Janmashtami 2021 : Shri Krishna ji got a lot of association with not only milk and butter in Gokul but also cows. Baal used to go to the forest daily with Sakhas and graze his cows. He had such a great love for cows that he stopped worshiping Indra in Braj and started worshiping cows, due to this love he also got the name Gopal. It is believed that on the day of Janmashtami, if the devotees themselves serve cow, then they are showered with special grace of Krishna.
To get the blessings of Lord Shri Krishna, give four-water etc. to the cow daily. There is legislation, but it will not be possible for everyone in today’s era. Despite this, feed the cow on the day of Janmashtami. If possible, make the first home-made roti for the cow daily and take time to feed it. This will not only bring blessings of Gomata, but also the blessings of all the Gods and Goddesses including Lord Krishna. The cow loves jaggery all the time, if possible, feed jaggery-gram to the cow. Chana with jaggery is considered to be the best food on Janmashtami, so feed jaggery-gram to cow on Janmashtami according to your ability. Apart from this, the cow must be bathed on the day of Janmashtami. The merit received by doing this is considered to be equal to bathing 33 categories of deities along with Lord Krishna. It is believed that where cows are happy, negative energy never flourishes.
