A safe haven for

Indian Zebu cows,

in northern Arizona

 

....Where the cow is

seen as "mother"

and the bull as "father"

About

"According to the Vedas, human prosperity depends more on brahminical culture and cow protection.

This should be taught all over the world, and ideal self-suffiicient farm communities should be developed. Then all economic problems are solved."

  - Srila A.C.    Bhaktivedanta                   

Swami Prabhupada

Project

Our purpose is to love, protect, and serve the cows. The ideal life is to live off the natural bounty of the land and from the cow's gift of milk.

At the Vedic Ranch we show how one can be happy by a life of "simple living and high thinking", and by the cultivation of one's blissful and natural spiritual consciousness.

Help support and care for the cows - gomata seva!

In the Brhat Parashara Smrti (5.26-27) it is said that one who feeds the cow with grass and water every day derives the benefit equivalent performing an Ashwamedha Yajna.

We just went through a massive flood here at the Vedic Ranch, on Friday, early morning, Feb. 15th, 2019

 

We made a GoFundMe page to inform show people, and on there is a link for Fox News, that shows the farm being covered with water.

Unfortunately, all our small Nigerian Goats were killed, but the dogs survived, and so did the cows and donkey.

 

© 2015 by the Vedic Ranch Goshala & Cow Care.. We are acting under the auspicies of the Sedona Center of Vedic Culture, a non-profil 501(c)(3) organization, whose aim is to help bring about a spiritual revolution in the world, through disemination of spiritual knoiwledge found in the Vedic literature, and through the cultural exhibits of its master plans (http://sedonavedicculture.com). The Vedic Ranch is an inspirtaion from His Divine Grace A.C. Bhakivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Founder-Acarya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). Although the Vedic Ranch & Goshala is a separate and independent spiritual venture, some of its members and organizers are disciples or followers of His Divine Grace, who stressed so much the importance of cow protection and developing goshalas all over the world, for the protection of the cows and bulls. Goshala means a plavce where the cows are protected. The cows are treated as sacred in India because they act as "mother" for the entire human society by supplying milk, which when taken, builds higher brain cells for understanding God. Most temples in India have goshalas in which the milk from such protected cows is used in service of the Deities of the Lord. Goshala ki Jaya!
