"Sarvaa Vishnumayaa' Gaava: Taasaam Goptaa Hi Keshava:" In the Vedas, scriptures and the puranas, "GOdaana" or the donation of a cow assumes great importance, be it general family celebratory occasions or ceremonial gatherings. Since a cow is blessed with the presence of all the tatvAbhimAni gods and the omnipotent Lord Shri Krishna himself, the donation of a cow is equivalent to donating the Universe itself. Srimad Bhagavata, the king of all puranas, documents that Vasudeva donated 10,000 cows on the occasion of Shri Krishna's birth. Kamadhenu, the Indian cow, is believed to rid us of all our sins and bless us with all our desires. King Dileepa was blessed with children after doing the service of Nandini, Kamadhenu's daughter. Kaarthaveeryarjuna, subject to Kamadhenu's ire, faced defeat and was eventually killed by Lord Parashurama. In this way, cow service has always been significant. Auspicious time for cow donation: Vishnuratha, Yaaga/ritual, PrathishtHa, Sankranti, Parvakaala, Eclipse, Birth of a son, Manvadi, Ugadi, Shaanti karmas, Pilgrimage, House warming, Birthday, Chaturmasya, Dwadashi, Purnima, Vaidhrthi Vyatheepaatha yoga, ceremonies. Mahabharata informs us that the one who feeds a cow(GoGraasa) will experience pleasure in heaven for a period equal to "1,000 times the number of hairs on the cow's body" years.
