BENGALURU: “The government will have to learn from the Kannada fable of Punyakoti, a cow that feeds milk to an orphan deer. Punyakoti is a tale that can guide us in protecting cows,” said Raghaveshwar seer of Ramachandrapura mutt. He was speaking on the 34th day of Raghaveshwara Bharati Swamiji’s gouchaturmasya programme held on Sunday organised by Sri Ramachandrapura mutt.

Speaking on the occasion he said, “In the past, the cow wasn’t regarded as a family member. The attachement with goumata and the people were different. Today, children seldom get to learn about cow even in their text books.” Sri Shankarcharya has established Sri Ramachandrapura mutt at a place when an orphan deer was fed milk by a fierce tiger. On the occasion, a dance drama of Punyakoti story was played, and ‘Nadeyalondu Nudi’, a collection of discourses of Raghaveshwara seer, penned by Ravindra Bhat Soori was released.
