The Yatra will traverse through the nook and corner of India, covering a distance of about 20,000 Km. there will be 15,000 sub journeys at all district and taluk level covering a total distance of 10 lakh Km.

All the cow lovers and Devotees have joined under one banner supporting the cause promoted by Shree Raghaveshwara Bharathi Swamiji of Ramchandrapur Math, situated at Shimoga dist. in the south Indian state of Karnataka.

    Hare Krishna!
    I come from a Koppal Dist of Karnataka I grew up in a a Rural environment and remember all the Satvik and Wonderful lifestyle a Village offer, so very suitable to practice devotional service. I shifting to B’lore to pursue my education and living in matchbox styled hostel rooms. I realize how much we compromise on the quality of living for the sake of few extra earnings and so called luxury Cities have to offer.

    I was watching a Video by Sri Rajiv Dixit from Warda Gujarat where he says how Gandhi, Father of the nation preferred ban on slaughter Houses to Indian Independence. Srila Prabhupada says unless and until cow Slaughter is stopped there cannot be no Peace and happiness.

    Such kind of Massive movements only can shake up our so-called leaders who are ruling different nations either in deep slumber or busy making money for themselves.
    India is a Land of Krishna and its pathetic to see thousands of cows slaughtered in this holy Land.
    This is a very good opportunity for Devotees Express their love to Krishna and cows, we all should unite and work for cow protection.

    we all should actively participate in the signature campaign procure at least 108 signature for at least 16 day that 16 X 108 = 1728 I am sure that the best 16 rounds of service offered to Govinda. Srila Prabhupada will be Very Very Happy when Cow slaughter is Banned in India and world over.


    May the cows we serve continue to cleanse our heart and bring us to their eternal home Goloka Vrindaban

    Prabhu, I will write to your mail Id on how to actively get involved in this Magnificent Cause.

    Your ‘s in service of Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga,

    Its very heartening to see Rajaram Prabhu involved in this Great Cause of Cow Protection. I recollect How 15 years back we used to debate on the need for Kshatriya Guna devotees to become champions of cow protection. like Parikshit Maharaj
    Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.16.22 — Hawaii, January 18, 1974
    Here we see Maharaja Pariksit, as soon as he saw that a cow was being attempted to be killed, immediately he took his sword…, “What are you, nonsense? You are killing my citizen.” This is good government. This is good government. … Cow is giving you milk, just to give her protection, that “You take my blood, turn into milk. Please do not kill me.” So why these things are happening? Because there is rascal government, So one should lament that this, “We are under this rascal government,
    Today, this entire modern civilization is based on exploiting the Cow. We are undervaluing, devaluing her very existence. It is due to ugra karma industries that we have lost sensitivity in our lives.
    The welfare of the universe starts with the welfare of the Cow. That is why we pray to Lord Krishna glorifying Him as the protector of the Cows (first) and the Brahmanas (next). Just by taking care of the Cow and the Brahminical community, we can generate welfare for the whole universeand Namo BrahmanyaDevaaya Go Brahmana Hitaaya./ Jagadhithaaya Krishnaaya Govindaya Namo Namah”. So the way forward to create peace and welfare of the world is to start with Cow Protection
    Cow protection generates the sensitivity in humankind towards the entire animal and plant kingdom, the neglect of which has today brough upon Humanity the curse of climatic degradation, global warming and destruction of the ecosystem.

    Time has come to fight against this nonsense especially Kshtriya Devotees like Srila Prabhupada very nicely instructs a Guest in Indore.

    Room Conversation — December 13, 1970, Indore

    Prabhupada: In India, the land of sages, land of Krsna, land of Lord Ramacandra, land of Maharaja Pariksit, without any restriction cow slaughter is going on. And they are speaking of karma-yoga. Just see the fun.
    Guest (1): I don’t know where this India is going to, the land of Krsna is going to.
    Prabhupada: Well… No, we should try our best.
    Guest (1): We have to fight these habits. It is our duty.
    Prabhupada: Yes, that’s it. So you are a military man. I request you to fight against this nonsense.

    Hare Krishna!!

    Dear Mukunda Prabhu,
    Thank you for sharing you good realization of how much we stand to lose due to Ugra Lifestyle Cities has to offer. My Spiritual Master H.H.Bhakti Raghava Swami always says that if we do not voluntarily move to Villages we will be forced to! Or rather should I say we will be driven out! I strongly Recommend that you read “Make Vrindavan Villages” by H.H. Bhakti Raghava Swami, I shall be glad to send a copy of it to you!

    Last Sunday I was in Ongole to attend 1st A.P. Goushala Federation Executive meeting to formulate Bylaws there are some amazing developments happening in the area of cow protection. Devotees like you who are keen to start Goushala and settle down in village can get financial support up to 25 lakhs from Govt. we are working on means and methods to empower Farmers to eagerly take up cow protection because it’s economically viable. That’s the key to stop cow slaughter- make and establish a system where cow is a reliable source of Income not a liability. When farmers refuse to sell cows to slaughter houses we can throw out these “factories of Death” lock, stock and barrel. Step two is to bring Krishna in the lives of the farmers and lo we will achieve the golden instructions of Srila Prabhupada “ Make Vrindavan villages”

    Vande Gou Matram!! Vande Krishnam Jagad Gurum!!! Vande Sri Goura Sundaram!!!

    My Dear Mahasundar Prabhu!!
    Thanks for your wonderful blessing!! Yes! It’s a full circle – Its took quite some time to realize my Swa-Guna, no matter how much we denounce the division of society we invariably have to follow it maybe in a contaminated form! One day or the other we have to realize the need for a proper system in place – We need Brahmanas like you to Guide the society, Kshatriya’s to administer and fight for Dharma, Vashya’s to carry on Krishi-Goraksha-Vanijyam and sudhra’s to serve. I am sure our Leaders and Spiritual masters will show us the way and very soon we will have Varnashrama system followed at least within ISKCON society there by setting an example to the public in general as to how a happy and peaceful society can be organized to lead a Happy god centric life.
