Kamdhenu is the sacred cow of the Hindus. According to Hindu mythology Kamdhenu emerged from the ocean during the great Samudra Manthan and was given to the Saptarishis. Another Hindu belief is that Brahma created Kamdhenu to provide milk to rishis and ghee for them to perform in their havans. Kamdhenu is the mother of all cows and the fulfiller of all wishes and desires. It is believed that if a child born with inauspicious stars is passed under a cow then the effects of these stars will be negated. Kamdhenu is known by various other names also prominent amongst them are Surabhi, Aditi, Matrika, Nanda, Kapila etc. It is the belief in Hindu mythology that there are many deities residing in Kamdhenu. She is regarded as Devi by the Hindus, as the mother providing prosperity to all her children. She is likened to mother Earth, is pure, fertile and of an ever sacrificing nature. Almost all the major gods and devas are said to reside in Kamdhenu. The four legs of Kamdhenu are supposed to be as strong as the Himalayas. The divine trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh are symbolized by her horns, her eyes by the Sun and the Moon, her shoulders by Agni and Vayu. Not even Kamdhenu infact every cow is sacred in hinduism and worshipped as god.
