ISKCON Gosala and Farm Project was established at Jagannathpur over a land of 12 Acres (approx.) in the year 1994 by Srila Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja. Presently there are nearly 50 nos. of milch cows. The aim and objective of establishing such a Gosala is for giving importance to Go raksa. This is an ideal place in Odisha with both Go seva and Farm Project.
“namo brahmanya-devaya go-brahmana-hitaya ca jagad-dhitaya 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." (Visnu Purana 1.19.65)
From the Vedic time stress has been given on Go raksa and on Go palana. In this project ISKCON has been giving specific seva for the cows. This project has been influencing the spiritually minor people for upbringing of cows.
There is planning for constructing boundary walls of the project. There is program for building a Pancatattva temple inside the Gosala premises.
The monthly expenditure towards feeding and treatment of cows is Rs. 1 lakh per month.
Presently this project is being supervised by H.G. Aptakama Dasa. Any pious person fond of Go sanskriti interested in Go seva / Go palana / treatment for ailing cows may contact him over his mobile no. 9777428157.
