"Protection of bulls
and cows and all other
animals can be possible
only when there is a
state ruled by an
executive head like Mahārāja Parīkṣit.
Mahārāja Parīkṣit
addresses the cow as
mother, for he is a
cultured, twice-born,
kṣatriya king. Surabhi is the name of the
cows which exist in
the spiritual planets
and are especially
reared by Lord Śrī
Kṛṣṇa Himself. As men are made after the
form and features of
the Supreme Lord, so
also the cows are
made after the form
and features of the surabhi cows in the
spiritual kingdom. In
the material world the
human society gives all
protection to the
human being, but there is no law to
protect the
descendants of
Surabhi, who can give
all protection to men
by supplying the miracle food, milk. But
Mahārāja Parīkṣit and
the Pāṇḍavas were
fully conscious of the
importance of the cow
and bull, and they were prepared to
punish the cow-killer
with all chastisement,
including death. There
has sometimes been
agitation for the protection of the cow,
but for want of pious
executive heads and
suitable laws, the cow
and the bull are not
given protection. The human society should
recognize the
importance of the cow
and the bull and thus
give all protection to
these important animals, following in
the footsteps of
Mahārāja Parīkṣit. For
protecting the cows
and brahminical
culture, the Lord, who is very kind to the
cow and the
brāhmaṇas (go-
brāhmaṇa-hitāya), will
be pleased with us and
will bestow upon us real peace."
