Welcome to ISKCON GBC Ministry of Cow Protection & Agriculture

Established in 1998, the Ministry for Cow Protection and Agriculture has been inspiring, educating and advising ISKCON cow protection centers and farms on developing sustainable projects based on caring for cows and the proper utilization of land.

Today, ISKCON operates with over 100 farms and goshalas around the globe, with innumerable affiliate projects. It is our hope and ultimate faith that the connection with Mother Earth and mother cow will become a visible and divine reality for the spiritual upliftment of humanity.

Not only does cow protection provide a much needed rise in the consciousness of the entire world, but as a movement named, The International Society for Krishna Consciousness, cow protection is at the very heart of what ISKCON stands for. Afterall, as Srila Prabhupada often said, “cow protection is one of the main items for the Krishna consciousness movement.”

“If human society wants to be exalted, the leaders of society must follow the instructions of Bhagavad-gītā and give protection to the cows, the brāhmaṇas and brahminical culture.”

“Krishna said at that time that the cows are worshiped even by the demigods, and He practically demonstrated how to protect the cows. At least people who are in Krishna consciousness should follow in His footsteps and give all protection to the cows. Cows are worshiped not only by the demigods. Kṛṣṇa Himself worshiped the cows on several occasions, especially on the days of Gopāṣṭamī and Govardhana-pūjā.”

“The proprietor of all land, the maintainer of all land, to give pleasure to the people of all land, is Govinda, Kṛṣṇa. And He is the protector, and pleasing to the cows. You have seen many pictures of Kṛṣṇa, He is a loving cow. Why not another animal? Why particularly cow? Because cow protection is the most important business of human society.”

WHAT WE DO

The ISKCON Ministry of Cow Protection is dedicated to spreading not only awareness of cow protection as much as possible, but also to providing assistance and opportunities to both existing and up-and-coming cow protection communities. The ministry is currently aiming to:

OUR MISSION IS COW PROTECTION

If you have any queries or would like to get involved, please contact us by filling the form below.

  • Establish Training Programs

    Establish training programs and set protocols for goshalas which can help others imbibe the history and unique values of cow protection as stated in our vedic scriptures and by Srila Prabhupada himself. The ministry hopes to present such important information in a way that works synergistically and in cooperation with modern research and teaching institutes with knowledge of agriculture and farming. The hope is to produce, dedicated teams of highly qualified individuals who can create, maintain and even expand such projects.

  • Conferences & Seminars

    Organize conferences and seminars so that individuals have places to gather and learn first hand the systems, wonders and benefits of cow protection. After these seminars conclude, those who have attended would be able to take the information that they gathered back to their respective areas and begin their own groups. With the “each-one-teach-one” model the message of cow protection can spread quickly and effectively.

  • Funding

    Raise funds. This is the chance for everyone, even those who may not be able to personally care for cows, to get involved in Srila Prabhupada’s vision for humanity at large By joining hands and contributing whatever funds possible, whether large or small, we can not only keep the current cow protection projects thriving, but we can grow the mission of cow protection to grand new heights.

  • Publications

    Publish resource material and eventually establish libraries and resource centers in order to spread to all corners of the world the benefits of cow protection and the motto of “simple living, high thinking” which was often suggested by Srila Prabhupada as the model on which the whole world would be able to create the most harmonious civilization.
