In the Vedic period the immigration of the Indoaric shepherds (Indo-Aryan), had a special status in India. A myth recounts that Krishna, who is a symbol of divinity of the highest and ultimate existence or reincarnation, was given to a family of shepherds when he was born because of threat. He was raised by shepherds, milkmaids, also called Gopis and cows who fed him. The
cow was resembled as a respectable mother.
To the Hindu folk slaughter and murder is the same. Because of that one must honour, pray, maintain the cow and build homes for them. This will be meritorious for their next life.
Cows are a giver of life and symbolize softness. They fulfil wishes and at funerals they are given away as presents.
Moreover, the cows eat the biological trash of the Indian streets.
