Hindus believe that the Indian cow, houses the entire panorama of gods and goddesses. That is why, in ancient India, cow-wealth was the greatest wealth and cows body has been given the prominence of Vaikunth. Since ancient years Go-Seva (caring of cows) is considered highest form of Seva. Go-Seva is considered extremely pleasant experience, it's very relaxing, rewarding & fruitful. Lord Shri Krishna himself established the prominence of Go Seva during his life.

To continue this ancient tradition of Go-seva and conservation of cows, a Goshala was built while establishing Sidhdata Ashram. This Go-shala houses more than three hundred cows. Pujaya Guru Maharaj (Swami Shri Sudarshanacharaya Ji), personally himself named these cows Nandini, Narayani etc. He loved spending time with the cows at the Goshala. The milk from the cows at Goshala is used in Ashram for guests, saints, and residents of the Ashram. Guruji Swami (Shri Purushottamacharya ji Maharaj) has continued with this legacy of GuruMaharaj and takes keen interest in the functioning of the Go-shala and under his supervision this highly benevolent task continues.
