With the twin aims of preserving the glorious tradition of serving the “gau mata” (cow) as well as to save residents of a number of villages situated in the Shivalik foothills falling in Shaheed Bhagat Singh Nagar, Hoshiarpur and Ropar districts from the menace of stray cattle, Acharya Chetnanand has launched a drive “Each one, adopt one” for ensuring active participation of the masses in the “gau raksha andolan” (save cow drive).
The drive is getting momentum day by day as the enthusiastic followers of the Bhuriwale Trust have so far caught more than 1000 abandoned cows for adoption and protection.
“With this the abandoned cows have started getting proper shelter, fodder and care in the houses and the villagers have been relieved of the nuisance being created by the stray animals by damaging their crops or causing, Proper medical care is also being provided to the cows by trust..
Though there are proposals for providing funds for setting up “gaushalas” by the Central and state governments in the area, Acharya Chetnanand is of the view that merely setting up of “gaushalas” would not serve the purpose in its true spirit. “Spending huge amounts on ‘gaushalas’ and bearing recurring expenses would be futile sans active participation of the people. Hence, he thought of launching a motivation drive which would not only ensure active participation of the people but would serve the purpose of ‘gau raksha’ in a very simple and economical manner,
Vedhant Acharya Swami Chetnanandji Maharaj Bhuri Wale is now showing the righteous path to his followers(bhaktjans) through his relentless efforts all over the world.
