Cow is extolled in the holy scriptures with the sayings “Ga:vo: Viswasya Ma:tharaha” which means “Cows are the mothers in the Universe” in the Rig Veda, the Yajur Veda, and the Atharva Veda.
His Holiness Sri Sri Sri Tridandi Srimannarayana Ramanuja Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji started a Go:sa:la (a cowshed) to preserve all the existing indigenous species/breeds of cows.
JIVA Go:sa:la has been growing over the years and the numbers of cows, calves, heifers, bulls, and oxen grew to 400+.
On the request of the Swarna Bhrathi trust run under the leadership of India’s Vice president Sriman Venkaiah Naidu, 10 different species of indigenous cows from JIVA Go:sa:la were sent for the exhibits at the Sankranti fest conducted by them on Jan 13th. The exhibition was sponsered by the Telangana Animal welfare association. In this exhibition many other cows from different Go:sa:la were also present. JIVA Cows were crowded because of their best body conditions by many people and were enquired about the care and food given to them.
