GOMATA PUJA

Nithyanandeshwara Hindu Temple Houston Aadheenam

Sunday, March 11, 2018

"It’s not joke when our Shastras declare, “All the Gods and Goddesses reside in the cows,” 

... If you just take care of them and attend to them, Deity worship, doing Alankaram to Deities and taking care of the cows, only if you practice you will understand the kind of a inner space they manifest. "
- The Avatar H.H Paramahamsa Nithyananda

THE Mother

 “Go” Means Cow, and “Maata” means Mother. The Desi Cow is revered as The Mother having Divine Qualities.

  

THE living temple

 The Desi Cow – The Revered Gomata – She is a Living Temple in whom 33 crore Hindu Gods and Goddesses reside.

All Gods have their presence in the body of cow. From head to foot, every body part of cow is home to a God.

By performing the Gomata Puja, we worship All Gods and Goddesses.

  

the Wish Fulfilling one

When the Gods & Demons churned the milky ocean, many treasures emerged, such as Goddess Lakshmi, the Kalavriksha (Wish-Fulfilling Tree), Amrita (Nector of Immortality), etc.

One Being Which Emerged Was Kamadhenu – The Divine Wish-Granting Cow who has the capacity to fulfill the very thought of a desire. Hindus revere cows as the mortal Incarnation of Kamadhenu.​

  

embodiment of Abundance

We give cows the rice hulls we do not require; yet in return, cows give us only the most auspicious things – Milk, which then is used as Yogurt, Butter, or Ghee. 

Like how they take all that we do not need, and yet, only give us the most auspicious things in return, in the same way, by performing Puja to The Desi Cow, all negative thoughts & qualities get removed from us, for us to be showered with auspiciousness & abundance.
