Join us to celebrate Sankranti (Pongal) on Saturday, January 13th between 12pm - 3pm at Sri Krishna Balaram's Hasati Goshala in Vaikuntha Hill at the address 2425 Old Calaveras Rd, Milpitas, CA. Come and witness the wonderful creation of God on an auspicious day. Visitors will be able to feed the cows (Feeds/Fruits will be available for nominal donation) and can also perform Gopuja ($51) between 12pm to 3pm.

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 cattles during Sankaranti by celebrating it as a day of thanks-giving to them and worship them for the well being of the society.
