This rehabilitation centre of this old-aged of the Society has been set up at GAUDIYA MISSION with an idea to take care of the old men and women who had given their best to the service of the family and the nation and later found themselves abandoned.
The setting up of this old age home meant to find a joyous life with fresh air and fresh food and a healthy ambience so that they may spend their final days of life in perfect happiness. They will have the feel of a family as some twenty seven members in the home will lead a collective life of sharing and caring. And being properly cooked after.
We are being able to give them a life of familial atmosphere in that area where they found an abode 27 members togetherly to share in their well and woes which is far way from a stinking atmosphere of flesh trading. They have found better living, a living with a touch of humanity from which they were bereaved from.
This is a capital project for old-aged persons that would include a regular attention to spiritual life for ‘atma-kalyan’ which would enhance and sustain their remaining life with honour. Old age home provides free accommodation including meal to economically weaker men and women who are of the age of sixty-five years or more.

Lord Krishna’s love for Cows
Lord Krishna is called Gopala, the protector of cows. Srila Rupa Goswamipad describes His transcendental Form as a cowherd, covered with the dust raised by the hooves of cows. All the nine lakh cows in His father’s cowshed received his personal attention and loving care. Thus, by his own example, Lord Krishna teaches the importance of caring for cows. He upholds these harmless and vulnerable animals as symbol of pure maternal love and hence their service.
Mission’s contribution to cow welfare
In the Goshalas (cowsheds) of the Mission, the cows are offered clean shelter are fed grass, fodder, vegetables, jaggery and prasadam of Lord Krishna. The shelters provide protection even during adverse conditions like heavy rains and floods. The cows live the entire duration of their lives peacefully. All their needs including general health and breeding are looked after with due care and affection.
Special attention is given to the comfort of the cows in the hot summer months. The calves drink milk from their mothers till they are fit and strong. The well cared cows supply milk that is used in the service of deity and vaishnavas. They are always milked by hand. The Panca-gavya, five products of milk, yoghurt, ghee, cowdung and cow urine received from the cow are used in all ceremonies performed according to the Vedic traditions.
Sponsor Krishna’s cows and obtain His mercy!
