Our goal at Soma Gosala is to help restore the age-old, mutually sustainable relationship between human beings and cows everywhere in the world.
For thousands of years cows have been known to bestow good fortune, good health, harmony and peace wherever they reside. Those who cared for them knew the importance of treating them with utmost respect, kindness, and love.
Over the past few centuries the knowledge of the auspiciousness of the cow and the importance of giving proper care and protection to the cow has been lost and forgotten. Consequently, today cows are being consigned to the unfortunate position of being seen only for their commercial value. Widespread abuse and exploitation is resulting in all kinds of misfortunes both for humans and cows.
Fortunately, the whole thing can turn around. Together we can create a happier and healthier life for all. The age-old principles of sustainable cow care are being revived and practiced by many people throughout the world.
Here at Soma Gosala, we are applying ancient principles of cow care derived from the ancient Vedic tradition. in caring for a herd of 12 cows in the Catskill mountains of New York.
Our cows are allowed to live out their full span of life and calves always stay with their mothers and nurse from them freely. Our cows graze freely on pasture and move in and out of their barn at will in winter, eating pure hay. They are always treated with respect and kindness.
Daily we experience the blessings of culturing a quality of relationship with our cows that is yielding not only the finest, most nourishing milk ever, but also bringing us deep joy and satisfaction as we grow in greater attunement and harmony with the laws of nature that sustain all life everywhere.
It is said that until cows are honored, world peace cannot become a reality. Based on our experience, we firmly believe this to be true. We are committed to restoring the principles and practice of sustainable cow care everywhere in the world. We warmly invite you to join us in supporting this kind of life for cows everywhere.
