Surgery for Goshala's first Calf - Gopal

posted Feb 7, 2019, 8:46 PM by Sudhir Babu   [ updated Feb 7, 2019, 8:59 PM ]

Hare Krishna,

Our beloved calf Gopal while playing with Nandi met with a terrible accident on Monday, February 2nd evening at our Sri Krishna Balaram's Hasati Goshala. Unfortunately Gopal's back leg came out completely from its socket and tore all the ligaments. Our veterinary Doctor has done the diagnosis and Gopal has been taken to UC Davis, which is the premier veterinary hospital for California. Gopal is scheduled to undergo a critical surgery on Friday, Feb 8th at 11AM. After the surgery Gopal has to be in observation for 3-5 weeks.

It is very important for Gopal to go through this surgery and it costs $8600. Please donate to help support Gopal to go through the surgery and recover back to his normal health soon. Please also keep Gopal in your prayers for his quick recovery. Thank you!

We have setup a fundraiser for this. To make a donation, please click below:

Come and witness the wonderful creation of God on this auspicious day. Visitors will be able to feed the cows (Feeds/Fruits will be available for a nominal donation), decorate the calves with jewelry and can also perform Gopuja between 12pm to 3pm.

On the Actual Sankranti / Pongal day Tuesday, January 15th we will be open for extended hours in order for visitors to have an opportunity to visit and serve the cows.  
Extended hours: 7:30am – 10:30am and 4:30pm – 7:30pm.




Cows and Bulls have special place in our tradition, they are integral part of our life and play a very vital role in agricultural activities by helping to plough in the fields to prepare for farming and providing the most nourishing milk for our living.  Since we take milk from the cows we treat them as our mother. Hence In various parts of India the farmers honor their cattle during Sankaranti by celebrating it as a day of thanks-giving to them and worship them for the well being of the society.
