Meet Baladeva: A New Bull Calf Was Born at Our Ashram’s Goshala

baladeva

Last month a new bull calf was born at our ashram’s goshala in Orissa. Since he was completely white and born one day after Balarama Jayanti, we named him as Baladeva. This video has some clips of the first 20 days of his life.

He was born very thin and weak, and we had to bottle feed him as his mother wasn’t producing milk.But within a few days he was energetic and healthy, running around and playing.

His mother’s name is Yamuna. She was given to our ashram by a sadhu who stays in the forest around 50 km from here. You can read more about our ashram cows here.

The cows at our goshala are protected for their entire lives and never separated from their families. At present they have around 12 cents of land, which is enough for moving around, but not enough for grazing. In the future we hope to purchase 5 acres of land to make a cow sanctuary, where the cows can graze freely over the land and we can grow various types of grass for them to eat.

If you would like to help sponsor food for our cows you can use the following form to donate. Each month the cows and bulls (including some visitors) go through ten 50 kg bags of wheat bran. One bag of wheat bran currently costs 860 rupees ($13.50 USD). The monthly cost for all of their food is 8,600 rupees ($135 USD).

  1. COWS OF INDIAN DESHI NASL OR ZEBU ORIGIN IN WORLD ARE MOST ESSENTIAL PART OF THE MATRIX OF EARTH AND NATURE’S LAWS OF SUSTENANCE ON THIS PLANET. THIS IS A LOST PHENOMENA IN TODAY’S HIGH CONSUMERISM FASHION PARADE SOCIETY WITH NO INKLING TO SPIRIT OF HUMAN. THE NEW GENERATION IS MUCH MORE IN DARK ABOUT THIS.
    JUST FEEDING FEW COWS & BULLS IS GOOD BUT THE WHOLE ARENA CONTAINS MILLIONS OF THEM. SO UNLESS THERE IS IN-BUILT CONTINUANCE AND SUSTAINING PROJECTS FOR HUMAN LIFE AND COWS LIFE, THIS PERIL WILL TAKE TOLL OF ANNIHILATION OF LIFE ITSELF FROM PLANET EARTH AT SOME TIME FUTURE. TIME IS TOO VAST AND BIG WHILE PRESENT IS TOO TINY.

  2. It is heartening to know about the protection offered at the Ashram to cows and bulls.It is my prayer the the bulls should not be treated with less concern and they too deserve the same kind of affection and treatment as the cows. K.LAKSHMAN.

  3. The Veda says yajmaanasya pashoon paahi. Gaam maa hinsi. Protect the animals, protect the cow. Congratulations for the laudable effort. read the book GOKARUNANIDHI

  4. Is it not a bit unusual that the mother cow is not able to produce milk? Has Yamuna been medically examined? Baladeva may lack natural resistance and strength if he does not get mother’s milk. Of course we often read stories of wild/ abandoned young ones of different animals being bottle-fed and raised healthy! Baladeva is known for his strength ! May our Baladeva also grow strong and mighty!

  5. This was such a beautiful video to watch first thing in the morning. I hope that Baladeva is continuing to thrive and doing well. It gives my heart peace to know how these cows and Bulls are cared for and they will spend their whole lives together. They are such wonderful creatures. I wish they were all treated like this all over the world and it breaks my heart for the millions that have to suffer horrific lives at the hands of cruel and selfish human beings. It’s sad that Mama cannot produce milk but you have done an amazing job caring for him. Such a joy to see him frolicking around and the others playing as well. I send them so much love. So many blessings and much love to all of you! Thank you for what you do. I will be making a donation next month!

  6. I pray to God for their well being and hope he can show me the way to help them also. Jai Shree Ram.

  10. So blessed are those who abide by nature’s laws. All is written is the winds, the earth, the rivers, the animals. When will humans learn they cannot forsake the mother for the glamour of consumerism. I hope soon. Thank you for sharing this beautiful video.

  11. Way back in 1974, a cow has delivered a calf in the backyard of our own house at 85D P.T.Rajan Road, KK Nagar, Chennai 78 and my wife immediately took rice, dhall, jaggery etc. and gave it to the cow.
    They said it was very auspicious.
    Similarly also pigs have delivered a no. of its siblings wihtin a gap of 10 days then.

  12. Hello Sir Subramanian Rajagopal, you and your wife are blessed!
    May the Lord continue to bless you and your family.
    Jai Krishna.

  13. It seems to me that INDIA has TWO FACES where the COW is concerned.My concern is “WHY IS IT THAT WHILE THE COW IS RELIGIOUSLY ADORED AND WORSHIPED….INDIA CONTINUES TO BE THE NUMBER ONE EXPORTER OF BEEF IN THE WORLD”?JAI GOMATA!

  14. Dear Loving Sir
    The cow in nature and we called a second Mother of Human life after the mother’s feeding milk on particularly period on our young life and till end of our life we all are using the Milk used by Cow’s milk only for the good strength of brain and whole body, Thereby this Cow we should give a respective place of human world.We can not misuse them, please keep them on higher level, please.

  15. The bull calf is is such of a suchness! I feel sure that he might signify something though what, I do not know. Nonetheless, while we are to admire and appreciate the value of the cow, we are not to worship the cow. Our worship must be reserved for the Supreme One, the Unique Eternal Personality of Godhead and creator of all that there is. Namaste!

  16. Cow worship is a a ancient vedic practcie. it is our mother and kamadenu. when we worship the cow we are also indirectly worshipping the superme personality of the gods head.
