.”

Krishna Book, Chapter 25
