An Eco-Friendly Initiative by ISKCON Juhu
Cows – one of the pillars of Vedic Culture
Nilachan Dham is an eco-friendly farm community spread across 20 acres at Talasari in Thane, Maharastra. It is home to a herd of around 25 cows and bulls who are loved and protected in a natural environment and engaged in organic farming.
The project includes organic farming, flower cultivation, plant nursery, a temple complex, cottage industry making cow products, medical camps and rural development.
Cows are held sacred in the Vedic culture. A cow is elevated to the status of a mother since she gives us milk to nourish us and therefore Cow protection is the duty of every human.
Cows are beloved of Lord Krishna also known as Govinda, the original cowherd boy and any association with them pleases Him and brings all auspiciousness.
One receives tremendous spiritual benefit by serving the cows. A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, founder of ISKCON, stressed the importance of cow protection and guided by his teachings, Nilachal Dham aspires to expand, provide shelter to cows and bulls and engage them in a way best suited to serve humanity.
