Despite being the audience for this show and having the world’s worst taste in popular culture, I do not like Schitt’s C

Abhinav has also received enquiries from a psychologist who wishes to experiment with cow therapy. In recent times there has been much focus on therapeutic contact with animals such as horses, goats, dogs, cats and dolphins. In October, BBC carried a new piece mulling on cow hugging as a new wellness trend. People reported benefits from leaning against cows, giving them a rub, hugging them and even getting licked by them. But the spiritual presence of cows has been known to Indians for millennia. In the ancient gurukulas of India where students lived in the ashrams with their gurus, one of their tasks was to tend to cows. Spending time with cows gave them deep spiritual insights. Even today, the gurukulas in India often have an attached gaushala where the children frolic with cows.,A small open-air theatre cum classroom is also being built near the grazing land of the gaushala in which discourses on Bhagvad Gita, Bhagwat Purana and various other Dharmic subjects can be held. I am hoping that classical music concerts will also be staged. What if Shri Hari Prasad Chaurasia ji himself played the flute here and the cows came closer to listen— my mind began to paint a picture of paradise. There are plans to build a number of huts in which families can come to spend a Vedic weekend at the gaushala. As the demand grows, more land can perhaps be purchased around the estate.,I had only heard about the Govardhan Puja but never witnessed one so it was with great excitement that I shopped for vegetables to prepare the bhog I would offer. Eventually I used eleven different vegetables to prepare the dish. Onions and garlic were, of course a no-no as they were disallowed in bhog. I prayed it would turn out right because I had not tasted it while cooking as per bhog rules.,Among the many people who wrote in response to my article on Abhinav in January was Ryan F Beylikjian, an ex-coastguard who was studying Regenerative Organic Agriculture at the Maharishi International University Fairfield, Iowa. He wished to spend three months at the Gaushala and complete one of the practical components of his course. Abhinav informed him that he did not have facilities for lodging. But for Ryan with his mobile trailer, that was no problem. He drove from Ohio right to the Gaushala and began to live in a tent on the estate with an additional room in the barn to keep his belongings. The Goswami family generously shared meals with him and let him use their facilities at home for a month before other arrangements could be made.,However, living in America, it is extremely hard to maintain authenticity in the rituals. This is because the food offerings have to also be made to the ancestors through the medium of creatures such as cows, birds, dogs, and even fish. Despite the many Hindu temples found in America today, one cannot find the actual ambience needed to perform Pitru rituals. But in Texas Gaushala, the cows are already there. Birdhouses will soon attract birds. The lily pond will have fish and ducks. If things go as per plan, Texas Gaushala will be a trendsetter with its facilities for performing an ancient ritual with deep significance.,Fed up with the single-hole dibblers in the market, Ryan did some improvisation and built a multi-dibbler which could quickly punch 15 holes at one time for planting the saffron bulbs. He and Abhinav engaged in many discussions on sowing practices and Ryan keenly documented Abhinav’s techniques.,It was now time for the grandest festival that the Goswamis liked to celebrate — the Govardhan Puja which comes every year on the fourth day of Deepavali. It is associated with Bhagwan Krishna who lifts up the Govardhan mountain in order to shelter his devotees from torrential rain. In India, the festival comes at a time when winter is about to step in; there’s usually a nip in the air. The markets overflow with both summer and winter vegetables; thus the bhog prepared to offer to Krishna consists of mostly vegetable dishes typically 56 dishes (chhapan bhog).,People turned up in good numbers at Texas Gaushala to celebrate the festival, each bringing a bhog dish which ultimately added up to more than a hundred dishes! Volunteers had created an elaborate Krishna out of cowdung as per tradition and they decorated it with colours and a variety of accessories. The atmosphere was like nothing I had experienced before. It was like India but not like India. It felt familiar but yet so new! There was a feast after the puja when all the bhog was savoured by visitors.,The parikrama was led by the oldest person present while Abhinav sang traditional songs. Most people present were unfamiliar with the songs native to Vrindavan and Mathura. Perhaps, the coming years will create an interest in learning folk songs.,I make that distinction because when you do not like Schitt’s Creek, you are met on your journey into hell by three spirits. Each one is lying to you about how good Schitt’s Creek is because — and I cannot stress this enough — Schitt’s Creek is not good.,Abhinav bought a tractor to till the land. When the tractor was delivered, a puja was performed on the vehicle in typical Hindu fashion. After all, tools, instruments and vehicles are treated as sacred objects by traditional Hindus.,With Ryan’s help, Abhinav embarked on his project of growing selected crops in one part of the estate. He decided to experiment with saffron which is the world’s most expensive spice and is also an important ingredient in Ayurvedic formulations. Extraneous shrubs and foliage were first removed from the selected area. Rows of beds were laid out and holes were punched into the soil with the help of volunteers.,Many people try and switch their diet and find it hard to do. Things don’t taste the same. I had the same problem. I learned that you have to allow your taste buds time to adapt. When your tastebuds are jazzed up on years of sugary drinks and fried food, a sudden change to healthy food tastes bland.,On the first day of Deepavali, many families landed up at Texas Gaushala in order to perform Gau Pooja. This is a ritual in which cows are honored as givers of many life-giving gifts — as mothers and nurturers. In ancient times, cows were regarded as wealth. Even possessing just one cow was enough to sustain a family and be free of disease.,Meanwhile, some donors came forward to propose the idea of building a Pitru Dham at the extreme corner of the estate. Making specific food offerings to one’s departed parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and other ancestors and following other pitru rituals are considered extremely important in Vedic society. Elaborate pitru rituals are performed every year by millions of Hindus. Pitru yajna is one of the five Mahayajnas that householders have been prescribed. The others are Rishi Yajna, Deva Yajna, Bhuta Yajna and Manushya Yajna. Bhuta Yajna, the offering to animals was mentioned earlier in this article.
