'Gau' means cow and Daan means donation. Cow has a great importance in Hindu religion. Since ancient times cows have been donated by kings and other people to Brahmins and others. The benefits of donating a cow are simply endless and it is believed that at least one cow must be donated in one man's life time. A Cow is said to be the abode of all the Gods. Every atom in cow’s body is abode of the 33 crore Gods. All the 14 mythical worlds exist in the limbs of cow. Brahma and Vishnu on the root of two horns. All the sacred reservoirs and Vedavyasa on the tips of the horns. Lord Shankara on the centre head. Parvathi on the edge of head. Kartikeya on the nose, Kambala and Ashwatara Devas on the nostrils. Ashwini Kumaras on the ears. Sun and Moon in the eyes. Vayu in dental range and Varuna on the tongue. Saraswathi in the sound of cow. Sandhya goddesses on the lips and Indra on the neck.

Soma on the tail, Sun rays on the hair, Ganga in its urine, Lakshmi and Yamuna in the dung, Saraswathi in milk, Narmada in curd, and Agni in ghee 33 crore Gods in the hair Prithwi in stomach, oceans in the udder, Kamadhenu in the whole body Three Gunas in the root of the brows, Rishis in the pores of hair, and all the sacred lakes in the breathe. Chandika on the lips and Prajapathi Brahma on the skin Fragrant flowers on nostrils Sadhya Devas on the arm-pit Six parts of Vedas on the face, four Vedas on the feet, Yama on the top of the hoofs, Kubera and Garuda on the right, Yakshas on the left and Gandharvas inside Khecharas in the fore of the foot, Narayana in intestine, mountains in the bones, Artha, Dharma, Kama and Moksha in the feet. Four Vedas in the Hoom… sound There are 7 mothers listed in scriptures. They are… 'adau mata guru-patni, brahmani raja-patnika dhenur dhatri tatha prthvi saptaita matarah'
Meaning: Real mother & Guru-patni,
the wife of spiritual master or teacher. Brahmani,
the wife of a brahmana, and Raja-patnika,
the queen. Dhenu,
the cow, Dhatri,
nurse, as well as the Earth.
Earth is mother because she gives us so many things like fruits, flowers, grains for our eating. Mother gives milk & food for eating. Cow gives us milk. So cow is also one of our mothers. दानानामपि सर्वेषां गवां दानं प्रशस्यते । गावः श्रेष्ठाः पवित्राश्च पावनं ह्येतदुत्तमम् ॥ (Mahabharata, Anushasana Parva 83-3)
Donation of cows is superior to all others. Cows are supreme and sacred.
There is no other donation comparable to donation of a cow in this world. It helps in making a person pure and helps him in attaining the highest state of eternal bliss. It is said that the Sun, Moon, Varuna, Agni, Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva salute the person who donates cow benevolently.
