The word ‘Gausevak’ is a holy combination of two words ‘Gau’ and ‘Sevak.’ The ‘Gau’ stands for divine cows, the most respected, loved, and worshipped animal in Sanatan Culture. The ‘Sevak’ stands for the caretaker or servant. The Gausevak refers to a caretaker or servant who is immersed completely in the service of mother cows. Gauseva means service of or taking care of cows.
It is mentioned in our Vedic scriptures and religious books that folks who get the opportunity to work as a Gausevak are blessed and fortunate. Rashtriya Gau Sevak Sangh, an associate unit of Hindrise Gaushala, is working for the welfare of mother cows. This organization is consistently cultivating the feelings of Gauseva in the heart of a major chunk of the population. We are making Gau Sevak Dals and Gau Rakshak Dals to preserve our desi cow breeds such as Gir, Sahiwal, Tharparkar, Rathi, etc. and make the arrangement of shelter for abandoned and stray cows surviving anyhow against all the odds.
Currently, we are working all day and night for 500+ mother cows, and we believe that this is just the beginning of our Gauseva. We have to transform the fortune of the maximum number of mother cows residing in different parts of India.
The love of Lord Shri Krishna for cows can’t be defined in a few words. Several stories indicate that Lord Shri Krishna was fond of mother cows and calves and used to spend significant moments of his life with the innocent moo creatures. In order to grab the attention of mother cows, he used to produce melodious music using his flute. As per the Vedic tales, the cows that came close to the heart of Lord Shri Krishna are Ganga, Pisangi, Hamsi, Mangala, and other cows.
Cows were mesmerized by the graceful and peaceful music produced by Lord Shri Krishna. In the religious books, Lord Shri Krishna was portrayed as a cowherd and the real Gausevak. It is clearly showcased in the Vedic scriptures that Lord Krishna was familiar with all the cows of the village and knew them by their names. He used to chase the divine cows and call them by their names. He was popular by the names Gopala and Govinda, which mean “friend & protector of cows.” He is considered to have demonstrated the importance and value of cow worship through his actions as well as teachings. During the golden days of Lord Shri Krishna, cows were considered sacred and were never slaughtered or mistreated in age-old Hindu society.
If you want to express your love and emotions toward amazing mother cows, start showering love and taking care of them. Also, it’s a way through which you can make Lord Shri Krishna happy.
After several rounds of discussions with his team members, Shri Narendra Kumar Ji decided to form a Gausevak wing that will primarily focus on meeting the daily needs of mother cows. He initiated Hindrise Gaushala to provide housing and healthcare facilities to abandoned and stray cows with the objective of improving their lives by equipping their lives with veterinary support and nutritious organic fodder.
The basic objective of the Gausevak wing is to serve the mother cows and provide a safe and dignified life for them. This wing will take the responsibility of reaching out to injured cows or cows in adverse situations and extend timely help to them. From making the arrangement for their fodder to providing them with healthcare assistance and the right treatment and cleaning the cow shed, the members of the Gausevak wing will proactively work all day and night.
Shri Narendra Kumar Ji, the founder of Rashtriya Gau Sevak Sangh, said, “We are blessed with a number of cow volunteers in our team. Recently, we successfully saved the lives of 200+ mother cows amidst the Yamuna flood in July 2023. We are thankful to our gausevaks who left no stone unturned in fighting hard against the flood. Natural calamities can take place anytime. Thus, we need to be ready in advance to tackle such challenges in the future course of time. We are establishing Gau sevak wing and connecting with people who are passionate about serving mother cows. The wing will perform its tasks in different states, and the coordination between the Gausevaks will take place on the call. Furthermore, the virtual meeting will take place every month to analyze the situation and discuss what can be done to improve the lives of mother cows.”
