Living Godesses

Sanctity of the cow: in Hinduism, there is the belief that the cow is representative of divine and natural beneficence and should therefore be protected and venerated. The cow has also been associated with various deities, notably Shiva (whose steed is Nandi, a bull), Indra (closely associated with Kamadhenu, the wish-granting cow), Krishna (a cowherd in his youth), and goddesses in general. One can find thousands of cows walking through the land of India, walking wherever they want whenever they want.
