Vrindavan, 2017.08.14 (VT): At Shri Krishna Goshala in Mathura the gaushala administration has reported that the cows are giving more milk in preparation for Janmashtami. Shri Krishna Goshala is the official goshala of Shri Krishna Janmasthan temple.
During the abhishek at Shri Krishna Janmasthan, which will be held tomorrow night, hundreds of litres of milk – some of it converted into yoghurt and ghee – will be used to bathe Shri Krishna. The panchamrit will then be given to devotees for consumption as prasad.
Only milk from the Janmasthan’s 100 cows will be used in the abhishek. Most of the cows in the gaushala are breeds native to India such as Gyr and Sahiwal. The cows of the Janmasthan’s gaushala are honored as descendants of Nand Baba’s cows.
The cows are reported to be in a blissful mood; even the calves are playing and jumping around the gaushala. According to the gaushala’s administration, this happens every year around Janmashtami.
