Gaushala is the Concept of Cow Protection and Habitat
Conservation. In Sanskrit the word 'Gaushala' literally means cow protection
or the place where cows are sheltered. Other Sanskrit names for the cow are
Go-mata (mother cow), Kamadhenu (wish fulfilling), and Aghnya (never to be
Rajpurohit Seva Sansthan Gaushala (shelter home) was established April 2003
at Guda Mokam Singh (Isali, Pali, Rajasthan) by the founder Shri Ghisu Lal
Rajpurohit. Initially the Gaushala was started with 60 cows on 5 bigha land.
Now we have around 635 cows in Gaushala. Later on Government of Rajasthan
alloted 2.61 Hactare land for the holy purpose. Maintaining what we have
is depends mostly on hard work and proper management. Our investments have
been by personal sacrifice and a help from our friends, symphathisers and
cow protectors who, although unable to personally raise and protect cows,
see the necessity for cow protection and are willing to lend a helping hand.
