The holy scriptures say that each of us has seven mothers. Our birthmother, a nursing mother, wives of our master, a brahman, head of state, as well as mother Earth and the cow. For a mother there is nothing more important than the well-being of her child. In the same way there’s nothing more important for the cow than taking care of humans. So, what is her motherly sacrifice, and how can one pay her back for that?
In the depths of unrecorded time, when people started their breathtaking fall into the abyss of sin, Lord Vishnu gathered His associates and declared that the humanity needed to be saved. And the cow asked to entrust her with this mission. She knew that she’s going to be killed and used as food, but she was prepared to forgive and purify people. Lord Vishnu cried, but agreed with that. And then the cow descended into this world to give the humanity hope for salvation. She is not just an animal – the cow is divine. A mother, taking care of her baby, nurses it, hugs, kisses, feeds it, gives it emotional and social contact. This gives a child a possibility to become a human. The same with the cow: due to her care, humans get a chance to rise above animal existence, acquire intelligence and everything needed for living. The thirty-three million Demigods, who maintain the material world and take care of everything and everyone, find Their happiness in taking shelter of the cow.
