Bigger and Better – X’Mas & New Year Rescues – Over 100 Cows Saved….

கோ ஸம்ரக்ஷணம் நம்முடைய அத்யாவச்யக் கடமையாதலால், இதை நடைமுறை ஸாத்யமில்லாத கார்யம் என்று தள்ளிவிடாமல், சில ச்ரமங்கள் இருந்தாலும் அவற்றைச் சமாளித்துக் கொண்டு, கஷ்ட நஷ்டப் பட்டாவது அவச்யம் இதைச் செய்ய வேண்டும். அப்படியொன்றும் கஷ்டமும் நஷ்டமும் பெரிசாக வந்து விடாது. பால் மறுத்த பசுக்களைக் கட்டித் தீனி போட முடியவில்லை என்பதால்தானே அவற்றைக் கசாப்புக் கடைக்கு அனுப்புவது? அப்படித் தாய்த் தெய்வமும், தெய்வத் தாயுமான கோ கொலைக் களத்துக்குப் போகிறதுதான் பெரிய கஷ்டமும் நஷ்டமும். அது நேராமல் பார்த்துக் கொள்வதற்குச் செய்கிற எந்த முயற்சியும் கஷ்ட நஷ்டங்களில் சேராது. – ஜகத்குரு ஸ்ரீ சந்திரசேகரேந்திர சரஸ்வதி ஸ்வாமிகள்

Gho Samrakshanam (preservation of cows) is our essential duty, we should not dismiss it up as an impracticable affair and should execute it to our best, braving against all odds, even if it has a few inconveniences and practical difficulties. Actually no big trouble or loss is going to befall us while doing this. Are we not sending the unyielding cows to the slaughter houses only because we are unable to feed them any longer? It is the cow which is an embodiment of motherhood as well as Divine going to the slaughter house is the greatest trouble and loss. All other efforts undertaken to prevent this tragedy cannot be considered as a difficulty or loss. – Jagadguru Chandrasekharendra Saraswathy Swamigal

Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara,

The last few weeks has been absolutely frantic…several separate rescue efforts where cows/calves/rishabams rescued every day from various places:

1. Slaughterhouses
2. Marakkanam cattle owners who rear the cattle to sell it to abattoirs
2. Melmalayanur Sandhai (Cattle Market)
3. Thalakulam Sandhai
4. Milkmen near my home
5. Old, Sick, non-yielding cows from dairy farms
6. Other individual cattle owners/slaughter house brokers
7. Few sick cows that were on death bed (which also died after rescue) if otherwise would have been killed cruelly

There are certain times of the year that beef sales skyrocket and the period leading up to until X’Mas and New Year will be really nasty with the demand for cow meat spiking up. Though it is very unfortunate, this has got nothing much to do with religion as many Hindus and people from other religions play a role in this massive massacre.

Many thanks to our friends from other religions (Xavier Raja and Sumana Khan) for realizing the importance and contributing to this noble cause.

By Periyava Krupai managed to rescue several cows during the last few weeks. Below are the pictures.

  3. Can you share a Goshala that accepts contributions? I want to contribute but could not fix it. Either phone number or address will be helpful to move forward. Pongal is approaching fast

  4. Amazing Sir.Your message n Ghomatha images just drenched my eyes.
    We pray to Kanchi Shankarachariar’s to give success in all your future rescue efforts so that many Cows n Buffaloes can be saved from merciless killings.Rama Rama🙏🙏

  5. Dear Sai Srinivasan,
    I would like to know if your Gho Samrakshanam is financially supported by Kanchi Matha. The reason I am asking this is because in year 2019 and 2020, I have donated to the Gho Samrakshanam a large amount of money. I know I shouldn’t say or talk about it but I am curious if the donated money is utilised in your noble cause in saving the cows. Or are you using your own resources to finance the rescue. This is a sincere and serious enquiry that I hope you will answer. Thank you.

    • Namaskaram Shri Gerald,

      The cow rescue efforts are not financially supported by Sri Matam. All the donations for cow rescues come through the blog devotees, Sri Periyava Kainkaryam group (a seva group which I’m part of) and some of my personal friends/contacts.

      As you are aware, Sri Matam already has a couple of Gosalas that they have to manage which will be a challenge in itself. I don’t expect any financial support from them for our rescue efforts. All we need is our Aacharyal’s blessings which is aplenty. Our Periyava is updated on all our cow rescue efforts and keeps blessing us for all the rescue initiatives.

      Hope that clarifies. If you have any questions please write to donations@kgpfoundation.org.

      Rama Rama
      Sai

      • Dear Sai Srinivasan,
        Thank you for your reply and your wonderful work.
        This is my email address: gdkali@yahoo.com. Can you please give me the details of your bank account so that I can transfer some money in helping in the Go Samrakshanam Kainkaryam that you are doing. It’s my annual donation when I come to Tamilnadu every year, but since with Covid and travelling restrictions…this year I can’t travel to Tamilnadu from Sydney. As the money were to be donated to Go Samrakshanam at the Matha…I wish to donate it to your cause. I know Maha Periyava Himself have put this thought in my mind. All praises to His Holy Lotus Feet.

        Radhe Krishna!

        Gerald Anthony
