Under the program ‘Go Mata Ko Godd Lena Hai’, a yatra all over India was carried out on Sunday in the city to awaken the sense of service towards Gau Mata and to take a pledge to adopt stray cows roaming in the streets for their service. Jagatguru Santoshi Baba, who is doing the work of inspiration, said in an event held at Nachiketa Gurukul during a one-day visit to Jaipur that where the mother cow is insulted and disrespected, there is no prosperity because cow is our mother, who has immense love for us.
On this occasion, Jagatguruji Sri Sri Santoshi Babaji said that as long as we live in this world, we continue to get milk, curd, ghee, butter etc. from the mother cow. But it is very sad that a mother who is better than our mother who gave birth to us. The plight of the cow is happening today. Hungry mother cows are eating garbage and plastic, sick, hungry and thirsty, they are in agony but we don’t pay attention to it. He urged that the service of cow is necessary for leading a successful life, a healthy life. First of all after waking up in the morning remember cow mother and bow down to her, do her aarti, pray and before eating rotli gau gras, if we take one roti in the name of cow mother and offer it to mother cow then we will see how big our life will be. Change will come. This is not just a fantasy but has been used by sages since ancient times. Jagatguru Sri Sri Santoshi Babaji called us all to take a resolution that before eating take a roti in the name of Mother Cow and before going to sleep take a brick in the name of Mother Cow and this bread given by us will become the fodder of the cow and the given brick will become the shelter of the mother.
Sri Sri Santoshi Babaji was joined by many saints and cow devotees and a caravan of Babaji’s followers in this Mahayatra. The Yatra reached Gujarat on February 23-24 and from there the Yatra reached Vrindavan via Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh.
