    Goh dhaanam

    Can any of the learned and well informed persons enlighten me on the significance,procedures,and the way to perform the Goh Dhaanam.Is there any document available?

    If one wishes to do this,are there any organisations in Chennai or any other place which accept the Dhaanam and look after the cows well?

    I am eager to get the information from any of you.

    Gho daanam

    Sir:

    You can buy a cow and give it or you can pay the cost of a cow
    to the Institutions and also a sum towards the corpus for daily
    feeding of the cow. The toal cost might be around Rs 45k to 50 k.

    The Mutts have their own sastris who do the initial puja.

    Please try at Sri Sanakara mutt, Kanchi or West Mambalam, chennai
    or sri Yogi Ramsuratkumar Ashram, Tiruvannamalai or sri
    Ramanashramam, T.V.Malai or Sri Gnanananda Trust,
    Thapovanam. I know that these Instittutions accept gho daanam.

    regards,
    N.R.Ranganathan.

    Dear Sri Sabesanji,
    When my mother passed away about a year back, the same thought had come to us & we started enquiring with the scholars. But the system is so deep, in which we become responsible if the person hit the cow, if not provide them with the sufficient food, if he abandon them in their oldage ...etc. Hence, it become difficult to find a suitable person.

    Second idea was thought & enquired locally. There is a goshala at whitefield, Bangalore Maintained by jains. which takes care of abandoned cows & looks for the healthy cows to feed the abandoned calf, treating the bed ridden cows ...etc. Maintain their health & day today expanditures from selling milk.

    Donating the cow to them will be very highly appriciatable thought. Also they don't have any reservation on value of the cow to be donated. Generally cost of a cow starts from 10 K to 50K depending upon the donor capacity & breed.

    They even suggested to get them the cows from the weekly cow market which cost about 6K, where generally butchers by them so a life can be saved.

    Pranam,
    L.srinivas

    Go dhana

    If any one can explain in detail the spiritual significance of 'gho dhana' during the death of one's beloved ones and the benefits of giving "gho dhana' with vedic references it will be beneficial to all

    My Grandmother did Goh Dhaanam before her death and my mother now wants to do the same.I always thought it is done when one is alive, at the evening of life.

    Yes,in my initial Posting I wanted to know about the significance also.

    One of my uncle in my village did Goh Dhaanam on his Sastiapthapoorthi. Only thing is receiver of Goh Dhanam has to have requisite qualifications and strength to receive the same. Sengalipuram Anantharama Dikshidar's younger brother Anjaneya Dikshidar received the Goh Dhanam.

    I don't know much about religious significance.

    All the best

    i didn't know go-daanam is done late in life.

    i did go daanam only last year and i am not old.

    someone told me to "do go-daanam it will save your life", and truly, last year i went thru a series of mishaps, escaped accidents four times......one morning on the way to work last year, the taxi i was in rammed into a vehicle in the front with maximum impact, i was really rattled, it was near escape on not one but two occassions...

    i dunno if go-daanam helped, perhaps it is superstition, but after someone did the go-daanam on my behalf, things did improve, no accidents, and other things seemed to settle as well...

    i too am keen to know the significance of go-danam..
