Letting the cows out


After a long winter stay inside the barns, the cows and oxen will be released into the pastures on 21st April. We all look forward very much to this day every year. We call this day, ‘Go Mocana Utsava ‘– the festival of the letting out of the cows! And its a festival! Their Lordships Sri Sri Radha Gokulananda will be gracing us with their presence, coming all the way from their altar just to see their favourite cows and enjoy the spectacle of seeing them leaping with joy and stretching themselves after their long winter months inside the barns.
