gho Puja (கோ பூஜை)


Clear dates

Gho Pooja implies adoring Goddess Kamadhenu. Puranas state that Mother Kamadhenu (“Gho Matha”) exuded from the smooth sea while the Devas and Asuras were stirring the sea and she was taken into ownership by Devas. As Kamadhenu satisfied the desires of all, the Devas prospered with her awesome elegance.

Once Kamadhenu left the Devas and achieved the Ashram of Sage Vasishta. The Brahma Rishi began Kamadhenu Pooja (venerating of the hallowed cow). Legend goes that King Dileepa was honored with a tyke with the perfect elegance of Kamadhenu and he performed Kamadhenu Pooja according to the directions of the Brahma Rishi. It is said that Vasishtar was a motivation for all to comprehend the significance of “Gho Pooja” and the advantages that could be gathered through this love.
