Nine-day Int’l Gau-Navratri Mahotsav begins in Puri

Bhubaneswar, October 20, 2017: The nine-day International Gau-Navratri Mahotsav-2017 was inaugurated by Shankaracharya Nischalananda Saraswati at Saradhabali in Puri in the presence of Union Minister Dhamendra Pradhan.

The Mahotsav which is being organised in Odisha for the first time witnessed a huge crowd on the inaugural day. The International Go-Navratri Mahotsav is known for spreading awareness and developing consciousness about the sacred indigenous Gau-Mata among the believers and non-believers across the globe.

The event aims at protection of the cattle community from illegal means of slaughtering. Statistics say the cattle population in pre-independence India was almost 100 crores which has dwindled to an unbelievable low level of population less than 10 crores due to slaughtering of these animals.

During the nine-day event, various activities for spreading awareness about the indigenous Gau-Mata and its contribution in abundance to mankind will be exhibited. The activities include workshops to be conducted on a regular basis where eminent scientists will discuss on various aspects of cattle like Panchagavya Chikitsa Se Sharir, Govansh Ke Mukhya Rog, Govansh Me Rogon Ki Janch, Gaushala Me Bimari Par Niyantran and many more.

Workshops will be followed by Gau-Pujan and Arti and public meetings in the evening.
