Among the various sacred animals of Hinduism, the most prominent position belongs to the sacred cow . For Hinduism, cattle are sacred, and especially the cow that refers to fertility and abundance, and symbolizes the generosity of the earth . Cows can roam undisturbed in the stifled Indian traffic, even in big cities, surrounded by a respectful attitude and you will never find a driver who gets angry because he is forced to stop or complicated maneuvers because a cow is lying in his lane.

The mother cow "Gau mata"

In Hinduism the cow is venerated as Gau mata or "mother cow" , the cow is adored, decorated during the holidays, carried in procession. There is also a newspaper called Indian Cow and there is also a trust with the aim of " spreading and promoting love for cows " ( www.love4cow.com ), even a Hindu organization has launched cosmetics using the cow urine and dung.

Most member states of India prohibit the slaughter of cows, and this ban has often been criticized by many, because beef is cheaper than chicken and fish and is a staple for poorer Muslim, tribal communities. and dalits (untouchables)… without forgetting the numerous people who still have insufficient nutrition that could partly be compensated with meat from the slaughter of cows. Episodes that tell of families persecuted to the point of being killed because they are surprised or only suspected of having eaten meat in secret are frequent and the campaign against bovine slaughter is a hot topic at every election. In some areas where the topic is very hot, even protective corps of vigilantes have sprung up patrolling the streets. There are campaigns underway calling for the cow to replace the tiger as a national animal, there are polls, movements of thought.

Certainly as with many other issues, the cow topic has become a political issue in India.

But why do Indians love cows so much?

There are historical, religious and cultural reasons. First of all, the cow is also a beautiful thing in Western ideas and thinking. Her large eyes, her calm, her dull skin dyed in a palette ranging from off-white to gray through beige and brown, her pictorial silhouette with her characteristic hump, make her the most advanced of animals. Small parenthesis , cows in India are actually zebus with the characteristic hump that bears on the back just behind the neck, although over the last few decades some European cows have been brought in because they guaranteed a higher milk production, but the majority are zebu with the characteristic hump, dewlap, large ears and also with often horns.

The cosmic cow Kamadhenu

In the Bhagavad Gita the cosmic cow is Kamadhenu , the "wish-fulfilling cow", born according to legend during the blending of the ocean of milk in which the devas and asura demons participated. In the celestial archetype the cow is adored by a royal character. On the body of the animal the divine world is depicted where all the divinities find space: the sun and the moon are its eyes, the body is inhabited by the divinities, sages, seers and on the legs you can see the main mountain ranges. On foot there is a calf crouched which alludes to the virtue of love, the maternal feeling, made of tenderness and protection which is called vatsalya from vast "calf".

Often the cosmic cow is surmounted by three busts or depictions of the three male divinities: Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva with the typical iconographic characteristics that distinguish them.
