Gho Pooja

Significance of Gho Pooja

Worship Goddess Kamadhenu on Fridays and Goddess Lakshmi will bless you with Abundance. In India, cows have been treated as sacred and as a personification of Goddess Kamadhenu. Vedas say that Goddess Kamadhenu is a cosmos where all the Gods, Goddess, Devas including the Trinity (Shiva, Vishnu, Brahma along with their Consorts) reside. It is also stated in the myths that offering prayers to Goddess Kamadhenu is equivalent to worshipping our ancestors and hence it is considered to be auspicious to feed the cows on a New Moon Day. The cow is worshipped every day and has a very major significance in family rituals. The cow is called as Kamadhenu, the wish-fulfilling sacred cow.

Gho Pooja means worshipping Goddess Kamadhenu. Puranas say that Mother Kamadhenu ("Gho Matha") emanated from the milky ocean while the Devas and Asuras were churning the ocean and she was taken into possession by Devas. As Kamadhenu fulfilled the wishes of all, the Devas flourished with her divine grace.

Once Kamadhenu left the Devas and reached the Ashram of Sage Vasishta. The Brahma Rishi started Kamadhenu Pooja (worshipping of the sacred cow). Legend goes that King Dileepa was blessed with a child with the divine grace of Kamadhenu and he performed Kamadhenu Pooja as per the instructions of the Brahma Rishi. It is said that Vasishtar was an inspiration for all to understand the importance of "Gho Pooja" and the benefits that could be accrued through this worship.

Performance of Homa for Goddess Lakshmi along with Gho Pooja is the most appropriate way of propitiating Goddess Lakshmi that too on a Friday that falls during the Tamil month of Thai (mid Jan to Mid Feb). To perform this Gho Pooja and Lakshmi Homa on a Friday is more auspicious because Venus rules Friday and the Overlord of Venus is Goddess Lakshmi. Worshipping Goddess Lakshmi on a Friday also helps you in gaining the blessings of Venus who bestows you with pleasures and comforts in life.
