“Surabi Nectar” Brijabasi Spirit Oct. 1974

Namo brahmanya devaya go brahmana hitaya ca
Jagat hitaya krsnaya govindaya namo namah.

My Lord, You are the well-wisher of the cows and the brahmanas, and You are the well-wisher of the entire human society and world.

The purport is that special mention is given in that prayer for the protection of the cows and the brahmanas. Brahmanas are the symbol of spiritual education, and cows are the symbol of the most valuable food. These two living creatures, the brahmanas and the cows must be given all protection. That is the real advancement of civilization.

This week several more heifers came to Bahulaban from Nandagram to be bred. Bhakta Alfred is bringing them over almost daily. These calves haven’t been much used to having people around, therefore some have been hard to handle. Lila, a two year, 8 month heifer, is the first calf Mallika has had since coming to New Vrindaban. Gandhari is 2 years 2 months old and Pritha is her mother. Lila and Gandhari, because of their persistent non-submissive attitude had to be brought here be being tied to Samba’s tractor. Since coming tho’, they have cooled down greatly. Ratha Dasi, Devahuti, Sachi a gurnsey, and Tretya a four year old jersey have increased the herd population at Bahulaban also. Of these; Kalindi, Gandhari and Ratha Dasi were bred this week by Rupa. Mothers Yasoda and Cintamani were bred by Sanatan

Mother Rohini started limping at the beginning of the week. We cleaned her foot and she showed some torn skin which was washing and now she appears with no limp. Satyabham was ill with a cold at the start of the week, but is back to normal.
