Full-fledged shelter: Cows being fed at ISKCON's Goshala' on Hare Krishna Road in Tirupati.
ISKCON has decided to make use of the 50 acres of land donated by a philanthropist in Rangannagarigadda village of Chinnagottigallu mandal by setting up a state-of-the-art cow protection centre to house a whopping 2000 heads of cattle.
The present Goshala' situated behind the Lotus Temple' on Hare Krishna Road was established way back in 1982 with just three cows. It has now grown into a full-fledged facility with 280 animals, half of which are housed at the Akkarampalli branch on the city outskirts.
Apart from using the milk and other byproducts for performing Abhishekam' and making Prasadam', the authorities are also making the most of the cow urine and dung, which are abundant in medicinal properties, by producing drugs to treat cold, allergy, skin diseases, kidney ailments, diabetes, cosmetics etc.
After the Tirupati centre which provides mid-day meals everyday to 28,000 children of State-run schools, the upcoming facility is also providing free meals to 15,000 children of Piler, Chinnagottigallu and Yerravaripalem mandals.
